Animal Farm

By Megan Thomas

It’s likely, because it seems like no matter where you’re from or whether you try avoid it, you either have by choice or your school made you. And for good reason, I’d argue.

A painfully simple yet beautifully effective analogy for the failure of Soviet Russia, but also on an extended scale, of a world navigated through cruelty and the theoretical notion of freedom. 

A novella that shows us through the eyes of farm animals who overturn their farmer what it means to be human, and to be corrupted by greed and power. George Orwell shows just how simple political understanding can be when necessary.
