動物莊園(Animal Farm)簡介:

Since its publication in 1946, George Orwell's fable of a workers' revolution gone wrong has rivaled Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea as the Shortest Serious Novel It's OK to Write a Book Report About. (The latter is three pages longer and less fun to read.) Fueled by Orwell's intense disillusionment with Soviet Communism, Animal Farm is a nearly perfect piece of writing, both an engaging story and an allegory that actually works. When the downtrodden beasts of Manor Farm oust their drunken human master and take over management of the land, all are awash in collectivist zeal. Everyone willingly works overtime, productivity soars, and for one brief, glorious season, every belly is full. The animals' Seven Commandment credo is painted in big white letters on the barn. All animals are equal. No animal shall drink alcohol, wear clothes, sleep in a bed, or kill a fellow four-footed creature. Those that go upon four legs or wings are friends and the two-legged are, by definition, the enemy. Too soon, however, the pigs, who have styled themselves leaders by virtue of their intelligence, succumb to the temptations of privilege and power. "We pigs are brainworkers. The whole management and organisation of the farm depend on us. Day and night, we are watching over your welfare. It is for your sake that we drink that milk and eat those apples." While this swinish brotherhood sells out the revolution, cynically editing the Seven Commandments to excuse their violence and greed, the common animals are once again left hungry and exhausted, no better off than in the days when humans ran the farm. Satire Animal Farm may be, but it's a stony reader who remains unmoved when the stalwart workhorse, Boxer, having given his all to his comrades, is sold to the glue factory to buy booze for the pigs. Orwell's view of Communism is bleak indeed, but given the history of the Russian people since 1917, his pessimism has an air of prophecy.

  《動物莊園》(Animal Farm)亦譯作《動物農場》、《動物農莊》。用動物對人類抗爭后自建家園來再現前蘇聯的整個歷史情形,奧威爾的《動物莊園》被公認為二十世紀最杰出的政治寓言。《動物莊園》被譯成二十多種文字在全世界流傳,其中的有些語言還變成了人們的口頭禪,和《1984》并稱為喬治・奧威爾最重要的代表作。此版本收有小說的英文原文。
  本書以隱喻的形式寫革命的發生以及革命的背叛,自然還有革命的殘酷:一個農莊的動物不堪主人的壓迫,在豬的帶領下起來反抗,趕走了農莊主;它們建立起一個自己管理自已的家園,奉行“所有動物一律平等”的原則;兩只領頭的豬為了權力而互相傾軋,勝利者一方宣布另一方是叛徒、內奸;豬們逐漸侵占了其他動物的勞動成果,成為新的特權階級;動物們稍有不滿,便招致血腥的清洗;統治者需要迫使豬與人結成同盟,建立起獨裁專制;農莊的理想被修正為“有的動物較之其他動物更為平等”,動物們又回復到從前的悲慘狀況。明眼的讀者自可看出,此書不屬于人們所熟悉的那種蘊含教訓的傳統寓言,而是對現代政治神話的一種寓言式解構。
