A Revolução dos Bichos

A Revolução dos Bichos

Verdadeiro clássico moderno, concebido por um dos mais influentes escritores do século 20, "A Revolução dos Bichos" é uma fábula sobre o poder. Narra a insurreição dos animais de uma granja contra seus donos. Progressivamente, porém, a revolução degenera numa tirania ainda mais opressiva que a dos humanos
Escrita em plena Segunda Guerra Mundial e publicada em 1945 depois de ter sido rejeitada por várias editoras, essa pequena narrativa causou desconforto ao satirizar ferozmente a ditadura stalinista numa época em que os soviéticos ainda eram aliados do Ocidente na luta contra o eixo nazifascista.

De fato, são claras as referências: o despótico Napoleão seria Stálin, o banido Bola-de-Neve seria Trotsky, e os eventos políticos - expurgos, instituição de um estado policial, deturpação tendenciosa da História - mimetizam os que estavam em curso na União Soviética.

Com o acirramento da Guerra Fria, as mesmas razões que causaram constrangimento na época de sua publicação levaram A Revolução Dos Bichos a ser amplamente usada pelo Ocidente nas décadas seguintes como arma ideológica contra o comunismo. O próprio Orwell, adepto do socialismo e inimigo de qualquer forma de manipulação política, sentiu-se incomodado com a utilização de sua fábula como panfleto.
