Meet the Auhtor
My name is Gina Rain Torres, I am Seventeen years old. My favorite subject in school is history. I work at Mil's Bar and grill and Shooters Wings and Things. I really enjoy animals and after high school i plan to attend Cal Polytechnic State University and graduate with a major in dairy science.
I selected George Orwell because of his inspiring past. He grew up with no father and the odds against him as a child. He had a difficult time excelling his career as a writer but I admire him for never giving up through all of the obstacles he was put through throughout his career. He went from being a dishwasher to being an inspiring literary author.

Orwell's Rhetorical Strategies
Orwell's Impact on American Literature
"Animal Farm" is an allegory reflecting the events that led to the Russian Revolution of 1917.
The novel shows the emergence and development of Soviet communism in the form of an animal fable, Animal Farm allegorizes the rise to power of the dictator Joesph Stalin. Stalin's tyrannical rule and eventual abandonment of the founding principles of the Russian Revolution are represented by the pigs' turn to violent goverment and the adaption of human traits and behaviors, the trapping of their orginal oppressors. The novel critiques the violence of the Stalinist regime against the human beings it ruled, and also points to soviet communism's violence against the human beings it ruled, and to Soviet Communism's violence against human logic, language, and ideals.
The main source of power throughout George Orwell's works result from language and the use of rhetoric. In Orwell's novel, "Animal Farm" he uses allegory, imagery, and symbolism to show the unfortunate ability to fall victim to the power of words without understanding the deeper meaning behind them. A common pattern found throughout everyone of Orwell's poems are end rhyme scheme and imagery. Orwell displays a tremendous amount of imagery throughout all of his works, both poems and novel.
End Rhyme Scheme
Orwell’s greatest influence beyond his two classic novels was as a prose stylist. He influenced the writing of prose more than anyone else in the first half of the 20th century. He developed a crisp, clear literary style that immediately and directly seized the reader’s attention. There were no frills; every word was carefully chosen for its effect. In many ways Orwell’s essays had the greatest impact on modern prose.

In Orwell's poem,
Summer-Like he describes
the summer sun and the passing of autumn. He uses imagery to describe a blue beaked bird eating from a coconut shell in a tree. He watches the bird bask in the sun. He explains the saddness he feels when he thinks of winter. He explains the bird is so peaceful and unaware of the coming of winter, which brings hawks and cold nights, the bird is unaware of his foredoomed death. Orwell also uses end rhyme scheme to appeal to the reader's senses.
In the poem,
Our Minds are Married, but we are too Young
Orwell tells a story about his young love and how the two teenagers were being supported b their parents. He uses a metaphor to describe the couple as Romeo and Juliet. The poem shifts and Orwells explain to his lover that someday they will look back at this time and laugh. He uses imagery and end rhyme scheme to show that their love is undying and will endure forever.
