This study aims at focusing on one of the most significant aspects in literature, in which the allegorical and satirical significance of 'Animal Farm' and 'Nineteen Eighty Four' by George Orwell is highlighted. Through 'Animal Farm' and 'Nineteen Eighty Four' Orwell indirectly attacks on the Russian communism, Orwell combines political purpose with artistic one to voice his pessimistic belief. Orwell used satire to give more effect and understanding to his two novels. Satire in literature constitutes one of the effective literary techniques authors use in their stories to attack a person, an idea or behavior that they think bad or foolish. A writer in satire uses fictional character, which stands for real people to expose and condemn their corruption. The researcher follows the descriptive analytic method. Animal Farm is outwardly an animal story, but inwardly it is an allegory, a satire about Russian revolution of
1917 with false qualities of class struggle. To some extent, Nineteen Eighty Four also focuses on the concepts of free enterprise and individual freedom which do not actually exist. There only remains a world of hatred. Isolation, and fear as superpowers. Eurasia and Eastasia are two superpowers and Oceania, the third one, is always at war with one of them. By using political satire in the two novels, the author creates a prefect and interesting atmosphere that affects advancing the plot in order to give a clear understanding and enhancing its structure. In order to link the research questions and the findings, a detailed explanation on the concept of satire has been presented as an interesting literary technique otherwise readers would not find a relationship between the two works. Finally, Orwell actually succeeds in encoding his massage in the form a satire and thus readers interact with him. The study is ended with some recommendations and suggestions for further studies.
