Appearing on Radio 4’s Beyond Belief, Seaton discussed the relevance of Animal Farm in modern times, stating that it is a book that “offeres a contemporary education as you read it, in how real resentments, decency and idealism can be manipulated – and in how to resist fashion however attractive”. Seaton also shared these views with NPR, exploring the background to Animal Farm and the importance of recognising the anniversary.
