How far would you agree that Animal Farm is, as Orwell describes it, 'A Fairy Story'?
There are several techniques George Orwell (GO) used, to determine what type of book he wanted to portray Animal Farm as being.
Animal Farm is an allegory of the Russian revolution and the rise of Stalin in the Soviet Union. GO is satirical towards Communism; he politically attacks it in the form of humour, by use of animals. He presents different characters in the farm as the key figures of communism. Tsar Nicholas II is represented by Mr. Jones, who at the beginning of the book is the dictator of the 'farm'. Lenin and Karl Marx are both represented by Old Major, the oldest animal on the farm who soon dies; he is the one that actually pumps into the animals and heads the idea of overtaking the farm. Trotsky, the one that completes what Lenin was targeting to do, and turns Animal Farm into a democracy, is represented by Snowball, also a pig. Stalin, the one who takes over the 'farm' and turns it back to its original status, (back into a dictatorship, whereby he is now the dictator), is represented
