This is a remarkable revelation! George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” — a gloriously graphic satire on the inevitable political hypocrisy which occurs in communist/socialist settings (or virtually any situation where “equality” is claimed) — was rejected by publishers many times. Such rejection is always a problem when sending a magic manuscript to dull publishers with an agenda. Orwell had a remarkable way of communicating complex ideas in a manner that anyone can understand. Hardly surprising then that this allegorically lucid novel was rejected by such an uptight, obscurantist poet as T.S. Eliot! 😀 (It is also always encouraging for struggling authors to know that even brilliant writers receive numerous rejection slips for great novels from publishers!).
