Animal Farm is a classic novel by George Orwell that is widely regarded as a masterpiece of political satire and allegory. The book tells the story of a group of farm animals who rebel against their human farmer in order to create a society where animals are free and equal. The animals create a new system of government that is based on the principles of Animalism, and they work together to build a better future for themselves.
However, over time, the pigs who take charge of the new society begin to act more and more like their former human oppressors. They use their intelligence and cunning to manipulate and exploit the other animals, gradually turning the once-utopian farm into a dictatorship. As the pigs become more corrupt and power-hungry, the other animals realize that they have been betrayed, and they struggle to reclaim their freedom and autonomy.
Throughout the book, Orwell uses the animals and their struggle as a metaphor for the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the subsequent rise of Stalinism in the Soviet Union. The book is a powerful critique of totalitarianism and the abuse of power, and it remains an important work of political fiction to this day.
