This allows him to run the farm in his own way and gives him a more comfortable life than the other animals. These puppies become the forefront of his campaign of fear as he uses them to gain power by eliminating his nemesis, Snowball “They dashed straight for Snowball...he slipped through a hole in the hedge and was seen no more” (Orwell 28). Napoleon lies to all the animals that Snowball destroy the windmill but he was the real one who did it and he makes the dogs to chase Snowball always. It is just like Stalin did to his partner Trotsky and use his power to killed the Trotsky it is just like Napoleon did to
Napoleon's sense of timing is keen and this is very useful is his quest for more power. At just the right time he implies that Snowball's teachings are not beneficial to the other animals. Then the time comes when Napoleon has to carry out the rest of his plan, getting rid of Snowball. But by the time the animals realize what is going on Napoleon has taken control and is ready for any objections. Napoleon eventually gains total power and symbolizes a despotic ruler.
Orwell deals with the problem of rhetoric in ’Animal Farm’ by demonstrating how language can cause corruption. There are many characters in his book ‘Animal Farm’ that use rhetoric to convince and manipulate, however, the most talented persuasive speaker is Squealer. Squealer’s ability to use rhetoric is unrivalled, this is the reason Napoleon rises to power. Squealer uses the power in language to distort the truth in his speeches. When Napoleon wanted a problem fixed he would simply ask Squealer to talk to the animals and the animals would believe and be on board with whatever he said.
It lets you feel that one can do anything he or she wants without the consequences of his or her actions. In George Orwell’s illuminating fable of “Animal Farm,” he describes how a pig named Napoleon takes over an entire farm. Napoleon, with his sly group of trustworthy pigs, maintains power and takes over “Manor Farm” by using the concepts of intimidation, fear, and persuasion. Intimidation is a malicious, yet intelligent way to gather up people to join a force. By intimidating someone, one would be too frightened to stand up for his or her self.
They did not mind lying to the animals and not doing any work while the other animals are. Napoleon knew that there was a chance that the animals might rebel against him so when 9 puppies were born on the farm he took them to train as his bodyguards. “As soon as they were weaned, Napoleon took them away from their mothers…” After the animals knew what he was doing, even if they did disagree with what he was doing could not do anything about it even if the wanted to either because they were not strong enough or that they were to scared. So this meant that Napoleon could do whatever he wanted to, just like a dictator. The only animal threatening Napoleon’s place in power was Snowball, so
It was obvious that Napoleon had the better half of getting his own way on the farm. However, the animals had some problems with Napoleon but they didn’t know haw to express their feelings and show him that they didn’t like the way he ran things. It was the animals’ ignorance that helped keep Napoleon in rule for as long as it was. The responses were so different between the animals that it must have been a drastic change between Snowball and Napoleon.
In the story, the two pigs always disagreed with each other. The other animals were divided equally in supporting either Snowball or Napoleon. By spreading the rumor that Snowball was a traitor, Napoleon was able to drive Snowball from the farm and become the leader of Animal Farm with no one to oppose him. Napoleon, with the help of Squealer, turned all the animals against Snowball. Squealer, who was a masterful manipulator, played an important part in convincing the animals that Snowball was an enemy.
The revolution accomplished what it wanted, however the absence of a plan caused the animals to look for an enemy; someone to revolt against. This happened since the whole mindset of the revolution was related to overthrowing Mr. Jones, and fighting against a common enemy. Unlike capitalism, socialism didn’t allow for the personal motivation or individuality of the citizens of animal farm; moreover the citizens needed to utilize an enemy in order to mot... ... middle of paper ... ... is founded. These results seemingly correspond with any community. In the French revolution when the Reign of Terror started, and democracy failed to exists, Napoleon became emperor.
When Old Major dies in the farm it is up to Snowball and Napoleon to ensure the farm and the other animals are well maintained. Treating the animals in the farm is one of the important qualities and Snowball and Napoleon treat the animals very differently but share one similarity. Napoleon treats the animals very ruthlessly because he wishes to be... ... middle of paper ... ...ball treats them with respect and considers them his own while Napoleon is brutal to the animals and treats them like rubbish however they both want to be in charge of the animals. Snowball and Napoleon are also very different in their leadership styles. Snowball usually wins because of his brilliant speeches whilst Napoleon wants to take over the farm using dictatorship but eventually they both want their own ideas to be detained in the farm.
The nine dogs that stay by Napoleon at all times are useful for Napoleon to gain and maintain control of the farm because they scare the other animals, intimidating them so that they do not disobey Napoleon. Napoleon also uses manipulation to gain and maintain a firm control by changing the Commandments for the farm in ways that work to his benefit. Squealer, Napoleon’s propaganda department, keeps the farm animals believing in Napoleon by describing what they hear and see to make it seem harmless. Using effective tactics of fear, convincing propaganda, and manipulation, Napoleon gains and maintains control of Animal Farm. First, Napoleon uses the nine dogs that he raises to gain control of the farm and then to frighten the farm animals into accepting everything he does so that Napoleon is able to maintain control.
