75 Years of Animal Farm

George Orwell's Animal Farm was first published on the 17th of August, in 1945. Celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, we do a 101 on the seminal allegorical novel, and explore why many are saying we’re still living in the world that inspired Animal Farm, after all these years.
