George Orwell’s Animal Farm (Bloom’s Modern Critical Interpretations)
Animal Farm (another name: The Story of the Farm , the original English name for Animal Farm ) is a satirical novel criticizing Stalin’s Soviet Union by British-born writer George Orwell (1903-1950 ).
The work was published in England on August 17, 1945 and one year later in the United States. George Orwell previously had 9 books published with a total of 195,500 copies in both the UK and the US. After World War II the number of prints was limited due to a shortage of paper. However, by the time Orwell died in January 1950, 25,500 Animal Farms had been printed in England and 590,000 had been printed in the United States. That speaks of the great and immediate success of the work.
In the work, George Orwell used the image of the cattle on the farm to express his predictions of a Socialist State. The work was completed in 1945, at which time the West did not have sufficient information about these states, such as the Soviet Union, and the Socialist ideology at its most prosperous period had yet to show its weaknesses. his bad.
