Eric Arthur Blair (1903 – 1950), better known by his pen name George ORWELL, was an English novelist, essayist, journalist and critic whose work is marked by lucid prose, awareness of social injustice, opposition to totalitarianism and outspoken support of democratic socialism.
Orwell wrote literary criticism, poetry, fiction and polemical journalism. He is best known for the allegorical novella ANIMAL FARM (1945) and the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949). In 2008, The Times ranked him second on a list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945."
Ralph Steadman (1936) is a Welsh illustrator best known for his collaboration with the American writer Hunter S. Thompson, his close friend, on Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas & other works. His distinctive grotesque-yet-humorous style perfectly fits Animal Farm, as it has his other illustrated works such as Sigmund Freud, Paranoids, Between the Eyes, and The Big I Am.--Wikipedia
