“But...the dogs sitting round Napoleon let out deep, menacing growls, and the pigs fell silent and sat down again.” This phrase describes Napoleon’s dogs after they chased Snowball off the farm. He used the dogs to scare the other animals into doing what he told them without hesitation. This is just one of the ways he uses fear to stay in control. Napoleon also uses propaganda to remain in power.
Napoleon considers the other animals who oppose his rule as treaters and kills them These are representations of Stalin’s purges that began before the Second World War and continued into the 1950s. Throughout Animal Farm, the animals needed to increase their resources, they undergo negotiations with other farms. then, a nearby farm known as Pinchfield became the best supplier of resources for Napoleon. Nonetheless, to symbolize Hitler and Russian involvement in the second World War Orwell stated that Pinchfield turns against the animal farm.
In the novel, Animal Farm, the pigs are substandard examples of good leaders because they are self-serving hypocrites. This is an allegorical story to what happened in the Russian Revolution. Napoleon, the main leader of the farm, represents Stalin, the leader of Russia in the revolution. They were both corrupt leaders that manipulated their own people. For example, Napoleon brainwash the animals into thinking he is always right.
Such was what men devoted to communism, like George Orwell, author of the book Animal Farm, might have beheld when facing the despotism in Russia under the charade of communism, and such was the sight of the animals of Animal Farm, when the pigs march out of the farmhouse on two feet, triumphant, as dominators, as humans. Though late in the narrative, multiple factors clearly make this the turning point. It is because of the animal 's protests, the indifference of the pigs, and the sharp contrast the author draws between the mood before and after this scene that this is the turning point where the reader is simultaneously enraged and disappointed. For the first time, the animals want to protest against the pigs ' actions.
Throughout the story Napoleon and Squealer use propaganda to brainwash the animals so they believe everything they say even if it is not true. The animals lie to each other to convince them something that is not true. The animals also start to believe that if everyone believes something they should too. Lastly, the animals use fear to scare each other into believing something and working more. Propaganda on the farm affected the animals lives and how they viewed things which made the whole farm start to collapse towards the end of the story.

Juliette Blalock Singh 4/5 Animal Farm In the satiric novel Animal Farm by George Orwell, the character Napoleon represents a dictator in society, who turns a self-governed and unbiased farm into his own. Napoleon initially unifies with the rest of the animal’s, but soon decides to take matters into his own hands and disposes of Snowball and his proposals towards the farm. He takes advantage of the vulnerable animals so he can become in command. Napoleon is clever, brutal, and dictatorial to the animals.
The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organised to benefit all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the rebellion are corrupt, then forgotten. This is all due to the lust for power that the pigs Napoleon and Snowball have that made them all selfish and corrupted. Animal farm in context to The Russian Revolution in terms of corrupting influence of power : Orwell 's goal was to portray the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the early years of the Soviet Union that resulted in a more oppressive and deadly government than the one it overthrew.
None of the animals...except for old Benjamin...seemed to understand...” That quote means that Napoleon forced squealer to go change the commandments to benefit the pigs. The pigs think they are superior over the other animals even though the farm's motto is “Four legs good, two legs bad.” Napoleon wanted to keep superiority over the farm by using fear, propaganda, and Animalism to get his ways at the farm. Napoleon wanted to have complete power over the farm but the animals were catching onto what he was doing to the future of the farm
Fear used in Animal Farm Fear is a constant theme seen throughout Animal Farm. The author uses the pigs to demonstrate how fear is used even today by people in power to keep others standing against them repressed. Napoleon, Squealer, and even Snowball for a short period of time, used their status to subdue any animals that had the audacity to stand against them. However, there are a faction of lower level animals that do believe in the higher power for instance Boxer, the dogs, and the sheep. In George Orwell’s book Animal Farm, Napoleon and Squealer use fear to control and oppress the other animal by threats, executions, and changing commandments.
In the novella, the overthrow of the human oppressor Mr. Jones by a democratic coalition of animals quickly gives way to the consolidation of power among the pigs. Much like the Soviet intelligentsia, the pigs establish themselves as the ruling class in the
The main lesson of the novella can be summarized into one quote from Winston Churchill: "Absolute power corrupts, and power corrupts absolutely. " Even after the animals impeach the old hated ruler, the new leadership grew to have many of the same qualities as the old regime, mainly the lower class blindly following the upper class. As a result, the greedy
This quote showcases the specific way Orwell places his words to change the tone of this story. For example, in the quote it says that pigs are “generally recognized” as being the cleverest of animals. Orwell could have said that the pigs are the cleverest of animals, but he did not. This causes the reader to think: what if the pigs are not the most intelligent? What if the pigs manipulate the animals into thinking they are the most intelligent?
George Orwell’s Use of Power. In Animal Farm, a novel written by George Orwell uses the symbols: Stalin, the working class and the upper class to convey that the more intelligent someone is, the more power they will have. George Orwell writes a novel about animals who represent human beings to show that the less intelligent someone is, the harder life will be. Stalin was very intelligent so he could own anything, if they did not listen or obey Stalin, they were punished.
