  • ANIMAL FARM

    A revolution is brewing among the animals of Manor Farm and one fine day they overthrow the owner Mr. Jones. The farm is renamed Animal Farm: Having vanquished Man, animals are on their own and they adopt Seven Commandments of Animalism: 1. Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy. 2. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend. 3. animal shall wear clothes. 4. animal shall sleep in a bed. 5. animal shall drink alcohol. 6. animal shall kill any other animal. 7. All animals are equal. But then a controlling elite develops among animals and soon come the amendments; one by one; and the most important of them is all animals are equal – but some are more equal than others. It is the history of a revolution that went wrong, Orwell wrote describing his novel Animal Farm. Written allegorically to reflect upon the Russian Revolution up to Stalin era, Animal Farm is one of the finest novels ever written in English language.

  • ANIMAL FARM

    A farm is taken over by its overworked, mistreated animals. With flaming idealism and stirring slogans, they set out to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality. Thus the stage is set for one of the most telling satiric fables ever penned –a razor-edged fairy tale for grown-ups that records the evolution from revolution against tyranny to a totalitarianism just as terrible.When Animal Farm was first published, Stalinist Russia was seen as its target. Today it is devastatingly clear that wherever and whenever freedom is attacked, under whatever banner, the cutting clarity and savage comedy of George Orwell’s masterpiece have a meaning and message still ferociously fresh.

  • BURMESE DAYS

    Based on his experiences as a policeman in Burma, George Orwell’s first novel presents a devastating picture of British colonial rule

    Burmese Days describes corruption and imperial bigotry in a society where, ‘after all, natives were natives’. When Flory, a white timber merchant, befriends Indian Dr Veraswami, he defies this orthodoxy. The doctor is in danger: U Po Kyin, a corrupt magistrate, is plotting his downfall. The only thing that can save him is membership of the all-white Club, and Flory can help. Flory’s life is changed further by the arrival of beautiful Elizabeth Lackersteen from Paris, who offers an escape from loneliness and the ‘lie’ of colonial life.

    George Orwell’s first novel, inspired by his experiences in the Indian Imperial Police in Burma, Burmese Days includes a new introduction by Emma Larkin in Penguin Modern Classics.

  • A CLERGYMAN’S DAUGHTER

    Intimidated by her father, the rector of Knype Hill, Dorothy performs her submissive roles of dutiful daughter and bullied housekeeper. Her thoughts are taken up with the costumes she is making for the church school play, by the hopelessness of preaching to the poor and by debts she cannot pay in 1930s Depression England. Suddenly her routine shatters and Dorothy finds herself down and out in London. She is wearing silk stockings, has money in her pocket and cannot remember her name. Orwell leads us through a landscape of unemployment, poverty and hunger, where Dorothy’s faith is challenged by a social reality that changes her life.
