Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Animal Farm is a fable, in which the animals on a farm rebel against their tyrannical master and take over the administration of the farm themselves. For many of the characters and events in animal farm are parallel to the characters that took part in, and the events that followed the Russian Revolution and dictorships in general. The Definition Of Animal Farm is simple; characters are used to represent ideas on the ways of how particular types of people might behave in the real world. Animal Farm is an allegory of the Russian Revolution. I fell that both Old Major and Boxer are pivotal characters in the novel each is closely linked to the eventual fate of the concept behind Animal Farm Old Major is the leader of animal farm at the start of the book. Old Major has a dream one night and then wants to tell all the other animals about this dream he had. Old Major dream is that one day there will be a rebellion and the animals will rule the farm.

Two legs Is An Enemy Pigs, Napoleon They Employed A Human Chp 6 No Animals Shall Sleep In A Bed Pigs They Sleep In Beds Chp6 All Animals are Equal Animals Sixty Hour A Week They Had To Work Chp6 All Animals Are Equal Hens They Live In A House Old Major Dream Certainly Didn't work out because of mainly the pigs and Napoleon. This was the root of the problem the animals didn't like the privileges they were getting. These caused the downfall of Old Major's Dream. Boxer was an enormous beast. He was said to be eighteen hands high and as strong as two horses put together. The white stripe down his face gives him a stupid appearance. Boxer was passionate about animal farm and so loyal because he is fighting for his farm. Boxer is also sad, regretful kind respectful and responsible. This was because his tremendous muscles always pulled them through. Boxer was the admiration of everybody. He had been a hard worker even in Jones time but now he seemed more like three horses in one. There were days when the entire work of the farm seemed to rest upon his mighty shoulders. Napoleon accused boxer of being one of snowball agents but boxer did not seem to see anything wrong he did not understand. Boxer respected Napoleon and decided he would work harder. ...read more.

Conclusion

The animals were not too happy at this but had to go with it. When the hospital workers came to pick up Boxer. Benjamin seen that on the side of the van it said Slaughter. The animals tried to warn Boxer but he was too weak to kick the door down. Napoleon tried to cover this up by saying that the van used to be owned by the slaughter. But this was not true. Napoleon did this to get money from the slaughters. Napoleon did not care about the others. Orwell makes us feel real sorrow for Boxer as Napoleon Doesn't really care for Boxer. Squeeler was told to say by Napoleon " My Deepest distress of this misfortune to one of the most loyal workers." This is not true Napoleon would have came up if he cared. This Coursework now shows how the animals struggled through their lives with there three different leaders. The animals had a difficult life leading through death hatred and starvation. It also shows that during the Russian Revolution Life was hell with the leaders killing each other. These two animals show what we try to do in life. Orwell tried to show us what was happening in the Russian Revolution. The Russian leaders were just interested in themselves and having a wonderful life while the Russian Citizens were living a life of terror. The Russian Leaders did not even care really about them. This is what Orwell tried to show us. ...read more.
