    Fact File

    Orwell wrote Animal Farm to reflect his views on the Russian Revolution and Stalin in particular. Those views were heavily influenced by his experience in the Spanish Civil War where he had been forced to flee from Russian backed communist purges. Getting the work published proved difficult as Russia was a wartime ally and many thinkers still saw Stalin in a positive light.
