    Who is the hero of Animal Farm?

    4 star(s)

    Boxer, Snowball and Clover seem to fit many of these interpretations of a hero. Boxer Boxer saves the farm again and again, in war and in work. He even gives his life for the farm. Boxer has the quality of a being superhero because he is the biggest and the strongest. Everyone on the farm admires Boxer and he is the inspiration to many animals, "Boxer was the admiration of everybody.", "everyone worked according to his capacity". There are many quotes in the book that relay the point of Boxer being an admiration to everyone; it proves everyone respects him.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Although 'Animal Farm' is written as a fable to what extent could it be looked at as a comment on human behaviour?

    "So in conclusion the answer to the question is yes it is possible to see the story of animal farm as a comment on human behaviour. I believe this because Orwell described all the animals in the story with terms we use to describe the behaviour of other people for example "benevolent","wise", " motherly" and "foolish". It is probably easy to see that that book dose describe the animals to be an easer way to comment on the human ways of life. If we changed all the animals to people and made the story relevant it would be very hard to think about what goes on in the story for example the battle of the windmill where all those animals were killed, and when Napoleon has lots of the animals killed in front of the other animals."

  • Compare and Contrast "Shooting an Elephant" And "A Hanging".

    "In conclusion to this essay, Orwell displays two different scenarios where killing and no value for so called 'inferior' people in the eyes of Orwell and the superintendent. It can be suggested that Orwell is trying to show people that humans an animals are not diverse and share many similarities and all should be treated equally."

  • Focusing on THREE key incidents, explore the extent to which language is an effective method of control in 'Animal Farm'.

    "In conclusion, we can say that Napoleon uses Squealer to do what he wants and he knows that Squealer can convince anyone or at least influence anyone. From what we have seen, the pen really is mightier than a sword in the Animal Farm since every time Napoleon wanted to pass on something to the animals, he used Squealer's abilities in language, to do so."
