FCE I: Animal farm

Posted on mayo 24, 2018

“Students of FCE I have started reading Animal Farm, the most famous by far of all twentieth-century political allegories.

Its account of a group of barnyard animals who revolt against their vicious human master, only to submit to a tyranny erected by their own kind, can fairly be said to have become a universal drama.

In animal farm George Orwell’s spare prose and logic of dark comedy brilliantly highlight a stark message.

Taking as his starting point the betrayed promise of the Russian Revolution, Orwell lays out a vision that, in its bitter wisdom, gives us the clearest understanding we possess of the possible consequences of our social and political acts.”
