They begin to build a utopian society, with Seven Commandments designed to create opportunity and equality for all. But when Napoleon and his pigs take power, life becomes harsher and more complicated for the animals. Their Seven Commandments seem to shift over time, and though once they agreed "All animals are equal," now they are told "All animals are equal. But some are more equal than others." The idealistic early days of Animal Farm are gone, and things have gone terribly wrong." Setting: Allegory. (from Progeny Press)
