It is the history of the revolution that went wrong – and of the excellent excuses that were forthcoming at every step for the perversion of the original doctrine – George Orwell (1945)

Veritas Books: Animal Farm A Fairy Story G.Orwell


His simple and tragic fable, telling what happens when the animals drive out Mr. Jones, the farmer, and attempt to run their farm themselves, has since become a world-famous classic of English prose. Though Orwell has written “Animal Farm” ‘primarily as a satire on the Russian Revolution’ it was intended to have a wider application. That kind of revolution, which he defined as ‘violent conspiratorial revolution, led by unconsciously power-hungry people’, could only lead to a change of masters. He went on: ‘I meant the moral to be that revolutions only effect a radical improvement when the masses are alert and know how to chuck out their leaders as soon as the latter have done their job. The turning-point of the story was supposed to be when the pigs kept the milk and apples for themselves’
