Animal Farm by George Orwell Is Animal Farm by George Orwell merely a political argument or does it manage to entertain the reader as a story in itself In this Personal Study I shall be writing about how Animal Farm by George Orwell entertained me as a novel while putting over a political argument in the process. The opening chapter introduces the theme of revolution that dominates the whole novel, and aswell as doing that it also introduces the farm animals. In Chapter 1 Old Major is the central figure, he gets all the other animals into the barn one night and talks about a revolution, which gets the smartest animals - the pigs, thinking about what could happen. One way in which Orwell makes this story enjoyable in its own right is how he when describing the farm animals, actually describes them in the way of humans, by juxtaposition the "animalness" of the farm animals with traditionally human characteristics.
Animal Farm begins as a vision of Utopia, perfect society but ends as a nightmare who is to blame for the betrayal of revolution? Animalism was, in its truest sense, a dream conjured by Old Major. He could never achieve his vision of Utopia. Throughout the satire, the pigs visibly taint Old Major's concept of equality. It is obvious to the readers from the very beginning, that the pigs would become corrupt.
Have you ever thought you could trust someone with a very touchy subject, but they end up breaking your trust? This shows that you have to be careful who you are loyal to and where your trust lies. This theme is shown in great detail throughout the book Animal Farm, by George Orwell. Animal Farm, a fable about communism, tells the tale of some mistreated farm animals that revolt against their master, Mr. Jones, and take over the farm. Squealer, a persuasive pig, Napoleon’s (the pig behind everything corrupt on the farm) right hand “pig”, with his ability to bend the truth and convince the animals of the fact that many crimes truly committed were “false and untrue”, shows that it is important to remember to put your faith and trust in the right people. Evidence of Squealers lies and untrustworthiness will be shown in later paragraphs.
