Napoleon tells the creatures that Snowball is in charge of its ruin and offers a prize to any creature who executes Snowball or brings him back alive. Napoleon then proclaims that they will start revamping the windmill that very morning. CHAPTER 7: As the human world watches Animal Farm and sits tight for news of its disappointment, the creatures battle against starvation. Napoleon utilizes Mr. Whymper to spread news of Animal Farm's adequacy to the human world. In the wake of discovering that they must surrender their eggs, the hens arrange an exhibit that just finishes when they can no more live without the proportions that Napoleon had denied them.
Although both brought benefits to the farm, the animals lived happier at first. The farm had filled with positive energy, everyone encouraged each other. Greatly different from Snowball’s compassion, Napoleon’s heart was only filled with power and his own selfish desire. Even if the farm became richer, everyone would like freedom instead of living in fear of Napoleon. For the sake of the animal’s livelihood, Snowball should take the place of Napoleon and stay in the Animal Farm to govern the animals.
“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. “‘...Bravery isn’t enough’, said Squealer, ‘Loyalty and obedience are more important, and as of the Battle of Cowshed, I believe the time will come when we shall find his part in it much exaggerated.’” This quote describes how Napoleon uses his position to change the opinions of the animals by belittling Snowball.
The animals are tired of Mr. Jones and how he treats them so they overrule him. Napoleon abuses the animals trust and uses his power for evil. Napoleon ends up changing everything in the farm. Many years pass and Mr. Jones also passes away. Boxer and Snowball become forgotten.
Comparison of Animal Farm Many comparisons can be made from Animal Farm to the excerpt “The Clocks Were Striking Thirteen” from the novel 1984. Some similarities in Animal Farm and “The Clocks Were Striking Thirteen” are portrayed through the two themes, abuse of language and power corrupts, and also the mood. One theme seen both in Animal Farm and “The Clocks Were Striking Thirteen” is power corrupts. In Animal Farm the pigs quickly become corrupted by their want in power, especially Napoleon. The pigs think they are better than the other animals and start to act very much like humans.
Napoleon uses this to his advantage by having a basic first set of commandments which is “reduced to… ‘Four legs good, two legs bad.’ This, he said, contained the essential principle of Animalism.”. Throughout the book the commandments are changed to fit the pigs lifestyle. Animalism was supposed to be used to keep one animal from having more, or less power than the others. One of the commandments states that “5. No animal shall drink alcohol.”.
Animal Farm by George Orwell is an allegorical story to the Russian Revolution due to the characters and plot points mirroring events and people in the Russian Revolution. The story takes place on a farm in England in which animals revolt against their human owner Mr Jones. Within that farm they decide to go towards animalism, which is the belief that animals should take over of their farm and go by commandments to keep peace within that farm. But then power is over thrown throughout the book by main character Napoleon, a pig who thinks he is superior due to being a pig and many other pigs who think the same. Some animals are worked to death and rules are changed within the farm power corrupts by the over powering of the pigs.
Animal Farm is a novella written by George Orwell, where a pig dictator, Napoleon, tries to gain power by using different types of propaganda. This novella takes place in an imaginary farm in England that focuses on politics. George Orwell said that he was inspired by the Russian Revolution, but the idea of the awareness of corruption applies to the world. Similarly to Animal Farm, World War II “was arguably the most significant period of the 20th century” (historynet.com) that lasted from 1939 to 1945. The corruption and dictation of the government was what inspired George Orwell to write Animal Farm.
The animals are scared of Jones because he was not feeding them so they really don’t want him to come back. That is how Napoleon cast fear over the animals so he can stay in power. When Napoleon from Orwell's Animal Farm uses ideology, propaganda, and fear, he will stay in control for a very long time. When he is in control, the animal's don’t want to become the enemy because he has more power than them, so he will start to control all the
They all rose up against him and took his power and control over the whole farm. “The men had milked the cows in the early morning and then had gone out rabbiting, without bothering to feed the animals. When Mr. Jones got back he immediately went to sleep on the drawing-room sofa with the News of the World over his face, so that when evening came, the animals were still unfed. At last they could stand it no longer. One of the cows broke in the door of the store-shed with her horn and all the animals began to help themselves from the bins.
