Overview

Un rotundo alegato a favor de la libertad y en contra el totalitarismo.

Esta sátira de la Revolución Rusa y el triunfo del estalinismo, escrita en 1945, se ha convertido por derecho propio en un hito de la cultura contemporánea y en uno de los libros más mordaces de todos los tiempos. Ante el auge de los animales de la Granja Solariega, pronto detectamos las semillas del totalitarismo en una organización aparentemente ideal; y en nuestros líderes más carismáticos, la sombra de los opresores más crueles.

«Una obra literaria perfecta.» T. S. Eliot

Meet the Author

George Orwell (Motihari, India, 1903-Londres, 1950), cuyo nombre real era Eric Blair, fue novelista, ensayista brillante y maestro de periodistas. Podría decirse que su breve vida resume los sueños y las pesadillas del mundo occidental en el siglo XX. Nació en la India británica en el seno de una familia de clase media, estudió con una beca en el exclusivo colegio de Eton, sirvió en la Policía Imperial en ultramar (Los días de Birmania, 1934), volvió a Europa, donde vivió a salto de mata (Sin blanca en París y Londres, 1933), regresó a la Inglaterra rural y empezó allí el ejercicio de la docencia (La hija del clérigo, 1935), escribió sobre la clase obrera inglesa y la explotación (Que no muera la aspidistra, 1936; El camino a Wigan Pier, 1937), recogió su experiencia combatiendo el fascismo en la turbulenta Guerra Civil española (Homenaje a Cataluña, 1938), empezó a vislumbrar en la convalecencia posterior el derrumbe del viejo mundo (Subir a por aire, 1939), colaboró en la BBC durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, se consagró en el Tribune y el Observer como uno de los mejores prosistas en lengua inglesa (entre su vasta producción ensayística cabe destacar El león y el unicornio y otros ensayos, 1940), fabuló las perversiones del socialismo (Rebelión en la granja, 1945) y llegó a anticipar nuevos tipos de sociedad burocrática e hiperpolítica (1984, 1949). A pesar de su temprana muerte, se le sigue considerando la conciencia de una generación y una de las voces más lúcidas que se han alzado contra toda clase de totalitarismos.

    Tan similar a mi pais

    Ha sido una gran experiencia haber leido este libro pues a pesar que fue escrito antes de que el regimen de Fidel Castro en Cuba tomara el poder, el libro describe con exactitud lo que acontece en la Cuba castrista. Este libro es una obra maestra.

    When I first heard of The Animal Farm, it was a banned book. My father borrowed it secretly from a friend, and I lent it to a friend in similar fashion. I didn’t read it until many years later when living in the U.S. I could freely buy a copy and I suddenly understood why the book was banned. I’ve read The Animal Farm again and again over the years and I find it poignant, bittersweet, right on target and just plain genius. I wish I could write that way!




    At first glance The Animal Farm is just a fable describing how “absolute power corrupts absolutely”, but it’s so much more. The Animal Farm is a political satire that not only describes a specific political system, in this case socialism or communism, but can be extended to totalitarianism since the salient features of the former are definitely present in the latter regardless of the side of the spectrum the government is from.




    I find The Animal Farm genius because it starts with a dream, always a dream, that devolves into corruption and power struggles at the top, the exploitation of the masses, and finally the vitriolic disappointment and the realization that you spent your life fighting for a utopia, and describing that process in the way George Orwell did in 1945, which is the date of the first edition of The Animal Farm is simply transcendent; that’s being a visionary because the dream finally exploded forty four years later.




    For people who live in democratic countries The Animal Farm is a cautionary tale whereas for those who live under oppression it is their very existence become a satire.
