Critical Evaluation - "Animal Farm" - George Orwell

Raymond England 4r2

The novel "Animal Farm" by George Orwell tells us the story of a farm's change to Communism, through animals. It loosely tells the story of the fall of the Czar's rule and the rise of Communism in Russia.

He attended Eton public school from 1917-1921 and served with the Indian Imperial Police in Burma from 1922-1927. From 1936-1937, he fought in the Spanish Civil War. His two most famous books are "1984", written in 1949, and "Animal Farm", which was written in 1945. He also published lesser-known books and many essays until his death in 1950.
