Have you ever blatantly disobeyed authority? Ever wished you could create new rules and regulations? You may not have realized it, but what you wanted to do was REVOLT. This is what George Orwell's novel Animal Farm is all about. The story is an allegory, a story that uses fictional characters and events to illustrate a factual situation or particular idea. Each character and event in the story represents a person or event in the Russian Revolution of 1917!
