George Orwell’s Animal Farm: A Review
The theme of Animal Farm is that power can overcome a private and be abused by an individual. Napoleon ends up being the head pig and he becomes somewhat like a dictator. The other animals have barely any say in how the farm is run. For instance, instantly after Snowball is kicked out of the farm revealed on page sixty-eight it says, “He announced the Sunday-morning Conferences would concern an end. They were unnecessary he stated, and lost time.” It appears like Napoleon has not sought advice from the other farm animals or the “Animal Committees” Snowball had actually arranged on page forty-nine.
The pigs start to dismiss the “7 Rules” put on the wall of the barn towards the end of the book. The rules were changed for the pigs’ own individual gain at first. The words had actually been changed in the rules as shown on page one hundred twelve, to one hundred thirteen. For instance, “Squealer, momentarily shocked, was sprawling next to it, and near at hand lay a lantern, a paintbrush, and an overturned pot of white paint.” The seven rules were all gone but one, at the end of the book.
The modified version of the original and just rule checked out “All animals are equivalent. However some more equal than others.” The pigs began strolling on their hind legs, walking like a human does, and wearing clothes that were left behind by the initial owners of the farm. The last line of the book on page one hundred thirty-nine says, “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, to pig to man once again; but already it was impossible to state which was which. This shows that the pigs had actually developed into the things that the animals had actually hated and rebelled against in the start, humans. The animals take over the farm after their transformation versus Jones and form a communist federal government. One of the original commandments, revealed on page forty-three, written on the side of the barn is a terrific example for it says, “All animals are equivalent.” Although when Napoleon takes control of Animal Farm’s government and turns it into a totalitarian dictatorship government.
This totalitarian dictatorship is revealed right now when Snowball is kicked out of the farm on page sixty-eight. Napoleon had a say in both the communist government and the totalitarian government; although he had the only say in the police state. Napoleon had as much of a say as the remainder of the pigs when the communist federal government existed. Snowball and Napoleon often discussed versus one another, which resulted in sides being considered among their opinions or concepts. In the totalitarian government whatever Napoleon commanded was done.
The hens declined to give all their eggs to Napoleon to cost products when he commanded them to. Eventually the hens had given up after, as it says on page eighty-seven, “Napoleon acted quickly and ruthlessly.” The hens’ provisions had been stopped and other animals were not able to offer any of their rations to support the hens. Among the original commandments check out, on page forty-three, “No animal will kill any other animal.” The initial commandments were made during the communist federal government.
Throughout the police state Napoleon had not disobeyed the commandment according to page ninety-eight where the commandment now checks out “No animal will eliminate any other animal without cause.” Napoleon orders the pets, he had trained, to kill the animals believed to be traitors since they had confessed to exposure to the expelled pig Snowball on page ninety-three. The occasion considerably shocks the animals; on page ninety-five Clover’s ideas state “These scenes of horror and massacre were not what they had actually anticipated on that night when old Significant first stirred them to rebellion. Napoleon had not made work equal in the police state. The work was equivalent and the pigs assisted with the work when the communist federal government existed. Snowball was still on the farm when he proposed the building and construction of a windmill and a three-day work-week for the animals. Napoleon opposed the idea of a windmill and when Snowball was gone demanded the building of a windmill. He required the building of the windmill and made the animals work everyday, except the pigs which did not work in Napoleon’s police state.
The pigs worked in the communist government that Snowball influenced as opposed to the police state. In a nutshell, the totalitarian dictatorship federal government and communist government within the book Animal Farm are extremely different. The communist federal government had the animals working together and they had equal rights. The totalitarian government had advantages for mainly the pigs, leading to Napoleon’s total supremacy of the farm. The style of abuse of power, and being gotten rid of by power appear.
