Animal Farm

Animal Farm

by George Orwell

Analysis: What’s Up With the Title?

You've got a farm. You've got some animals on it. Sounds reasonable to us.

Oh, okay, that's not all. The farm starts off as "Manor Farm," switches to "Animal Farm," and then makes a spectacular return to Manor Farm. So, what's in a name? "Animal Farm" becomes a symbol for the animals' idealistic dreams. So you can guess what it means when the name goes away.
