Manor Farm is run by its drunken owner, Mr. Jones, and his incompetent workers. Chafing under their exploitation, the animals rise up against their human masters and take over the farm. Under the guidance of the intellectually superior pigs, the animals then set out to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality. But as time passes, their labors don't have quite the results they expected, and they begin to realize that their porcine leaders may have other purposes in mind.
On one level, Animal Farm is a simple tale about barnyard animals. On a deeper level, it is a pointed political satire about corrupted ideals, class conflict, and misdirected revolution--themes as valid today as when the book was first published. As we continue to wrestle with these issues, the cutting clarity of Orwell's masterpiece delivers an enduring warning for all who care about justice, freedom, and equality.
