Animal Farm George Orwell 4-19-02 Book Review # Plot Summary George Orwell’s Animal Farm is a political satire of a totalitarian society ruled by a mighty dictatorship, in all probability a fable for the events surrounding the Russian Revolution of 1917. The animals of “Manor Farm” overthrow their human master after a long history of mistreatment. Led by the pigs, the farm animals continue to do their work, only with more pride, knowing that they are working for themselves, as opposed to working for humans. Little by little, the pigs become dominant, gaining more power and advantage over the other animals, so much so that they become as corrupt and power-hungry as their predecessors, the humans. Characterization Major is a white boar, he is old and wise.
Some of these animals’ names are Old Major, Snowball, and Napoleon. They are all pigs from the farm. The animals on the farm get tired of how they are getting badly treated. So they end up overthrowing their farm owner Mr. Jones. After they overthrow their owner, the pigs start taking over the farm and taking control over all the other animals in the farm.
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.
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.
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.
