George Orwell has affected the world’s literature, philosophy, and vocabulary on a profound level, and the two works largely responsible for creating that impact are included within this volume. Animal Farm and 1984, each brilliant narratives and allegories in their own right, share a genius in depicting the dystopia at the root of our prevailing governing structures, and expose them for the power-hungry, manipulative, totalitarian regimes they are. Whether it’s by way of satire, or direct, pointed nightmares, the stories remain as unfortunately relevant today as they were when they were first published.
