A revolution is brewing among the animals of Manor Farm and one fine day they overthrow the owner Mr. Jones. The farm is renamed Animal Farm: Having vanquished Man, animals are on their own and they adopt Seven Commandments of Animalism: 1. Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy. 2. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend. 3. No animal shall wear clothes. 4. No animal shall sleep in a bed. 5. No animal shall drink alcohol. 6. No animal shall kill any other animal. 7. All animals are equal. But then a controlling elite develops among animals and soon come the amendments; one by one; and the most important of them is all animals are equal - but some are more equal than others. It is the history of a revolution that went wrong, Orwell wrote describing his novel Animal Farm. Written allegorically to reflect upon the Russian Revolution up to Stalin era, Animal Farm is one of the finest novels ever written in English language.

Eric Arthur Blair (George Orwell) was born on June 25, 1903 in Bihar, India. He was educated in England. At 19, Orwell joined the Imperial Police. He was posted in Burma (Myanmar) where he lived until his resignation. Afterwards, he stayed briefly in London and then spent two years in Paris where he worked as a journalist. Upon his return to England, Orwell worked succinctly as a schoolteacher and then went on to fight for the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War. He was wounded in the war and went to Morocco for six months. Orwell contracted tuberculosis in the following years and although he continued his life in the same fashion, he was never ever fit. He died on January 21, 1950. Throughout his life, Orwell fought vigorously against totalitarianism and social injustice. He was a keen observer and made good use of his pen wherever her went. His first novel Burmese Days evokes the memories of Colonial Burma of his time. Down and Out in Paris and London depicts his struggling years in two cities. The Road to Wigan Pier is an account of the poor and poverty during his years in Lancashire and Yorkshire. Similarly, Homage to Catalonia and Coming Up for Air commemorate Spanish Civil War and his years in Morocco respectively. In addition, Orwell profusely contributed articles to a number of periodicals. However, his greatest moment came when he penned down Animal Farm, a political satire against the fascist Soviet regime written allegorically during the Second World War. The dystopian 1984 followed Animal Farm and together they brought Orwell enduring worldwide fame. He has been ranked second on a list of ‘The Fifty Greatest British Writers since 1945’ by The Times.
