Animal Farm Essay, Research Paper 1.Author: Orwell, George 2.Title: Animal Farm 3.Number of Pages: 128 4.Summary: Throughout George Orwell’s Animal Farm there are many fascinating and important characters. Among them are Mr. Jones, Major, Boxer, Squealer, Snowflake, Napoleon, Clover, and Benjamin. One of the more important characters of this story would have to be Boxer. Boxer was a large and powerful horse, but was also aging. He was not the brightest of the animals on the farm, but was fiercely loyal. Another pivotal character was Napoleon. Napoleon was a short and fat pig. While intelligent, he was bitterly vengeful and ruthless as a leader. While no time frame is specified during the story, it appears to take places in the early half of the 1900s. The majority of the

tale takes place on Manor Farm, a poor country farm, later renamed Animal Farm, and later renamed Manor Farm once more. The main goal of this story appears to be the destruction of humanity in the interests of animal rule. The story begins with a well respected animal, Major, delivering a rousing speech to his fellow comrades. He tells of a future rebellion with animals taking control of the planet and abolishing humanity. Soon after this the animals decide to take action, and one day drive the owner of Manor Farm, Mr. Jones, off of his property and take control of the farm. Two of the pigs, Snowflake and Napoleon, assume the main leadership roles and rename the farm Animal Farm. The animals begin to build a fine farm, and even fight off an attack from Mr. Jones and some other

farmers. The animals also initiate a system of seven commandments for all animals. Unfortunately this good fortune for the animals came to an abrupt halt when Napoleon had his private squad of attack dogs chase Snowflake of off Animal Farm. Napoleon then becomes a ruthless dictator. He forces all animals to work very hard, never working himself. Napoleon is also a poor manager, as during his reign the farm’s production falls dramatically due to his undertaking of special projects such as windmills and schools. While in command of the farm, he proceeds to break more and more of the seven commandments, until one day he abolishes them and institutes only one, “all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others”. It is revealed that he abuses his animals far worse than

any human, and gives them drastically less rations. The story ends as the animals are watching some of the pigs with some humans, and as they look around the room they can no longer tell which is pig and which is human. I liked the first human assault on Animal Farm. I found the mental picture of a small group of humans being overtaken by pigs, geese, sheep, and cows to be very entertaining. The organization of the assault was also entertaining. To think that animals could actually conjure up such a plan is amusing. Boxer whipped some butt there too, I like that because I liked Boxer. 5.Title: This book got its title for an obvious reason. The farm was overtaken by animals, so they renamed it Animal Farm. 6.Rating: I’ll give it an 8, because it was very short, but was able to

hold your interest. Bibliography (Original Work)
