ANIMAL FARM

In the novel 1984, George Orwell shows us a culture and society in dire need of a

revolution. In Animal Farm, he uses animals to personify a possible outcome of this

revolution. His interpretation of the treatment of animals and their rebellion is not

possible, but taken metaphorically is one of the most is insightful views of the possible

corruption of the human mind during absolute power.

The story begins with the Manor Farm, a small self sustaining cropland with all of

the animals. Their are pigs, sheep, horses and geese. But the animals in this tale talk, and

when the old horse named Major calls a meeting, the animals comply. He tells the

animals of a dream he had. It was a great dream, for he envisioned all of the animals

working for themselves. He saw a farm with no humans, one where animals beared the

fruits of their own labor, and were happy. It isn?t long until the animals get the

opportunity to make Majors dream a reality. With the expulsion of the humans the

animals were free to rule themselves. They met every Sunday to discuss the weeks

business, and as time wore on, the meetings changed to heated debates between the two

most influential pigs. These pigs were Snowball and Napoleon. Snowball, with his

exceptional wit and great moving speeches envisioned an Animal Farm with electricity,

heat and running water in every animals stall. He proposed the building of a windmill to

achieve such goals. His plans would have been implemented too, if it had not been for

the underhanded foul play of Napoleon. He had taken the time to train nine of the dogs

pups to be his personal protectors. They cast out Snowball and Napoleon took control.

Things began to change.

Napoleon, with the help of his fellow pigs and ferocious dogs slowly began to

change the running of Animal Farm. Animals received less food and worked longer and

harder than they had when the humans had control. But the animals did not know it.

The constant brainwashing by Napoleon kept them unaware of the disparity of their own

lives. Napoleon goes so far as to declare that it was his idea to make the windmill, not

Snowballs. He then put the animals through ?inhumane? work loads and minimal food.

This is similar to the idea of continuous war in 1984. By wasting resources, the fruits of

the animals labor are wasted and continual poverty is established. The therefore have

little ability to again revolt, since, after all, their lives were in there own hands, they were

free! Also, since they know nothing different than what they are living, they truly believe

that they are better off than when they were with the humans. The book concludes with

the animals of the farm staring in disbelief at Napoleon and the other pigs drinking and

gambling with the neighboring human farmers. They even looked like the men. The

animals had allowed to grow the absolute dictatorship that they had cast off.

This novel reminds me very much of Orwells other novel , 1984. In it, Winston

reads a book describing the imaginary resistance to the totalitarian regime in which he

lives. It states that the three classes, (upper, middle, and lower,) are bound to be

rearranged in an obvious pattern. The middle tries to overthrow the upper by gaining

support from the lower with promises of equality. The overthrow is successful, but the

upper, formerly the middle, does not keep its promises to the lower, and the cycle begins

again. This applies in Animal Farm. The pigs, after casting off the humans, begin to

resemble them enough to be transformed into them. If it were anymore blatantly

metaphoric than it would cease to have meaning.

Animal Farm is political propaganda. It uses the animals to simplify the ideas of

totalitarian government, but not overly so. Orwell expertly uses the animals to get his

message across. A totalitarian government is always lurking in the background, waiting

for the right opportunity to take control. Initially, they will do so in the name of equality

and freedom.ANIMAL FARM
