'It is the history of a revolution that went wrong-and of the excellent
excuses that were forthcoming at every step for the perversion of the
original doctrine,' wrote George Orwell for the first edition of ANIMAL
FARM in 1945. His simple and tragicfable, telling of what happens when the
animals drive out Mr Jones and attempt to run the farm themselves, has
since become a world-famous classic of English prose. 'Surely the most
important fictional satire to be written in twentieth-century Britain'
Malcolm Bradbury
