I. Subject The novel Animal Farm is about farm animals that go on strike. Old Major, the lead pig, calls a meeting about a dream he had. The owner of Manor Farm, Mr. Jones, was drunk and often abuses them. Old Major died three days after holding the meeting, leaving Napoleon and Snowball to struggle for control of the farm.
Napoleon became a very mean pig that he ended up lying to all the farm animals and saying one thing and then doing another thing. Napoleon mainly just be treated the animals and started treating them bad. He would treat them like slaves in other words. So ever since the animals started to take control of the farm and the animals they finished up changing everything. The animals even ended up changing the farms name from “Manor Farm” to “Animal Farm”.
Napoleon first begins by moving into the farmhouse where he begins spending, “all his time.” With the farmhouse the sleeping in beds comes into play. He then begins trade... ... middle of paper ... ... dogs to run Snowball out. After Snowball is run out of the farm Napoleon decides to actually build the windmill that he was originally opposed to. This example explicitly shows that Napoleon is power hungry and he has gotten what he wanted, absolute power. After a while “Animal Farm” begins to go down hill there is food shortages, hard labor, and death.
Many years later, the pigs invite the humans on their farm and they have a feast. As Clover was staring at the bunch she looked and looked and she couldn’t tell the difference between man and pigs (there is so much that is happening, I can’t explain it all in a one paragraph, Read the book). The characters that had a larger effect on the overall aspect of the book would be; Boxer, Squealer, Napoleon, and Snowball. Boxer is a horse, very dedicate in his cause in building the windmill. Which is ironic because he dies by over exertion in building the windmill.
For instance, the word "comrade" is used often. The pigs mostly use a Russian accent, but the other animals mainly use an American accent.Animal Farm is about a farm in England during the Russian revolution. The animals on Manor Farm are fed up with the way they are being treated. Inspired by a speech given to them by a late animal named Major, the animals revolt. The animals drive the owner off the farm and take over.
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).
The pigs shortly after that began taking all of the apples that were harvested and all of the cows’ milk for themselves. They start living in the farmer’s old house, which was disobeying the original rules, called “The Seven Commandments”, along with drinking alcohol, sleeping in beds, and wearing clothes. Napoleon also started trading with humans for food and alcohol. The pigs would have meetings and parties, at which they got drunk, with the humans to discuss their ideas and plans. The animals tried to make what Major envisioned a reality, but in the end they became just as evil and s... ... middle of paper ... ...the actual idea of socialism and the effects it has on society.
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
Old Major encourages the animals of the farm to revolt against Mr. Jones, the owner of the farm. Not long after, he dies, but the animals keep his ideas of Animalism (which is essentially Communism) alive and the pigs, who are the most clever animals on the farm, begin to plan a revolution. One day, the workers on the farm forget to feed the animals, and so some of the more powerful horses break down the door to the barn where the feed is stored, and the animals enjoy a feast. When Mr. Jones learns of this, however, he immediately orders all of the animals to be punished appropriately. As they are being whipped and beaten, the animals suddenly turn on the workers.
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.
