George Orwell's timeless and timely allegorical novel—a scathing satire on a downtrodden society’s blind march towards totalitarianism“All animals are eual but some animals are eual than others”A farm is taken over by its overworked mistreated animals With flaming idealism and stirring slogans they set out to create a paradise of progress justice and euality Thus the stage is set for one of the most telling satiric fables ever penned—a razor edged fairy tale for grown ups that records the evolution from revolution against tyranny to a totalitarianism just as terrible When Animal Farm was first published Stalinist Russia was seen as its target Today it is devastatingly clear that wherever and whenever freedom is attacked under whatever banner the cutting clarity and savage comedy of George Orwell’s masterpiece have a meaning and message still ferociously fresh

    's very Orwellian involvement with this book at the end If ever partnered Facebook they'd own usThis is not really a review but one of those moments where everything that was clear to you suddenly becomes utterly muddied and you really can't say what lies beneath the murky waters although a moment before you were sure you couldI'm reading Christopher Hitchen's astonishingly percipient and brilliant Arguably Essays I read Animal Farm too young to identify the individual animals with actual characters on the stage of communism the old boar Major is Marx Farmer Jones is the Tsar the pigs Napoleon and Snowball Stalin and Trotsky respectively so this essay is giving me a lot to think about So far nothing so than this uote below Background to the uote A group of Ukrainian and Polish refugees in a displaced persons' camp had discovered sympathetic parallels with their own plight in Orwell's parable and had begged him for permission to translate his almost totally unknown book But The emotions of the American military authorities in Europe were not so easily touched They rounded up all the copies of Animal Farm they could find and turned them over to the Red Army to be burned The alliance between the farmers and the pigs so hauntingly described in the final pages of the novel were still in force The book is banned in Cuba North Korea Burma Iran Kenya and most Arab countries It is banned in the UAE not because of it's content but because it has anthropomorphic talking pigs which are unIslamic is this not Orwellian in itself? It is still censored in Vietnam These nations wouldn't want ordinary people reading the book and looking at their own ruling porcine elites and seeing any parallels now would they?

    This is a book I've been meaning to read for ages but never got around to last week I not only read it but gave a lesson on the historical context for the grade 8 class who will be reading this book and The Wave As I found out of the class of 24 about 20 of them had already read the book and at least one kid knew it was an allegory of the Russian Revolution Still my lesson wasn't totally redundant For anyone who isn't familiar with the story Animal Farm is about the animals on a farm in England rising up against the incompetent cruel farmer Mr Jones who represents the deposed Tsar Nicholas II and taking over the farm renaming it Animal Farm USSR and so the glorious vision intended running it for themselves so their lives would be betterThe vision is given to them by a pig Old Major who dies not long afterwards Old Major probably represents Vladimir Lenin and Karl Marx and it's not the socialist ideal put forward that is critiued by this book but how that vision is corrupted by certain other characters namely another pig called Napoleon who represents Joseph Stalin Napoleon chases a pig called Snowball Leon Trotsky off the farm with his personally trained dogs while still just the General Secretary of the Party Stalin recruited people who would follow him blindly so that when Lenin died in 1924 he was able to defeat Trotsky for the leadership position and his dogs kept everyone else in lineThe pigs then take charge and with their literacy skills keep changing the rules the animals established in order to suit themselves using a pig called Suealer to convince the other animals that their memories are faulty After all as the drafthorse Boxer keeps saying Comrade Napoleon is always rightBoxer is for me the most heartbreaking character in the novel He represents the peasants and is the most hardworking animal on the farm He has utter faith in the leadership of Napoleon and works himself to the bone literally His reward is very telling though I don't want to give it away Most of the characters represent either a person several people or groups of people and for the complete list you can check it out on WikipediaOrwell while a socialist was very cynical about Stalin's communist USSR and for good reason Animal Farm is a very well written critiue of how socialist ideals are corrupted by powerful people how the uneducated masses are taken advantage of and how the dictator or communist leaders turn into capitalists just look at China It's a wonderful example of how effective the allegorical styleformat can be and a well deserved classic

    The only good pig is a dead pigYeah yeah everyone claims Orwell wrote this as about the Russian Revolution Stalin and the rise of Communism Pshttt WhateverYou know what I think he was really saying? Beware the Other White Meat Ok maybe not Look I know what you're thinking That pig looks adorable but the next thing you know that piggy is all grown up and stealing your cookiesAnd you'll let it steal your cookies because Mr Pig has convinced you that giving up your cookies every day was a part of the original agreement Besides what do you know you're just a stupid sheepPlus it's just a cookie where's the harm?Not to mention the last guy who complained about giving up his cookie ended up mauled by that dog Probably just a coincidence though Right?But it's ok because pigs are smart That's what everyone says right? Smarter than you are at any rate And if the pig says it's ok then it's okI mean look at it It couldn't possibly have anything but your best interests at heartAlright I'm outta pig gifsSo I thought this was a pretty cool book Sure it's supposed to be about Russia but it could just as easily be about the working class in my country Bottom line?We need to stop listening to the spin doctors on the boob tube and start thinking for ourselves uestion everything especially the things we think we know are true It might be a good idea to teach our kids that it's ok to not blindly believe everything we tell them too Besides if we're right then our ideals can stand up to the scrutiny of children Otherwise we risk raising a generation of idiots Oh I found one pig gif

