Plot Several important events lead to the outcome of Animal Farm. In the end the pigs within the story have become a complete corrupt government and very human like. The long chain of events begins with Napoleon chasing off Snowball at the meeting that decides if the windmill is to be built. He “uttered a high pitched whimper” to call his police dogs, which drove Snowball straight off the farm. Napoleon then chose to build the windmill after all.
At the beginning, the farm animals are prosperous and self-reliant until the pigs’ actions reflect those of Mr. Jones, the farmer who brutally mistreated the animals. The story mirrors the events of the Russian Revolution and the rise of Joseph Stalin through the harshness of the pig Napoleon as leader of the farm animals. The animals put down a lot of effort into building the windmill which is the base of many repeatedly occurring actions. When the animals begin building, Boxer,a diligent horse, begins to show far more effort than the other animals. Boxer works hard during both construction times (the original windmill was later destroyed).
Mr. Jones tried several times to try and take back the farm. This was where the animals tried their best to keep it under control. Further on in the story you see how the pigs rule over the farm and the animals, and take all the privileges for themselves, whilst leaving the rest of the animals to work restless hours and feed on rations. They soon realize that life on animal farm is just as worse, if not more worse that when the farm was ... ... middle of paper ... ...t in the story. In the story it is clear that the writer has created a message in the story.
Jones and his men came out to fight them off, but the animals were to strong for them. The animals drove them out of the farm and declared what used to be called “The Manor Farm” into what they called “Animal Farm.” Snowball took over as their new leader and served them good especially when Jones came back with some men and guns and tried to take back his farm and Snowball took control and stopped Jones from winning the fight. Then Snowball gets an idea that they should build a windmill that symbolizes their farm and could be used for hay storage. Napoleon, another pig who wanted to take rule, said that was a stupid idea and Napoleon went on to plant fake evidence that Snowball
One day, the Old Major who is the wisest pig, tells the rest of the animals about a dream he has been having to get rid of their human master and run the farm on their own. After Old Major's death, two new leaders of the farm come into power and run Mr. Jones off of the farm which leaves the animals to fend for themselves and to take care of the farm by using a group effort. For a while, the animals work as hard as they possibly can to keep the farm in pristine condition and keep every animal fed with abundant amounts of food. The animals truly did keep much better care of the farm than Mr. Jones ever had. Shortly after, Napoleon becomes so selfish because of his power over the other animals on the farm, that he blocks Snowball from all of his power which then turns the other animals against him.
Then they start their own farm with their own rules and commandments. Originally the two people in charge of the "Animal Farm", which they titled it, were Napoleon and Snowball. Napoleon was really greedy and wanted all the power to be his, so he got the animals to turn on Snowball and make him leave the farm. After Napoleon took over the pigs started disobeying the commandments that the pigs, as well as all the other animals, organized and wrote down at the beginning of their take over. Soon the pigs have disobeyed, and/or changed every law there was from the beginning, and the pigs start acting and looking like humans.
However, when Napoleon hears Snowball’s plans for power on the farm, he decides to have his now grown puppies chase Snowball off the farm. After Sno... ... middle of paper ... ...s off the farm, used euphemisms to make what the pigs where doing seem like it wasn’t such a bad thing. Even when he was caught In the act of changing the farm rules, he got away for it because of his superior way of persuasion. Just like the pigs in animal farm using persuasion, and manipulation, people also use these tricks to manipulate others in real life. Using “double speak” techniques can get you ahead, but at the cost of others (Lutz 27).
Major was the initial one to start the movement and the other two were the main leaders that carried it on after he passed away. When the animals became tired of Mr. Jones’s harsh and intense labor conditions, they plan to dethrone him by chasing him out of his farm. After the successful rebellion, the animals set up their own rules and regulations to follow. The pigs taught themselves how to read and write and reworked Major’s system into an elaborate strategy called Animalism. They formed their own new and improved living environment to harvest and do their chores.
He discussed the changes recently made on the farm the biggest being the return to the name Manor Farm. He and the farmer began arguing and the animals realized that they cannot distinguish between the humans and the pigs. II. Theme The theme of Animal Farm is the dangers of a naïve working class. Throughout the novel Napoleon breaks the seven commandments.
George Orwell’s Animal Farm is an allegory about the state of the Soviet Union leading up to and during World War II. George Orwell’s novel is a scathing critique of the dystopian distortion of the socialist ideal. This book was written during Stalin’s rise to power and the growing influence of communism on the world. The leaders of the Soviet Union (Stalin, Trotsky) are depicted as animals on a farm in Britain. George Orwell’s classic novel is a study into the corruption of socialist ideals and the manipulation of the masses by the elite.
