Born Eric Arthur Blair (1903) , Orwell

never abandoned his real name, but his

first book was shown as the work of

George Orwell (the last name he choose

from the River Orwell).

He was born in Bengal. After going back to

England with his parents,

he was sent in 1911 to a boarding school

where he was known among the other

boys by his poverty and his intellectual

brilliance.

He won scholarships to two of England's

best schools, Winchester and Eton. Instead of

accepting a scholarship to a university, Orwell

wanted to follow family tradition and, in

1922, went to Burma as an assistant to

the Imperial Police.

In 1927 Orwell, on leave to England, decided

not to return to Burma, and on Jan. 1, 1928, he

quit the imperial police. In the autumn of 1927

he had started on a course of action to help him

improve his writing skills. He went into the East

End of London to live in cheap old houses

among beggars; he spent a period in Paris and

worked as a dishwasher in French hotels.

Animal Farm

Animal Farm is referring to the Russian revolution in 1917. George Orwell demonstrates many events of this by using the characters of Animals. The animals overthrow the Manor farm and turn it into Animal Farm. However there are two leaders running for the head of Animal Farm. This book is masterpiece in political literature and its dark metaphor rings thru clearly.

Animal Farm has seen off all the oppositions. It is valid today as it as fifty years ago - Ralph Steadman

A wise, compassionate and illuminating fable of all times – The New York Times

Absolutely first-rate…compare to Voltaire and Swift. – Edmund Wilson in The New Yorker

“Beasts of England! Beasts of Ireland!Beasts of land and sea and skies!Hear the hoof beats of tomorrow!See the golden future rise!”“The singing of this song threw the

animals into the wildest excitement. Almost before Major had reached the

end, they had begun singing it for themselves. Even the stupidest of them

had already picked up the tune and a few of the words, and as for the clever

ones, such as the pigs and dogs, they had the entire song by heart within

a few minutes.”

This is the song that gave the animal

the inspiration and willingness to overthrow

Manor Farm after The old Major passed away.

The two pigs Snowball and Napoleon decide

to take over the positing of The Old Major

and to overthrow the Manor Farm. Anyhow

for them it is clear there can only be one

true leader to be the head of Animal Farm.

Snowball convinces with great speeches

while Napoleon is using Squealer. The animals

of Animal Farm start working on the brilliant

idea of building a windmillto produce electricity,

but there is only one leader. A leader that

makes the animals work hard and in very bad

conditions. While the ex leader is trying to

destroy the windmill and succeeds. Animal

Farm moves from a happy and peaceful farm

to a violent farm where animals have to fight

and loose their friends. Their leader is strict and

takes his role serious. George Orwell’s novel

Animal Farm has introduced readers across the

whole world to his way of rewriting history.
