The novel Animal Farm by George Orwell was a very interesting, complex, and informing novel.

George Orwell's, Animal Farm, depicts how power can corrupt society. If one person receives too much power, one will most likely lead up to dictatorship. To exemplify this idea, Orwell uses a farm to represent a society and the animals inside to portray the people. Orwell's use of the pigs and animals are also an analogy that people sometimes act as 'mindless pigs';. Orwell makes the reader realize just how bad a society of dictatorship can really be.

Animal Farm by George Orwell Animal Farm portrays many facets of the Communist revolution in Russia; however the book and the movie are both set on a farm in England in the 1950‘s.

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.
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.
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.

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...
