Animal Farm

George Orwell

Born as Eric Arthur Blair, in 1903 in Bengal, where his father worked for the Opium Department of the Government of India, George Orwell started out as an author in 1933 with the publication of his Down and Out in Paris and London, a truthful account of his destitute days in the two cities. He got noticed four years later, when he wrote The Road to Wigan Pier, which created a controversy with its sharp criticism of England's leftist intelligentsia, together with its repudiation of capitalism, the vices of which were reflected in the sordid existence of the working class. Orwell also wrote six fictional novels, including Animal Farm (1945) and 1984 (1949), besides several essay collections and an account of his involvement in the Spanish Civil War, Homage to Catalonia (1938).

He died in 1950 after a hopeless battle with tuberculosis.

Animal Farm

It is universally understood that George Orwell wrote Animal Farm – and later 1984 – as critiques of "International Communism" and of Soviet Union particularly. Animal Farm, which appeared before in 1945, gained popularity for its blatant allusion to what Orwell derided as the flawed communism of the Soviet Union. He intended the book as a scathing satire on the Russian leaders who sold out socialist ideals to fit hands-in-glove with the capitalist powers in the West. A confirmed socialist throughout his life, Orwell had a hard time getting Animal Farm published, as England in 1945 was an ally of the erstwhile Stalinist Russia. Most animal characters in the novel have their parallels in the world politics of the day.
