General Description

In Animal Farm, George Orwell poignantly satirizes the system and pitfalls of Soviet communism. The story takes place on a farm populated by anthropomorphic farm animals who symbolize political figures of communist Russia. Easy to follow yet still profound, Orwell’s novella speaks to the inherent ability of power to corrupt.
