I like the pigs, especially Napoleon and Snowball. Napoleon was the pig who emerges as the leader of Animal Farm after the Rebellion. Based on Joseph Stalin, Napoleon uses military force (his nine loyal attack dogs) to intimidate the other animals and consolidate his power. In his supreme craftiness, Napoleon proves more treacherous than his counterpart, Snowball. Snowball was the pig who wanted Old Major’s dream to live on.
Napoleon who was in control in Animal farm is similar to Joseph Stalin. One similarity between Napoleon and Stalin is they would eliminate anyone who would disagree with them or rebel against their rules. In the book Animal Farm Napoleon gets rid of Snowball because they didn't agree on what to do for the farm and he was worried all the animals would side with Snowballs ideas not Napoleons. In the book it states, “They dashed straight for Snowball, who only sprang from his place just in time to escape their snapping jaws,” (Orwell 53). This shows that napoleon felt threatened by Snowball and was worried he would take over the farm so he used his dogs to try to kill Snowball so Napoleon could have no choice but to rule the farm.
Every country fears war, rebellion, and revolution as those lead to massacre and death. Unfortunately, all governments contain some sort of corruption and that could lead to the country 's worst fears. The book, Animal Farm embodies corruption and dictatorship as the animals on the farm revolt against their owner and master, Jones, and create a new set of rules they call animalism. The pigs, after the revolt, rise into high positions of power and eventually, Napoleon the pig becomes a self-appointed dictator and leads the animals back into a dark age. Likewise, North Korea 's last few decades validates the claims when a man named Kim il-Sung led a revolution against the Japanese and rose into power to the presidential position.
One of the big thing snowball and napoleon argue about was how to deal with this issue on whether or not to create a up rising on other farmers or just to defend their own. After snowball got run off the farm he was used as a to shut down any of his supporters “the three hens that had been the ringleaders in the attempt rebellina over the eggs now came forward and stated snowball had appeared to them in a dream and invited them to disobey napoleon.” Now that snowball has been shown as a enemy of animal farm the animals that did something wrong would blame snowball but little did they now they got killed for what they did and now for the first time scenes jones another animal had killed another animal. The fear that someone was going to take over the farm out wayed the fact the pigs had broken a
The lesson shown in this story is that power can corrupt a society. Old Major, the wisest pig, says that after he dies the animals should rebel against the farmer and start their own government so that every animal can be happy and be equal. Old Major dies, a new leader must be chosen. Two pigs (Napoleon and Snowball) decide to be leaders and try to get the animals’ votes. Napoleon sends the guard dogs to attack Snowball, after that he runs away and doesnt come back.. Napoleon then become ruler, and is said to be a very good, wise pig.
Animal Farm -the history of a rebellion that went wrong- is George Orwell 's brilliant satire on the corrupting influence of power. It was first published in 1945. According to Orwell, the book reflects events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and then on into the Stalin era in the Soviet Union. In the book, Mr. Jones, the owner of the Manor farm is so lazy and drunken that one day he forgets to feed his livestock. The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm.
The Use of Propaganda in Animal Farm by George Orwell Propaganda is defined as misleading or biased information spread for the advancement of a cause. In the historical fiction novel Animal Farm written by George Orwell farm animals overpower their human leader and attempt to construct a movement in which all animals are equal. Propaganda is evident throughout the story. Not far in it becomes apparent that the pigs are the most intelligent. Squealer, the propaganda agent uses propaganda in the story as a way to manipulate the animals who are not pigs.
As what has happened in Animal Farm, Napoleon declared “Snowball’s expulsion” (Orwell 54) without the Comrades’ approval since they made noises of disapproval. As a result, Napoleon uses “the dog sitting around him to let out deep, menacing growls (Orwell 54)” to scare them away. He therefore had used the animal’s fear to gain power; and later on, the supporting “sheeps broke out into a tremendous bleating of ‘Four legs good, two legs bad! (Orwell 55)’” to end any chance of discussion on this topic. This is one of the propaganda the sheeps used to support Napoleon.
George Orwell, the author of “Ant Farm” illustrates the Russian Revolution War in this novella. Many of the characters and events seen in the story symbolizes a factor of the Russian Revolution War in 1917. In a nutshell, characters like Snowball, Old Major and Napoleon portrays the assertive heros figures in this influential War. Napoleon in particular, a Boar Pig, is known to never contribute to the establishment of Animal Farm. In the beginning of the story, Orwell explains how Napoleon is a “fierce looking” boar who always gets his way.
The book starts out with old major informing the animals about Animalism. In the Revolution Karl Marx is telling his country of communism and how its a brilliant idea. Eventually old major dies, and that 's when snowball and napoleon take over the farm and rename it the animal farm, similarly Karl Marx and Lenin overtake Nicholas II and they renamed Russia to the USSR. Jones failed when he tried to retake his farm back but in the revolution the white army fights the rod army and fails. Mollie leaves the farm, and napoleon drives snowball out and he takes over the leadership on the farm.