حیوانات، یا «قلعه حیوانات»، رمانی پاد آرمان‌شهری، به زبان انگلیسی، و نوشته ی «جُرج اُروِل» است؛ ایشان این رمان را، در طول جنگ جهانی دوم بنوشته، و در سال 1945میلادی، در «انگلستان» منتشر کرده است؛ «مزرعه ی حیوانات»، درباره ی گروهی از جانوران اهلی ست، که در اقدامی آرمانگرایانه و انقلابی، صاحب مزرعه آقای جونز را، از مزرعه‌ ی خویش فراری می‌دهند، تا خود اداره ی مزرعه را به‌ دست گرفته، و «برابری» و «رفاه» را، در جامعه ی خود، برقرار سازندرهبری این جنبش را، گروهی از خوک‌ها، به‌ دست دارند، ولی پس از مدتی، این گروه انقلابی نیز، به رهبری خوکی به نام «ناپلئون»، همچون همان آقای «جونز»، به بهره‌ کشی از حیوانات مزرعه می‌پردازند، و هرگونه مخالفتی را سرکوب می‌کنند «اورول»، با نگارش این رُمان، از استبداد طبقه ی حاکم شوروی، به سختی ناراضی، و باور داشتند نظام شوروی به یک دیکتاتوری بدل گشته، و بر پایه ی کیش شخصیت، بنا شده استداستان، با توصیف شبی آغاز می‌شود، که خوکی به نام «میجر پیر»، حیوانات را گرد هم آورده، و از ستمی که انسان بر حیوانات روا داشته، برای آنان سخن می‌گوید، و حیوانات را، به شورش علیه انسان دعوت می‌کندوی سپس، یک سرود کهن را که پس از آن به سرودی انقلابی، در بین حیوانات مزرعه تبدیل می‌شود، به آنها یاد میدهد پس از چندی، حیوانات در پی شورشی، مالک مزرعه، به نام آقای «جونز» را، از مزرعه بیرون کرده، و خود اداره ی آن را به دست می‌گیرندپس از آن انقلاب حیوانی، خوکها که از هوش بالاتری نسبت به سایر حیوانات برخوردار هستند نقش رهبری حیوانات مزرعه را به دست می‌گیرند؛ اما پس از چندی در بین خود حیوانات، یک سری توطئه، و کودتا انجام می‌گیرد؛ «ناپلئون» که یکی از دو خوک پرنفوذ مزرعه است، با استفاده از سگ‌های درنده‌ ای که مخفیانه تربیت کرده؛ «سنوبال»، دیگر خوک پرنفوذ مزرعه را فراری داده، و خود رهبر بلامنازع مزرعه می‌شود؛ پس از آن، «سنوبال» عامل «جونز» معرفی شده، و تمام رویدادهای بد، و خرابکاری‌هایی که در مزرعه صورت می‌گیرد، به وی یا عوامل او در داخل مزرعه نسبت داده می‌شود؛ و به فرمان «ناپلئون» عده ی زیادی از حیوانات، به جرم همکاری با «سنوبال»، توسط سگ‌ها اعدام می‌شونددر ادامه ی داستان خوک‌ها به‌ تدریج همه ی قوانین حیوانات را زیر پا می‌گذارند قانون اساسی حیوانات معروف به «هفت فرمان» به تدریج محو و تحریف می‌شود، خواندن سرود قدغن، و حیوانات با غذای روزانه ی کم، مجبور به کار بسیار می‌شوند؛ در حالیکه خوک‌ها فرمانروایی می‌کنند، و غذای زیادی می‌خورند؛ و از تمام امکانات رفاهی سود می‌برند؛ و حتی یاد می‌گیرند که چطور روی دوپا راه بروند، و با انسان‌ها معامله کننداز جمله برنامه‌ های «ناپلئون»، ساخت «آسیاب بادی» ست، که قرار است برای بهبود کیفیت زندگی حیوانات ساخته شود؛ نقشه ی نخستین آسیاب، توسط «سنوبال» طرح‌ریزی شده بوده، و در ابتدا «ناپلئون» به مخالفت با آن برمی‌خیزد، ولی با بیرون راندن «سنوبال»، ایده ی ساخت آن را پی می‌گیرد، اما به دلیل بی کفایتی «ناپلئون»، ساخت آن به شکل مطلوبی پیش نمی‌روددر پایان، ساخته شدن آسیاب، که با فداکاری‌ها و زجر و تحمل فراوان حیوانات مزرعه، امکان‌پذیر گردیده، نه تنها به بهبود وضعیت زندگی حیوانات منجر نمی‌شود، که خود به آسبابی برای بهره‌ کشی بیشتر از حیوانات بدل می‌گرددتاریخ بهنگام رسانی 19051399هجری خورشیدی؛ ا شربیانی

