  1. What do you discover about the character of Napoleon? (8 marks) use evidence from the extract to support your answer.

Napoleon represents Stalin in the allegory. I discover about Napoleon is a cunning person as well as a bully. He likes to use fear to scare the animals. In the extract it says “drinking of alcohol was to be punished by death” this suggests to me that he is threating the animals. This shows the power Napoleon holds over them, he is threating the animals and commanding them to do as he says. The animals seem to be bossed around a lot by him “Napoleon gave orders”; the word order is a commanding word it also shows how much control he has over the animals.  Napoleon only has power due to fear he is a director.  Overall as readers we can already see the personality of Napoleon; he seems greedy, bossy and selfish as well as controlling. He is cruel and commanding.
