Un rotundo alegato a favor de la libertad y en contra el totalitarismo. Esta satira de la Revolucion Rusa y el triunfo del estalinismo, escrita en 1945, se ha convertido por derecho propio en un hito de la cultura contemporanea y en uno de los libros mas mordaces de todos los tiempos. Ante el auge de los animales de la Granja Solariega, pronto detectamos las semillas del totalitarismo en una organizacion aparentemente ideal; y en nuestros lideres mas carismaticos, la sombra de los opresores mas crueles. Una obra literaria perfecta. T. S. Eliot ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Animal Farm is the most famous by far of all twentieth-century political allegories. Its account of a group of barnyard animals who revolt against their vicious human master, only to submit to a tyranny erected by their own kind, can fairly be said to have become a universal drama. Orwell is one of the very few modern satirists comparable to Jonathan Swift in power, artistry, and moral authority; in animal farm his spare prose and the logic of his dark comedy brilliantly highlight his stark message. Taking as his starting point the betrayed promise of the Russian Revolution, Orwell lays out a vision that, in its bitter wisdom, gives us the clearest understanding we possess of the possible consequences of our social and political acts.

About the Author

George Orwell (Motihari, India, 1903-Londres, 1950), cuyo nombre real era Eric Blair, fue novelista, ensayista brillante y maestro de periodistas. Podria decirse que su breve vida resume los suenos y las pesadillas del mundo occidental en el siglo XX. Nacio en la India britanica en el seno de una familia de clase media, estudio con una beca en el exclusivo colegio de Eton, sirvio en la Policia Imperial en ultramar ("Los dias de Birmania," 1934), volvio a Europa, donde vivio a salto de mata ("Sin blanca en Paris y Londres," 1933), regreso a la Inglaterra rural y empezo alli el ejercicio de la docencia ("La hija del clerigo," 1935), escribio sobre la clase obrera inglesa y la explotacion ("Que no muera la aspidistra," 1936; "El camino a Wigan Pier," 1937), recogio su experiencia combatiendo el fascismo en la turbulenta Guerra Civil espanola ("Homenaje a Cataluna," 1938), empezo a vislumbrar en la convalecencia posterior el derrumbe del viejo mundo ("Subir a por aire," 1939), colaboro en la BBC durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, se consagro en el "Tribune" y el "Observer" como uno de los mejores prosistas en lengua inglesa (entre su vasta produccion ensayistica cabe destacar "El leon y el unicornio y otros ensayos," 1940), fabulo las perversiones del socialismo ("Rebelion en la granja," 1945) y llego a anticipar nuevos tipos de sociedad burocratica e hiperpolitica ("1984," 1949). A pesar de su temprana muerte, se le sigue considerando la conciencia de una generacion y una de las voces mas lucidas que se han alzado contra toda clase de totalitarismos."
