ANIMAL FARM by GEORGE ORWELL
Animal Farm was Orwell's first highly successful novel (the second being 1984). It was published on the heels of World War II, in England in 1945 and in the United States in 1946. Orwell personifies the animals in the tradition of allegory so that they symbolize real historical figures. Animal Farm is also a powerful satire. Orwell uses irony to undermine the tenets of totalitarianism, specifically that of Stalinism. Though he agreed with many Marxist principles, Orwell was unable to accept the communist interpretation of socialism because he saw many similarities between the communist governments and the previous czarist regimes in old Russia. Communism, he thought, was inherently hypocritical. One of the world's most read classics. Complete and unabridged text with introduction. Paperback: 160 pages ISBN-13: 9788176061537 Product Dimensions: 13.1 x 0.6 x 19.5 cm

WUTHERING HEIGHTS by Emily Brontë
Wuthering Heights is Emily Brontë’s singular work of fiction and is an important novel for an honest and accurate portrayal of life during an early era that provides a glimpse of history. The literary merit enables the text to rise above the story and rank as quality literature. The lyrical prose has a distinct structure and style. Contemporary readers can still relate to the feelings and emotions of the central characters. Apparently, Wuthering Heights is a love story. But, gradually, readers discover it as a symbolic and psychological novel. Wuthering Heights can not be classified as any particular type of fiction and that is the literary strength of the novel. Emily Brontë’s only novel has now overcome its initial chilly reception. It has become one of the widely read romantic and realistic story and is regarded as one of the most intense novels written in the English language.
