Animal Farm Essay, Research Paper Animal Farm-Lord of the Flies George Orwell wrote Animal Farm. It was about a group of animals rebelling against the humans and eventually the pigs and take over. Napoleon, one of the pigs, becomes the leader. William Golding wrote Lord of the Flies. It was about a group of boys stranded on an island. Ralph becomes the leader and they try hard to survive until someone finds them. The plot, the characters, the symbols, as well as the reason for writing the two stories are very similar, but there are also some differences. There was a caste system that developed as the two stories go on. In Animal Farm there were two leaders, Napoleon and Snowball. Both of them were pigs. In their society the pigs were the smartest and were first on the caste

system. In Lord of the Flies there was one chief and it was Ralph. Ralph then appointed Jack to be the leader of the hunters. On the island the biguns, the big ones, were first on the caste system and the littluns, the little ones, were next. In Animal Farm, at the beginning, Old Major had a dream. He dreamed that the animals would take over the world and the animals would have whatever they wanted. In Lord of the Flies, at first, the island was like paradise and all they were going to do was have fun until the adults go and rescue them. However, in both stories, they ended up in disaster. The pigs took control and the other animals were in worst condition than they were in when the humans were in control. The boys ended up disagreeing and killing each other. In both stories only

certain people worked, but the characters that worked were different. In Animal Farm it was the animals at the bottom of the caste system that worked and harvested whereas in Lord of the Flies it was the biguns, the people at the top of caste system, that worked and got food. There was a difference in the amount of food that the animals and the boys got. The animals in Animal Farm were given only enough food to survive by the humans, Mr. and Mrs. Jones. After the rebellion the pigs got more food, but the other animals got the same amount or even less than before. In Lord of the Flies the biguns and the littluns got as much food as they wanted. In Animal Farm the animals built a windmill to try to generate electricity so that the stalls could warm in the winter. The windmill was

built many times and destroyed many times by Snowball (as it was said) or in battles. When it was finally built and was not destroyed, it was used for milling corn, not for generating electricity. In Lord of the Flies everyone was suppose to build shelters for sleeping and so that they can be able to hide from storms. At first everyone did, then the littluns got bored and went off to eat and play. Ralph and Simon were left to build the rest of the shelters, which kept on falling down. The windmill and shelters were also symbols in both stories. The windmill represented, to the animals, a better life to which they strive for, but as the windmill was destroyed so was their dream. The shelters were a symbol for civilization. Like the windmill the shelters kept falling, which said

that civilization would eventually break down. In both stories the characters killed animals. In Animal Farm Napoleon and his dogs killed any animals that went against him. He also killed any animal that made confessions of having somehow communicated with Snowball. In Lord of the Flies Jack and his hunters killed pigs for meat. In Animal Farm the animals hated the humans and were scared that they might take back the farm. Napoleon uses it as an excuse to keep the animals working. In Lord for the Flies the littluns are afraid of the beast . When Jack, Ralph, and Roger went and saw the beast, which is a parachute and a man, the biguns also got scared. Like Napoleon, Jack uses it to make the littluns believe he will help them and gains their trust, which will make them go to his
