About the course

Students will be reading assigned chapters each week and completing work together in class. We will be tackling the issues raised in George Orwell's Animal Farm with Progeny Press' Christian literature study guides.

In Animal Farm, mistreated animals take over their farm to create a paradise of justice and equality . . . but vulnerability, power, and corruption can arise in even the most well-intentioned society. A razor-edged adult fairy tale that records the transition from revolt to tyranny to a totalitarian society with faults of its own.
