Animal Farm Essay Essay, Research Paper December 2, 1996 Period 5 Animal Farm Essay The name of the book is Animal Farm, which is written by George Orwell. This book is about a farm with animals who dislike the treatment, and overtake the farm and overthrow the humans of the farm. As the revolution took place, two leaders came about. Their names were Snowball and Napoleon, whose main goal was to have nothing to do with humans, and bring communism into their society. “Napoleon was a large, rather fierce-looking Berkshire boar, the only one of those on the farm. He was not much of a talker, but with a reputation for getting his own way” (Ch.2, P. 25). “Snowball was a more vivacious pig than Napoleon, quicker in speech and more inventive but did not have the character

depth that Napoleon did” (Ch.2, Pgs. 24-25.) Snowball was the one with the ideas like the committees and the windmill. He was a better thinker than Napoleon. When all the animals helped kick Mr. Jones off the farm, Snowball led the animals to the store-shed and served out a double ration of corn to everybody with two biscuits going to each of the dogs. Napoleon on the other hand was very selfish. He stole milk that was meant for everybody and drank it all, and he stole apples. He doesn’t care about the work the animals do, just what would benefit him. For example, Napoleon comes up with the building of the windmill that would supply electricity so they would not have to work as hard. Napoleon was against this because he didn’t come up with the idea. When Napoleon sees that

Snowball is gaining more power with the speech of the windmill, Napoleon sends his dogs to chase Snowball out of the farm. After Snowball was chased out of the farm, Napoleon gains more power by saying Snowball was a bad person. He told the animals that Snowball was with Mr. Jones from the starting. (Ch 6. P. 72) “We will teach this miserable traitor that he cannot undo our work so easily.” He is now saying that Snowball was the one who ruined the windmill, even though it was his idea. He called him a traitor. And when Napoleon couldn’t do the trash talking, he sent squealer. “For we know now, it is all written down in the secret documents that we have found-that in reality he was trying to lure us to our doom” (Ch. 7 P. 80). He was telling all the animals that Snowball

was a traitor and was with Mr. Jones, because of the Battle of the Cowshed. He told them that it was all set up for them to be slaughtered. One animal shouted that he was shot. But squealer was a smart one. He told them that the shot only grazed him, and Napoleon was the good guy. He was the one that sank his teeth into Jones’ leg. To me at least, it seemed that Snowball was always trying to do what was best for the farm and all the other animals. Snowball came up with the ideas for the committees, the windmill, helped with the commandments. He was the courageous leader because the fact is that he was the one who led the animals at the Battle of the Cowshed. he was the one who was supplying the animals with food during the rebellion. Napoleon was stealing food. Napoleon, since,

has been changing the commandments that would best suit him. He has basically changed all the commandments with a few words. The seventh commandment has been changed to (Ch.10 P. 123) “All Animals are Equal But Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others,” meaning of course, the pigs are more equal. The commandments are being changed to benefit them. The alcohol commandment has changed with an addition of two words. “No Animal Shall drink Alcohol To Excess). The bed commandment has changed to where they can now sleep in beds, but without sheets, but the only animals that sleep in the beds are the pigs. Since the leader of the farm is a pig, none of the pigs have to follow the commandments because when they break one, they just change it to what they did. I think that the
