Transcript of Animal Farm

Animal Farm Do you think Animal Farm's message would come across effectively to someone who knows nothing about Soviet history or the conflict between Stalin and Trotsky? What might such a reader make of the story? What character most closely resonates with your personal ideology? Why? Which character makes the least sense to you? Who The Characters Represent Mr. Jones Czar Nicholas II
Snowball Leo Trotsky
Napoleon Joeseph Stalin
Squealer Pravda (Rusian Newspaper)
Boxer Proletariat(unskilled working class)

and other metaphors...


Did you know??? Animal Farm is an allegory... For the events leading up to and during the Stalin Era But what if you didn't know all that? What if you knew nothing about Soviet history or the conflict between Salin and Trotsky? What might you make of the story? You could infer that the pigs represented politicians... they were dishonest and sneaky
they wanted power
they preyed upon the gullible society You could distinguish the themes of power, ignorance and corruption. The main themes, that "people's ignorance contributes to their political and social oppression, that societies contain individuals who seize power for their own ends, and that not all members of a society are treated equally" are illustrated through Orwell's use of different events and characters in the story. Orwell portays his themes through the characters and events in the novel. Through this language, you understand the main themes; "people's ignorance contributes to their political and social oppression, that societies contain individuals who seize power for their own ends, and that not all members of a society are treated equally." http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/74698/a_universal_message_in_george_orwells.html?cat=38 Personally, the charater I feel most closely resonates with my personal beliefs is... Mollie Just like Mollie, I feel that if I like the way some things are, I want them to stay the same. I know that just because I don't like a person, doesn't meant that everything and anything related to that person is also bad. As Mollie did, I would look for the things that made me happy and try to avoid the people that disagreed with me. I also don't care much for politics. I too, am resistant to change. The character that makes the least sense to me... BENJAMIN the donkey Benjamin's character is not as straight-forward to me as the other characters are. I am not sure why he keeps all the information to himself. I don't understand why he is so pessemistic. I don't know why he let his best friend, Boxer, work himself to death when he knew the truth all along. He is aware of what is going on, and he may even be as intelligent as the pigs, but he does nothing significant throughout the enitre story.
