Animal Farm by George Orwell – review
The title of this novel is Animal Farm by George Orwell. The title actually did sound interesting because it’s about animals and I like animals.
ll. George Orwell is the author of this novel. George Orwell, was an English novelist, essayist, journalist and critic whose work is marked by lucid prose, awareness of social injustice. He was born on June 25,1903 and he died on January 21,1950.
lll. The story Animal Farm takes place on a farm in England during an undisclosed time.
lV. Napoleon – The pig who emerges as the leader of Animal Farm after the Rebellion. Napoleon proves more treacherous than his counterpart, Snowball.
Snowball – The pig who challenges Napoleon for Control of Animal Farm after the Rebellion. Snowball seems to win the loyalty of the other animals and cement his power.
Boxer – The cart-horse whose incredible strength, dedication, and loyalty play key role in the early prosperity of Animal Farm and the later completion of the windmill. His two mottoes are I will work harder and Napoleon is always right.
Squealer – The pig who spreads Napoleon’s propaganda among the other animals. Orwell uses Squealer to explore the ways in which those in power often use rhetoric and language to twist the truth and gain and maintain social and political control.
Old Major – The prize-winning boar whose vision of a socialist utopia serves as the inspiration for the Rebellion. Orwell based Major on both the German political economist Karl Marx and the Russian revolutionary leader Vladimir Lenin.
Clover – A good-hearted female cart-horse and Boxer’s close friend.
Moses – The tame raven who spreads stories of Sugarcandy Mountain, the paradise to which animals supposedly go when they die. Orwell uses him to explore how communism exploits religion as something with which to pacify the oppressed.
Mollie – The vain, flighty mare who pulls Mr.Jones’s carriage. She represents the petit bourgeoisie that fled from Russia a few years after the Russian Revolution.
Benjamin – The long-lived donkey who refuses to feel inspired by the Rebellion.
Muriel – The white goat who reads the Seven Commandments to Clover whenever Clover suspects the pigs of violating their prohibitions.
Mr. Jones – The often drunk farmer who runs the Manor Farm before the animals stage their Rebellion and establish Animal Farm.
Mr.Frederick – The tough, shrewd operator of Pinchfield, a neighboring farm.
Mr.Pilkington – The easygoing gentleman farmer who runs foxwood, a neighboring farm.
Jessie and Blue – Two dogs, each of whom gives birth early in the novel.
Minimus – The poet pig who writes verse about Napoleon and pens the banal patriotic song Animal Farm.
V. Napoleon was the main characters and snowball was arguing about being the leader.
Vl. In chapter 5, Napoleon runs Snowball of the farm with his trained pack of dogs and declares that the power to make decisions for the farm will be exercised solely by the pigs.
Vll. The corruption of socialist ideals. The societal tendency toward class stratification; the danger of a naive working class; the abuse of language as instrumental to the abuse of power.
Vlll. Old Major, a prize-winning boar, gathers the animals of the Manor farm for a meeting in the big barn. He tells them of a dream he had in which all animals live together with no human beings to oppress or control them. The animals greet Major’s vision with great enthusiasm. When he dies only three nights after the meeting, three younger pigs Snowball, Napoleon, and Squealer formulate his main principles into a philosophy called Animalism. Late one night the animals manage to defeat the farmer Mr.Jones in a battle, running him off the land.
They rename the property Animal Farm. They dedicate themselves to achieving Major’s dream. The cart-horse Boxer devotes himself to the cause with particular zeal, committing his great strength to the prosperity of the farm and adopting as a personal maxim the affirmation I will work harder. Snowball works at teaching the animals to read, and Napoleon takes a group of young puppies to educate them in the principles of animalism. When Mr.Jones reappears to take back his farm, the animals defeat him again, in what comes to be known as the Battle of the Cowshed, and take the farmer’s abandoned gun as a token of their victory. As time passes,however, Napoleon and Snowball increasingly quibble over the future of the farm, they begin to struggle with each other for power and influence among the other animals.
lX. Yes I liked the book because it shows that no matter what what killing is not the solution and also because it talks about being equal now in days people don’t know how to be equal. It’s showing us that we all have to be equal even though we’re different. There were some parts that made me happy but there was also some parts that made me mad. Yes of course I would tell my friends to read this book because it’s interesting.
