Selected in the Great Books of the Western World 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. animal shall wear clothes. 4. animal shall sleep in a bed. 5. animal shall drink alcohol. 6. 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.
