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.

George Orwell was born Eric Arthur Blair on June 25, 1903 in Motihari in Bengal, India and later studied at Eton College for four years. He was an assistant superintendent with the Indian Imperial Police in Burma. He left that position after five years and moved to Paris, where he wrote his first two books: Burmese Days and Down and Out in Paris and London. He then moved to Spain to write but decided to join the United Workers Marxist Party Militia. After being decidedly opposed to communism, he served in the British Home Guard and with the Indian Service of the BBC during World War II. After the war, he wrote for the Observer and was literary editor for the Tribune. His best known works are Animal Farm and 1984. His other works include A Clergyman's Daughter, Keep the Aspidistra Flying, The Road to Wigan Pier, Homage to Catalonia, and Coming Up for Air. He died on January 21, 1950 at the age of 46.
