For instance, the animals, under the command of Napoleon and Snowball, declare the Battle of Cowshed to end humans’ dominance over them at the Manor Farm. They choose brutal methods to torment their enemies, whom they consider as tyrants. Moreover, during the battle, Boxer, a naïve and strong male horse, accidently kills a boy.

The authors obvious irony and symbolism helps support the theme that history repeats itself because no matter what, the bad and good are constantly on war, and only repeat rather than make progress. Napoleon and Mr. Jones are paralleled two characters that help represent that history repeats itself. Mr Jones was overthrown by Napoleon, but Napoleon later acted exactly like Mr. Jones. “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and man to pig, and from pig to man again, but already it was impossible to say which was which.”

This shows that Napoleon had waited for the right moment to overpower the other pig. This also shows that the guard dogs had been told a false truth to or bribed with benefits if they had gone with the plan and attacked Snowball without a second thought. In addition, Napoleon continues to change rules and make new

The following speech is given by Clover soon after the pigs started sleeping in the Manor House. “My fellow comrades, I am here to tell you that the pigs are not good leaders. Now I know that this might come as a shock to everyone, but I want you to hear me out. Recently, we found out that the pigs started sleeping on the beds in the Manor House and at first, we were all disturbed and we all remembered a rule that banned animals from sleeping on beds, which is why we all confronted the pigs. But then Squealer convinced us that this was not the case.
When the boys crash-landed on the island they were mostly all innocent other than a few exceptions. The boy who the reader can see loses the most innocence is Jack. Jack is the choir leader and just wants more power, like a dictator. As the story goes on, the reader sees how Jack changes from an innocent choir boy to a pig obsessed ravenous killer.

The core values of AF are to do work. The core values of WD are to stay alive, be happy and be free. In AF, they get to the point about ¾ of the way through the book when the animals are woken up, they get food, go to work, get food and go to bed. That is a pretty dreary life.
“Abu wants us to be scared, responding with hatred and anger will only allow us to act in the same ignorance that has made Abu what Abu is.” Said Paris the pig. Within a second Abu crashed into the house growling and foaming at the mouth, at the sight of the panicking animals. His deathly nails protruding from his paws, he exclaims, “who’s first?!” He stood face to face with the three pigs, his teeth shimmering in the light, stained with blood. As the pigs stood with no fear whatsoever, the wolf stood, confused, “no fear?” questioned the wolf.
Old major requests other animals in the farm to meet in the barn after Mr.Jones get drunk and falls asleep. Major gives a speech about how evil the humans are and how they need to rebel against Man.

His fear allows him to hallucinate the sow talking to him and telling him that the savages were going to eventually kill him and letting him know that his evil was inside him and not physically terrorizing the boys on the island. The evil that the sow’s head spoke of was in the air as Simon crawled out of the forest after a fainting spell. Jack immediately took the initiative of telling his tribe to “Kill the beast! Cut his throat!
It might look like “The Three Little Pigs” and “The Marble Champ” by Gary Soto are different kinds of story. One is a fairytale from long time ago and one is a short story about kids from the the present time, but if you take a second look you'll realize that they both share a common theme.
