The one main reason that the betrayal of Boxer could be an alternative climax is because when Napoleon sent Boxer to the knacker, everything went bad. After Boxer was sent to the knacker and killed, Squealer and Napoleon both lied saying, “The van had previously been the property of the knacker, and had been bought by the veterinary surgeon, who had not yet painted the old name out.” (page 125), the animals were relieved but this was not true. This is about the start of when Napoleon and the pigs start to turn into humans, “It was a pig walking on his hind legs.” (page 132), and changing their commandments just a little so that no animal will really notice. “All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.” (page 134). After Napoleon had all and any threats out of the way, Boxer, his plan to truly be the ruler of Animal Farm and all animals was put to work.
Document A state's “ Squealer...was sprawling beside it, and near at hand there lay a lantern, a paint-brush, and an overturned pot of white paint...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 so, they wanted to leave the farm then, Napoleon ended up destroying the farm and
“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.
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. Napoleon made a substantial impact on the way the animals reacted to their new hardships.
Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” Luther’s statement about ignorance being dangerous is a recurring idea in Animal Farm, written by George Orwell. In this allegorical story, Orwell uses the animals of Manor Farm to represent the corrupted leaders of the Russian Revolution, as well as the people who stood by and let it happen. Through his characters, Orwell attempts to expose the seriousness of the dangers presented by Stalin and other totalitarian leaders at the time and the need for people to think for themselves and oppose the tyranny. George Orwell uses Napoleon to take advantage of the other animal’s hardworking, albeit ignorant and naive attitudes to gain power and provoke fear and manipulate the farm animals, proving that, without followers, leaders have no power. In Animal Farm, Napoleon takes advantage of Boxer’s loyalty in order to motivate the animals to work more, and harder.
Recently, I read Animal Farm by George Orwell. Orwell is a well-known American author who includes many themes, morals, and symbolism throughout his novels to portray a message. This book is well-known because it illustrates the struggles during Soviet Russia as seen through the animals on the farm. Throughout the book, Orwell uses a variety of different themes; one important theme that I noted was abuse of power. Because of the abuse of power on the farm, Napoleon is able to control and manipulate the other animals, which creates an environment of mistrust that eventually leads to the downfall of the farm.
The fable, Animal Farm by George Orwell is an allegory for the Russian Revolution. It allusively criticizes Joseph Stalin, by symbolizing him with Napoleon. In the novel, the animal revolution with the best of intentions was gradually undermined by the pigs’ corruption and avarice. As a reference to the emergence of the Soviet Communism, Animal Farm conveys the theme that not only are the tactics of the figures in power responsible for their rise to power, but the oppressed working class is also partially at fault. The loyal servants of Napoleon contributed actively towards his takeover, while the working class, through gullibility, naivety and unwillingness to question authority, condemned themselves to Napoleon’s oppression.
George Orwell 's story Animal Farm is written in the form of an allegory. This story is an allegory because George Orwell uses the animals as symbolic figures to represent humans and the farm as a representation for a world war. He also uses the events that happened in Russia at that time to represent the communist rule of the Soviet Union. In Animal Farm, Orwell uses Old Major, an old pig, to be a teacher to all the other animals on the farm to help them learn how to exist in a world where animals can rule without humans. Old Major tries to teach the animals that without humans ruling, animals could do a better job and by taking over the farm where they live, they could finally be free and not under the communist rule of humans.
He serves as the force that holds Animal Farm together. He represents the Proletariat or Russian workers and laborers. His power is mostly manipulated by that of Napoleon. After Snowball is sent into exile, Boxer tries to think things over for himself, but all he can come up with is, "If Comrade Napoleon says it, it must be right," and he takes up a new personal motto: "Napoleon is always
While yes I would be an animal if I lived in this utopia I would probably be just as clueless as the other animals on the farm. In Animal Farm Napoleon changes the rules slightly each time he breaks them to comply with what he did. This is another reason I am against utopias. In “Harrison Bergeron” there is a leader who is in charge of all of the handicaps, affectively called the handicapper general. The plot of the story is that Harrison, who is exceptionally stronger, smarter, and more handsome than everybody else,
