A View of Snowball in 'Animal Farm'.

Extracts from this document...


A View of Snowball Snowball in the beginning showed that he was a more intelligent pig then Napoleon. He was a good orator; he could easily convince people he was right. Snowball together with Napoleon lead the revolution and became `leaders' when the revolution succeeded. Snowball was a visionary leader. He was inventive and planned to improve life for the animals, he wanted to change and improve. Snowball was the one who wrote and thought of the seven commandments. This shows us that he really wants a new and better life for the animals. Snowball and Napoleon could never agree in something, they were always involved in big debates and quarrels between each other. Snowball was intelligent; he was the first one to think about the animal committees. ...read more.


He (together with the other pigs) is taking advantage of the other animals, Snowball is becoming human. Every day Snowball becomes more like a human, he is robbing the animals of what should be shared between them. Snowball is also a very brave pig. He fought bravely during the counter-revolution. Snowball planned the entire defensive operation. He gave orders with allot of planning. His plans were perfect and very ingenious; Snowball is a very tactical, calculated and smart general. Not only does Snowball plan an attack but he also fights in it. He acts in the front line not in the back, he actually leads the attack this shows that he is brave. Snowball again shows that he is a brave pig when he attacks Jones the only human being armed with a fire weapon. ...read more.


Another evidence that he is a good general is when he manages to run away from Napoleon's dogs. Even though Snowball was a visionary leader he was too happy and motivated to do his job and improve animal life that he failed to see the inevitable. He should have imagined what Napoleon was going to use the puppies for, he should have taken precautions. Snowball should have been more political and diplomatic in his dealings with Napoleon. Snowball was naive not to know that sooner or later Napoleon would try to take full control. He read Julius Caesar he should have associated Brutus with Napoleon and taken more care. He should be a great friend with Squealer. If he had Squealers unconditioned loyalty, Squealer could convince the Animals that Napoleon was to blame and not Snowball. Snowball should have made a truce with the sheep and not ignored them. ...read more.
