When the animals at Manor Farm revolt against their master, Mr. Jones, their goal is to take over the farm and establish an ideal community based on hard work, honesty, and the equality of all animals. Guided by the memory of Old Major's utopian vision and the seven commandments, Animal Farm, as the animals have renamed it, briefly fulfills the ideal. Memories are short, however, and soon--through manipulation and aggression by those who assume power--the farm's founding principles are slowly eroded and abloished

A clergyman's daughter by George Orwell( Book )
142 editions published between 1935 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,052 libraries worldwide
From the book's jacket insert: George Orwell's third novel, which has been out of print in this country since its original publication in the thirties, is vintage Orwell in its theme, its spirit, and its style. Dorothy Hare is the perfect daughter of a clergyman. She spends here time in good works, She cultivates good thoughts and pricks her arm with a pin when a bad one arises. And she does her best to bridge the gap between her father's fanciful view of his position in the world and such realities as the butcher's bill. But even Dorothy's strength has its limits, and one night as she works feverishly to finish the costumes for the church-school play, she blacks out. She comes to on a London street, clad in a sleazy dress and unaware of her identity. She is fair game for the tough but friendly Nobby and his cockney pals, who befriend her for the half crown in her pocket. There follows a series of adventures: "pickin' 'ops" in Kent; a night with the down-and-outers in Trafalgar Square-a scene that Richard H. Rovere has said: "may well be the finest thing in all of Orwell's fiction"; teaching in a grubby day school for girls-a whirl of episodes spun out with all the verve and vividness, the biting humor, and the complete authority that Orwell was able to command
Animal farm ; 1984 by George Orwell( Book )
52 editions published between 1949 and 2013 in 14 languages and held by 1,925 libraries worldwide
All animals are equals but some animals are more equal than others. George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution is the account of the bold struggle, initiated by the animals, that transforms Mr. Jones's Manor Farm into Animal Farm, a wholly democratic society built on the credo that all animals are created equal. Out of their cleverness, the pigs Napoleon, Squealer, and Snowball emerge as leaders of the new community in a subtle evolution that proves disastrous. The climax is the brutal betrayal of the faithful horse Boxer, when totalitarian rule is re-established with the bloodstained postscript to the founding slogan: but some animals are more equal than others. War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. In 1984, London is a grim city where Big Brother is always watching you and the thought police can practically read your mind. Winston is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called the Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be. The two novels that you now hold in your hands have become modern classics, taught in many schools as examples of moral weight and political prescience, read for pleasure, excitement and instruction; a wise, compassionate, and illuminating fable. The New York Times: absolutely first-rate, comparable to Voltaire and Swift. There are no replacements for a George Orwell, just as there are no replacements for a Bernard Shaw or a Mark Twain. He pricked, provoked and badgered lazy minds, delighted those who enjoyed watching an original intelligence at work. Time: 1984 is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present.

15 editions published between 1963 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,185 libraries worldwide
Among the seminal texts of the 20th century, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a rare work that grows more haunting as its futuristic purgatory becomes more real. Published in 1949, the book offers political satirist George Orwell's nightmare vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor stiff's attempt to find individuality. The brilliance of the novel is Orwell's prescience of modern life--the ubiquity of television, the distortion of the language--and his ability to construct such a thorough version of hell. Required reading for students since it was published, it ranks among the most terrifying novels ever written.
