rereading animal farm

Last night, looking at my bookshelf, I noticed my copy of Animal Farm and decided to re-read it. By the time I was finishing the first chapter, the entirety of the rest of the book flooded back into my memory, and I felt like weeping for the tragedy I knew was coming, eventually.

Animal Farm and 1984 remain two of my favorite books for rereading.

Do not forget Old Major’s teaching:

All the habits of Man are evil. And, above all, no animal must ever tyrannise over his own kind. Weak or strong, clever or simple, we are all brothers. No animal must ever kill any other animal. All animals are equal.
