Orwell, GeorgeSeries: NCEA Level One Reading
NotesGeorge Orwell introduced by Don Watson
DescriptionAll animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.
Farmer Jones has neglected his livestock for too long. In a burst of insurgent fervour he is deposed, and the pigs take charge of Animal Farm. Everything runs smoothly, productivity soars and all the animals are well-fed and happy.
But as memory of the revolution fades, its ideals become more distant and when Boxer the workhorse is betrayed, the horrifying extent of the pigs corruption is revealed.
