‘It needs more public-spirited pigs’: TS Eliot’s rejection of Orwell’s Animal Farm

The letter in which TS Eliot rejects George Orwell’s allegory Animal Farm because “we have no conviction … that this is the right point of view from which to criticise the political situation” has been published online for the first time by the British Library, alongside a wealth of other material from 20th-century writers.
