Thank you so much for listening!
Animal Farm Chapter 10 Analysis
In the end, when the pigs and humans sit and drink together, it symbolizes that the farm is exactly how it was before. Before, the farm was torturous because the owner abused the animals. Later, the pigs that lead the farm ended up abusing the other animals too, just like the previous human owners. Napoleon, the farm dictator, even decide to change the name of "Animal Farm", back to "Manor Farm".
As the pigs and humans drink together, it also shows that the pigs are more like humans. They drink alcohol, sleep in beds, and they eat with silverware.
Key Scene
In George Orwell’s novella, “Animal Farm”, the key scene in chapter ten is when there is hardly any difference between the pigs and the humans. After Mr. Pilkington’s speech, Napoleon only had one comment to make, that Mr. Pilkington had called the farm “Animal Farm”, and Napoleon thought it should be called “‘The Manor Farm’ -which, he believed, was its correct and original name” (Orwell 96). This shows that Napoleon is becoming more and more like Mr. Jones, a human, and is now officially the dictator of the farm. The pigs are also talking and drinking with the humans, and playing cards with them, and becoming more human-like. The scene is the most important in the chapter because it shows how Napoleon has taken over the farm and has become so human-like that the other animals cannot tell the difference between pig and human.

Real-life Comparison
The Soviet Union
By: Ian, Jessica, Kayla, Kishan, and Estelle...
Vocabulary word: Morose
Dictionary Definintion: (adj.) sullen and ill-tempered.

In my own words: irritable mood, and grumpy

"Only old Benjamin was much the same as ever, except for being a little greyer about the muzzle, more morose and tacturn as ever" (Orwell 87)

Explanation in which the word is used in the actual text: After Boxer's death, Benjamin became sullen and very reserved. As shown in the book, Benjamin is grumpy and mysterious most of the time, making cryptic remarks and muttering under his breath.
Animal Farm
The pigs were the educated middle class because they were smart and overthrew Mr. Jones (Tsar)
Most of the animals on the farm
Most animals on the farm were like proletariats because most animals had none or low
education and believed the propaganda Napoleon (Stalin) used.
Mr. Pilkington is Churchill because Napoleon sides with Pilkington just like Stalin with England after the attack led by humans (In the Soviet Union's case it was Soviet Union getting attacked by Hitler).
Napoleon and Stalin both ruled as harsh dictators, assassinated to earn power, and ruled using propaganda, and even changed records.
Squealer represents propaganda because he uses it to convince the animals, or proletariats, to do or think certain things.
Post World War Two
Making of weaponry
In the Animal Farm movie, Napoleon ordered the developing of weapons just like the Post World War Two
Chapter Summary

The last chapter of the novella
Animal Farm
by George Orwell shows the farm after several years. Many of the animals on the farm are dead or forgotten. Only Moses, Benjamin, Clover, and the pigs remember the days before and of the rebellion. The farm is now more prosperous, because of the finished windmill, now used for milling corn. The original ideas of the rebellion and Old Major's wishes are distant memories. One day, Clover was startled by a horrifying sight- Squealer the pig, standing on his hind legs. Even worse, was Napoleon who, in addition to standing upright, carried a whip. The sheep break out in bleating "'Four legs good, two legs
!'" (Orwell 91). Adding insult to injury, the seven commandments were changed to read: "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others" (Orwell 92). Seven days later several neighboring farmers come in for a tour. That evening, the eavesdropping animals discover that Napoleon had changed the name of the farm back into Manor Farm, implying that the tyranny of farmer Jones was back in the form of pigs. The novella ends with Clover's poor eyesight not being to differentiate between man and swine.

Let's finish this novella off with a bang!
In the final scene, pigs and humans sit and drink together. What do the similarities between the pigs and the humans symbolize?
