The first 200 words of this essay...
By George Orwell
"Animal Farm" is George Orwell's rendition of the Russian Revolution
in a smaller scale using an English farm to represent the country of
Russia. At the start of the book, the animals are discussing how much
they dislike their current farm master, Mr. Jones. Mr. Jones is the
owner of Manor Farm, the farm on which all the animals live, and he
represents the Russian Czar regime.
The animals begin to discuss ways that they can overthrow Mr. Jones. Their discussions represent views that are similar to those of the organizations and people attempting to overthrow the Czar government in Russia prior to the Russian Revolution. During the book, some of the main leaders of the farm
animals show signs of similarity to prominent leaders in Russia. One
of the leaders fighting for power, Napoleon, displays similarities to
Joseph Stalin and another, Snowball, is similar to Leon Trotsky. Each
one of these animal leaders shows similarities in behavior and actions
to their Russian counterparts.
As the book continues, the animals are able to overthrow Mr. Jones and take control
