Animal Farm And The Russian Revolution Essay

, Research Paper

Animal Farm and the Russian Revolution

have many similarities and ideas. The characters, settings, and the plots

are the same. In addition Animal Farm is a satire and allegory of the Russian

Revolution, George Orwell meant for it to be that way. My essay will cover

the comparison between Animal Farm and the Russian Revolution. Also it

will explain why this novel is a satire and allegory to the Revolution.

First of all the characters of the farm

have a special role in Russian Revolution. The farm itself represents Russia,

with its poor conditions and irresponsible leaders. Napoleon, the mad dictator

pig who plays Joseph Stalin in real life. Snowball, the leader who gets

betrayed by Napoleon and plays Lenin, Old Major as Karl Marx. And who could

forget the others like Boxer, who plays the working class, and Molly as

white Russia, and of course

Mendez 2 the evil dogs of Napoleon who

inspire the role as the secret police of Joseph Stalin. Both the novel

and Russian Revolution cover the same ideas because of these reasons. In

the Russian Revolution an irresponsible leader name “Nicholas the second”

or how people in those days refer to him as “the Czar” was overthrown by

a new leader with better ideas and ways to keep Russia alive, he was Lenin!

But then he was betrayed by one of his communist comrades, Stalin. Stalin

ruled for a great period of time, but everyone knows there is no such thing

as immortality, and so he got kicked out too! This time by his own people.

In Animal Farm a boar name “Old Major” has a dream about a world where

animals rule, there are no differences, all equality, a dream about communism.

This same thought applies with the idea of Stalin and his plan in ruling

Russia. So when Snowball hears this him and his comrades get ready to attack

the government, Mr. Jones (also known as “the Czar”). When he is overthrown

Snowball becomes the leader and is betrayed by Napoleon. This event is

when Stalin kicks out Lenin. Mendez 3

Animal Farm is a great example of a “Political

Satire”. The novel was written to criticize the totalitarian regimes and

particularly Stalin’s rule in Russia. In Chapter one its tells how the

author, George Orwell, feels about the novel. Also it give reference to

the farm and how it relates to Russia. But you can see all the satire in

chapter two. It tells how inefficient of the idea “communism” does not

work. Human nature can’t handle “communism”. We are too devious and too

demanding for the things we want, we are “bossy”. From chapter two to the

last chapter shows how the novel is a Satire and in the end has a conclusion

that was shown in chapter two.

The characters, settings, and plot of Animal

Farm is an “allegory” to the Russian Revolution. For example Napoleon symbolizes

Joseph Stalin because they are both advocates of the devil and follow an

idea of a certain race or species ruling everything.

The farm of course is Russia with their

bad conditions and no good government. And last of all the plot tells about

the same thing, dictatorship never works! Mendez 4

George Orwell has made good points in

his novel. I think he’s a great and very smart writer because his novel

was disguised as a children’s novel to a Revolution where if you spoke

what you thought about it you would get executed. In conclusion I think

Animal Farm is a great novel and not only did I learn about a group of

Animals taking over a farm but I learned more about World War one history

and Russia’s history.