    Funnily enough i read this book as a child and thought that it really WAS about animals I remember thinking Evil Pigs I'm glad you're bacon in MY world and Poor Hardworking Horsies come live on my farm instead You can have all the hay and makopa you want sadly no apples tropical climateI reread it after education spoiled my natural inclinations for fast and absolute punishment of evildoers and eternal rewards for the good I do find it pleasantly strange that these animals are symbols for political stereotypes and yet people still appear in the book Isn't that CRAZY? That's literary perversion in a class all its ownI'm thankful i read this in my formative years before I had all this intellectual baggage emphasis on baggage piano on the intellect because I got to appreciate it like a child would almost like the way I appreciated Charlotte's Web To me back then it was just another story about animals albeit a wordy one with no picturesWhich is probably why I still experience a certain righteous thrill when eating crispy bacon

    Update after my February 2020 Re readA lot has happened in the world since I read this in high school in the mid 1990s The book is as interesting and powerful as I remember However I think having an adult perspective on life government laws taxes rights etc makes this a much powerful for me now than it was when I was a teenager One of the great things about this book too is that it is not very long I think that morality tales with political undertones can be daunting if you know you are dealing with a 300 page book This tells a strong tale in 125 pages or so that is easy to read but difficult to swallow An allegory that is a must read for allI will also say that this book has an ending that I remember as being “wow but not super shocking” as a teenager Now it is absolutely terrifying – it gave me chillsOriginal reviewOne of the best no doubt So much symbolism and meaning crammed into such a small book Also a great use of anthropomorphism I just wanted to use a big fancy sounding wordReview wise that is about all I need to say it is great read itBut I will add this anecdote I read this when I was in High School as reuired reading Most reuired reading books were long and not all that exciting I am looking at you Jane Eyre But this one was so good that I couldn't put it down And since it is so short I read it in one night Well the teacher had assigned chapters and asked us not to read ahead Still hard to believe I got in trouble for reading too much of a reuired reading book

    This book is featured on Shabby Sunday read Animal Farm when I was in college and it was one of those reads where you think it’s going to be boring but it turns out to be a favorite It’s an allegorical tale representing the Russian Revolution where the characters in the book represent people during this timeI won’t go into the plot too much but in a nutshell this story is about a group of farm animals who rise up against the evil farmer who cares for them They basically take over the farm by cause of Old Major MarxLenen the pig all about change He get’s all the animals together into an uprising against Mr Jones the farmer Tsar Nicholas II The animal characters then run the farm themselves and develop their own hierarchy being lead by Snowball Trotsky and Napoleon Stalin In a way the story reminds me of an Aesop’s Fable because the animal characters in the book have human characteristics and there are morals and messages that are uite obvious Young readers can read it and they won’t pick up on the meaning–they’ll just think it’s a story about a group of rebellious farm animals against humans but I believe the message that Orwell wanted to express is that power corrupts Also that people need to think for themselves educate yourself and make your own decisions Don’t let others think for youSomeone recently asked me who my favorite character was in the book which is a really difficult uestion to ask in my opinion I liked a handful of the characters including Boxer Snowball Benjamin and Clover but if I had to choose a favorite it would have to be Snowball Snowball’s ideas were in the best interests of the animals and he was always fair He wanted to educate the other animals and make life easier for them He was intelligent brave and stood up for his beliefs which is why he’s my favorite character in the bookI’m not sure exactly how old my edition of Animal Farm is because no publication date is given however Goodreads seems to have this Signet Classic published in 1956 This thin paperback is in great shape for it’s age with clean crisp pagesMy rating on this one is 5

    ALL ANIMALS ARE EUAL BUT SOME ARE MORE EUAL THAN OTHERS In the start I thought this book would be from the view point of animals; about how they are treated how they expect to be treated and how man is cruel towards themBut but but;I am amazed at how Orwell criticizes the political maneuvers and totalitarian rule using animals to explain what humans do The author beautifully portrays the way a revolution is started to stop what is happening and going full circle comes to the same point it started from Just the face of power is changed This book tells how the ruling class makes fool of the working class uses their energies and resources for their own pleasure What happens behind the closed doors of power How the working class is being brain washed that they are happy and satisfied and free despite of the obvious slavery they have been undergoing My favorite character was Benjamin yes a donkey who remains a neutral throughout and says nothing despite understanding everythingA huge applause to Orwell for being able to explain human psyche political and social dilemma wrapped in the form of this story
