Otázka: Animal Farm
George Orwell (whose real name was Eric Blair) was born in India in 1903, and he died in London 1950. Orwell write this book from November 1943 to February 1944. It‘s a satiricical allegory about totalitarianism, especially the book reflects the Stalin era in Soviet Union.
This book is about a Farm where the animals make a revolution and chase away the farmowner with his family. For a while everything works great and everybody is happy. But the pigs, who make the organization part on the farm, get more and more like humans. They even change ‘the seven rules of Animalism’ one by one and in the end the other animals can’t divide them from humans. Because pigs started even play cards with people and drinking. Pigs does look like a people.
The most important charakter is the pig Napoleon. He always tries to make everything better just for himself. He rarely works and even when he does it is only for his own advantage. Another fascinating character is the Snowball, Napoleon’s rival and original head of the farm after Jones’ overthrow. And Boxer the cart-horse,he is the type of guy who is‘t really intelligent.For example his motto was ‘Napoleon‘s always right’. For him that seems to be enough to solve all the problems.
For me is an interesting irony that in communist Czechoslovakia was on the list of banned authors. To sum up, this book was dire prediction communist regime. This book i would recommend to everyone.
