"Animal Farm" is one of the most famous warnings ever written. Orwell's immortal satire - 'against Stalin' as he wrote to his French translator - can be read on many levels. With its piercing clarity and deceptively simple style it is no surprise that this novel is required reading for schoolchildren and politicians alike. This fable of the steadfast horses Boxer and Clover, the opportunistic pigs Snowball and Napoleon, and the deafening choir of sheep remains an unparalleled masterpiece. One reviewer wrote 'In a hundred years' time perhaps "Animal Farm" ...may simply be a fairy story: today it is a fairy story with a good deal of point.' Over sixty years on in the age of spin, it is more relevant than ever. Rejected by such eminent publishing figures as Victor Gollancz, Jonathan Cape and T.S. Eliot, "Animal Farm" was published to great acclaim by Martin Secker and Warburg on 17 August 1945 in an edition of 4500 copies. In the centenary year of Martin Secker, Ltd., Harvill Secker is proud to publish this special edition with a brand-new introduction by Christopher Hitchens.

    Scritto contro il regime comunista in Russia, Orwell finisce per partorire un capolavoro che, in quanto tale, si adatta a tutte le dittature. Dal particolare arriva all'universale.

    Oedipus’s fables, White Fang, The Jungle’s Books, The Animal Farm (with a little bit of Swift’ satire). What a fascinating and long trip since the first steps of worldwide literature. It’s tradition of the animal fable which makes this plain, simple and yet remarkably potent allegory, a book of timeless value. Napoleone as Stalin and Snowball as Trotzsky? To much an easy question….

    Escrita por uno de los mayores cronistas del siglo XX, Rebelión en la granja es una fábula satírica que refleja la evolución política rusa a lo largo de la primera mitad del siglo pasado. Animalizando a sus protagonistas, Orwell disfraza los acontecimientos históricos a través de una trama sencilla: tras la muerte del Viejo Mayor, el cerdo más respetado de la granja, los animales se disponen a hacer realidad uno de sus sueños, una granja gobernada por las propias bestias.

    Tras desencadenar una revolución contra la familia dueña de la granja, los animales se hacen con ella y proclaman unas normas para todos ellos. También aprenden a leer y escribir y establecen una serie de criterios para poder abastecerse. Pero a lo largo de los años, los ideales se van desvaneciendo y el poder de la granja queda en manos de la élite porcina. Utilizando la fuerza bruta y abusando de su poder, los cerdos se autoproclaman los animales más inteligentes y dirigen al resto.

    Un romanzo che è una continua allegoria, per capirlo bisogna essere più adulti che ragazzi.
