One of the major characters in the novel, Animal Farm, is Nepoleon. Napoleon, after driving Snowball, another pig who was trying to take over the farm, off the farm, took over. Nepoleon says one thing, and does the other, takes otherpeoples ideas, and he is the biggest liar on the farm. Nepoleon took the freedom of the animals, that they had gained from the revolution, and twisted it so that now instead of being enslaved by the farmer, they were enslavedby him.In the novel, Animal Farm, the animals speak with a Russian accent. For instance, the word "comrade" is used often.
The two main leader pigs, Napoleon and Snowball both honor Major’s beliefs but want to achieve the goals in different ways. Napoleon focuses on the advantages he can gain for himself; Snowball wants to help all the animals of the farm. These different paths of power start to cause division on the farm. In Chapter 5, Snowball finally gives up and runs away from the farm, leaving Napoleon the leader and motivator of the newly named Animal Farm. He declares that only the pigs have the power to make decisions for the farm and that all the other animals will obey them.
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.
He talks to them about their situation at the farm and the problems they have to endure. He leads them to believe that their biggest problem is “the man”, and how “the man” uses them to satisfy his own needs without giving a thought to theirs. The animals begin to make plans to revolt against “the man” and take control of their own lives. A few days after the meeting though, Old Major dies. This is the beginning of a whole new set of problems for the animals when two other pigs, Snowball and Napoleon, take charge of the revolt against man.
The humans tried to take back Animal Farm, but they fail. After the battle Napoleon and Snowball continued to struggle for power. During a meeting at which the animals are to vote on a plan for a wind mill, Napoleon calls for his attack dogs and banished Snowball. Napoleon disbanded the meetings and started spreading propaganda that he is the cleverest animal therefore he should make decisions. He began to make contact with the human world which disturbed the other animals.
Now at this point Mollie runs away and Snowball begins his plans for a windmill. When Snowball’s plans are finished, Napoleon’s dog’s start to chase him off the farm. The farm just lost the best leader they could have had. They loose their chance to give input on what direction the farm should go, and Napoleon begings blaming Snowball for all the things that he did not do. Now Napoleon sets the animals to work on Sundays again and acquires Mr. Whymper as the farm’s broker.
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. Napoleon then uses Boxer, an intelligent horse to persuade t... ... middle of paper ... ...n two legs. In the beginning of the story they were convinced to never walk on two feet because that was how their enemies walked. 9 IX. Genre The main genre of Animal Farm is political.
After this a pig named, Napoleon, and a pig named Snowball, fought to have control over the farm. However Napoleon succeeded and eventually drove Snowball off the farm. Napoleon then begins his reign and begins to manipulate and take over with his comrade, Squealer. The pigs soon become more like the humans, with no difference to tell them apart. Mr. Jones tried several times to try and take back the farm.
The rules of the farm start to get changed and the animals start to notice, but when Squealer, a third pig on the farm persuades them with different forms of “double speak”, the animals aren’t sure about what they remember and comply with the changed rules (Lutz 25). The two lead pigs, Snowball and Napoleon, fight for dominance over the farm and try to undermine each other at every turn. When this occurs, the pigs develop a prowess over the other animals and start using items and doing things that they began at the beginning of the rebellion. Later on, Snowball proposes that the farm animals build a windmill so that, in the future, they can have power. 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.
When this happens, they began to take advantage of the entire society of animals. The pigs of the story sacrifice the good of the whole just for the benefit and pleasure of their selves. To begin with, the story starts when the animals in Manor Farm stage a rebellion against the humans after a rousing speech from Major, a very respected boar in the farm. They chase their human master, Mr. Jones, away and begin to run the farm themselves. At first, all goes well.
