    Why not also consider other novels where revolution is a key element For instance, Les Miserables, A Tale of Two Cities, and Barnaby Rudge?

    Have to say I don't like the idea myself. Animal Farm was clearly related to the events of the Russian Revolution. It would be difficult to make the characters and events fit those of the Arab Spring. When Animal Farm was written, the Russian Revolution was twenty years in the past. The idealism of the original revolutionaries had slowly been betrayed. The Arab Spring is only several years old. It has gone pretty wrong, but there was no slow dissolution of the original ideals as in Animal Farm. The revolutionaries from the Russian Revolution had a certain ideology. Communism had been brewing since the time of Marx and Engels. I did not get the impression the Arab Spring was ideologically driven. It was more a case of one sudden and popular uprising against a despised tyrant inspiring another.

    There are some parallels between the situation in Syria and George Orwell's Homage to Catalonia, but then there would be parallels between the Spanish Civil War and any proxy war. Homage to Catalonia is reportage rather than a novel.
    According to Aldous Huxley, D.H. Lawrence once said that Balzac was 'a gigantic dwarf', and in a sense the same is true of Dickens.
    Charles Dickens, by George Orwell
