Introduction

Animal Farm by George Orwell Essay Question Melissa Nicole Teoh 1/12 (15) Which incident in the noel has affected you the most deeply? Remember to refer closely to your chosen incident in explaining why you feel as you do. The incident of the pig's party with Men has affected me the most deeply.
