Animal Farm was written by George Orwell and published in 1946. This story is about the Manor Farm in England, around the time of the Russian revolution. The animals on this farm started their own revolution because they were so irritated with the way they were being treated.
Animal Farm By George Orwell Animal Farm is a story of how the animals revolted because of the way they were treated by Mr. Jones, the farmer. They felt that the farmers made all the profit, reaped all the rewards but didn't do any of the work. So they formed a government called Animalism. In Animalism, there are no owners, no rich, but no poor, workers got a better life, and all animals are equal. They had even established laws called the Seven Commandments, which were intended to give basic rights to animals and protect them from oppression.
Before the death of Old Major the animals are inspired to rebel against the humans. They join together as a strong team to eventually, in chapter two, drive Mr. Jones from the farm. The Seven Commandments are soon developed with all the animals contented as equals.
Animal farm is a book about the struggle to be an animal. It shows how animals do not like the way they are treated by being used to do the humans work for them. The animals are inspired by Old Major who always wanted to overthrow the humans but never saw to it. Animal farm descends into a totalitarianism like government because of greed, power hungry animals, and people not against speaking Napoleon.
George Orwell’s Animal Farm, is a satirical novel that follows the causes, effects, and outcomes of a revolution. The Manor Farm is overtaken by the fatigued and dissatisfied animals that work tirelessly for Mr. Jones, the owner of the farm. The revolution is inspired by Major, the prize boar on the farm, but is attained by Snoball and Napoleon, two other boars. Squealer, a younger pig, acts as a persuasive communicator between the pigs and the other animals. The revolution is sparked by the desire to live on equal and just terms. The animals on the farm receive little to no education which affects their position in the revolution. The animals’ ignorance plays a major role in both political and social oppression because of their inability to
All of the characters in Animal farm have counterparts in real life. This book was based on the Russian Revolution, and all the important populace of the revolution are symbolized. Some of the animals represent individuals in the Russian Revolution, and some types of animals represent different types of Russian citizens. The book carries out much like the actual revolution. It starts out with hopes of an empire where all are equal and the unfair unjust leader is thrown out. Then it moves on to where some individuals begin to take more power than is rightfully theirs. At the end the rulers have completely taken over and the kingdom is as it was under the original rulers. I will compare the animals from top of the social class to the bottom. At the top were the pigs. Each pig represented someone different in the revolution. Old Major is compared to Lenin. He was an ideologist who dreamed up a wonderful government where all the animals were equal and the humans, or the czars, were pushed out. Unfortunately his dream would never materialize. Then we are left with his predecessors. The first is Snowball. Snowball believed one hundred percent in Old Majors ideals. He wanted all the things Old Major wanted, such as the welfare of the animals. In the Russian Revolution his counterpart would be Trotsky. Trotsky believed and wanted the same things as Lenin, and wanted to continue what Lenin had started. Then comes Napoleon. Napoleon was selfish and greedy. He did not want to share the power or the decision making with any other individual. This was the same for Stalin. At first Napoleon and Snowball shared the decision making and had debates about what course of action they would take. This worked for awhile. Then Napoleon grew weary of long debates, and he thought he could make the decision by himself. He then forced Snowball out of the farm and started to spread lies about Snowball to get the entire farm against him. Stalin did the same thing against Trotsky and forced Trotsky into hiding into Mexico, where he was eventually assassinated. Both Stalin and Napoleon ruined any hopes of equal and fare government and instead set up dictatorships. Then comes the final important pig, Squealer. Squealer did not make the decisions in the government but acted more like the controlled media as in the Russian government.
Old Major (a boar) gathers the animals of the manor farm together for a meeting in the barn. He tells all of them of the dream he had. That all animals lived together in a community with no humans to take control of them. He tells them that they must work towards this paradise and teaches them a song called "Beasts of England" in which his dram was described. When he dies, (3 days later), the two younger pigs, Snowball and Napoleon, make his principles into a philosophy called animalism. One night the animals manage to defeat Mr. Jones (the farm owner) in a battle and ran him off the farm.
Animal Farm by George Orwell The story of Animal Farm takes place in a farmhouse, somewhere in England. The farm animals are property of the "cruel" and "evil" farmer Mr. Jones. Old Major, a wise pig, and one of the oldest animals on the farm, calls for a secret meeting to take place later at night. At the meeting, Old Major tells the animals about a dream he recently had. In his dream, he sees a revolution taking place against Mr. Jones, and the freedom of all animals.
Manor Animal Farm The agenda for the animals in the movie Manor Animals Farm was to be free and to role themselves. They set a list of goal or rules that every animal had to follow. The leader pig got all the animals excited and committed in the goals that were set. The animals called a meeting so that the rules could be made and made official.
In chapter four, it begins by the word of the rebellion spreading to the neighboring farms, so the other farmers try to stop this rebellion before it happens by spreading rumors that the animals at Animal Farm are starving. The animals of the other farms are not fazed by this, they start to not follow the rules and disobey their owners in an attempt to take back his farm, Mr. Jones bands together with other farmers and they head to Animal Farm. Snowball has already taught the animals to fight in war and they have some organized tactics to help. Mr. Jones kills one sheep, but is not successful in taking back his farm, many of the men are hurt in the attempt. Snowball is injured by Mr. Jones gun, but is still alive, he is proud of all of the animals but finds Mollie cowering in her stall. In chapter five, I start to see the political side that is side to accompany this book, this is because it is like Snowball and Napoleon are running as candidates and trying to win the vote of the other animals. They both can’t agree on anything at this point, the main points that they talk about are Snowball wants to build a windmill to produce energy and Napoleon wants to focus on food production, the animals are divided about which one they want to lead them. When Snowball finally finishes his proposal he shows it to the other animals and wins their vote, but Napoleon has other plans, he brings in nine enormous dogs to chase Snowball off, he escapes through a hedge. Napoleon is now the leader of the farm and starts to propose his own ideas, but does reveal that he wants the windmill to be built, he tells the animals that Snowball stole the idea from him. Squealer is now the person that relays information from Napoleon to the other ani...
