Animal Farm (Warbler Classics Illustrated Edition)
Warbler Press, 2022
Animal Farm, George Orwell's satirical political fable, tells the story of a group of barnyard animals who overthrow their human masters in hopes of fashioning for themselves an egalitarian society. As their rebellion germinates and eventually fails in slow motion, Orwell draws deliberate parallels to events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the Stalinist era of the former Soviet Union. Animal Farm is considered one of Orwell's finest works-a flawless novella full of wit, imagination, and stylistic verve. This Warbler Classics edition contains twenty vintage illustrations drawn from Brockhaus Konversations-Lexikon.
