Transcript of Animal Farm
-The Animal Farm (Manor Farm) is where the action of the story is taking place.
-The story is taking place in the country side of England.
-Some of the time it is cold and rainy, but the weather does change during the story.
-Society operates the story a lot; you can tell this because the farmers around Napoleon influence him, making him change his mind and the story.
-The daily life of the characters are to work hard and get very little or no food.
-The mood of the story depends on the animal, but from my point of view it is sad and upsetting.
Old Major has a dream.
Napoleon's "army" of dogs run Snowball off of the farm.
Napoleon becomes the leader.
The 7th Commandment "All animals are equal." turns into "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."
The other farm animals can't tell the difference between pig to man, or man to pig.
Boxer is a static character because he believes that "Napoleon is always right" and believes that the entire story. He also believes all animals are equal with no exception.
Boxer's motivated to help the Animal Farm to grow and prosper. Boxer cares about all the animals on Animal Farm and Animal Farm itself. Boxer is driven by his strength because he knows he is the strongest one there and his loyalty to the pigs.
Mollie is a static character because she never changed her mind about people, sugar, and ribbons.
""Mollie! Look me in the face. Do you give your word of honour that that man was not stroking your nose?"
"It isn't true!" repeated Mollie, but she could not look Clover in the face, and the next moment she took to her heels and galloped away into the field.
A thought struck Clover. Without saying anything to the others, she went to Mollie's stall and turned over the straw with her hoof. Hidden under the straw was a little pile of lump sugar and several bunches of ribbon of different colours."
The animals that do all the work get little food and little education about what is going on around them. This conflict is an external conflict.
Most of the animals on the farm are not thinking or not smart enough to realize the circumstances they are up against. They can die and there is a chance of Animalism collapsing. This conflict is an external conflict.
The animals on the farm are facing against Napoleon, his dogs, and the other pigs. The conflict is an external conflict.
The farm animals are going against what they believe in, even though they don't realize it. This conflict is an internal conflict.
Mollie only cares about her looks, ribbons, sugar lumps, and people to pet and groom her. She wants these thing's so bad that she will go against Animalism to get them.
Old Major teaches the other animals the words to "Beasts of England".
All of the animals love the song.
Old Major dies
The rebellion against man
The 7 Commandments are made
Introduce their flag; a green tablecloth with the symbols of a hoof and horn in white.
Make an easier version of the 7 Commandments for the sheep:"Four legs good, two legs bad".
Napoleon took away Jessie and Bluebell's puppies.
Snowball and Napoleon sent out pigeons to neighboring farms to spread the word about rebellion.
Mr, Pilkington and Mr. Frederick spread rumors about the Animal Farm.
The Battle of the Cowshed
Mollie runs away.
Snowball makes plans for a windmill.
The pigs live in the farmhouse and sleep in beds.
The windmill is crushed and in ruins.
Napoleon sells things to humans. Plus the windmill is rebuilt.
Napoleon slaughters any animal that was "with" Snowball or against him.
Napoleon banishes everyone from singing "Beasts of England".
Minimus writes a poem for Napoleon.
Frederick and some of his men come back to the Animal Farm and blow up the windmill named after Napoleon, "Napoleon Mill".
Napoleon starts drinking whiskey, and gets drunk.
Napoleon announces the Animal Farm to be a Republic.
Boxer was hurt and dieing, go Napoleon gave him to the knacker.
Napoleon busy whiskey from selling Boxer to the knacker.
The pigs are wearing clothes and walking on their hind legs.
Squealer teaches the sheep to say "Four legs good, two legs better".
Benjamin is a static character because he never changes his attitude about the Animal Farm and life. "... he would say only "Donkeys live a long time. None of you has ever seen a dead donkey,"..."
Benjamin has no motivation, except Boxer. Boxer is the only thing he really cares about. Once Boxer is dead, Benjamin doesn't have a drive to do anything.
Clover is a static character because she never changes her outlook on thing's. "...but Clover, who thought she remembered a definite ruling against beds...".
Clover truly believes that all animals are equal and to stick to the 7 Commandments. Her drive began after Jones sold her fouls. She is loving and wouldn't hurt a fly, unless it was something or someone threatening the thing's she loves.
Muriel is a static character because she doesn't change how she thinks. "With some difficulty Muriel spelt it out. "It says, 'No animal shall sleep in a bed with sheets,'" she announced finally."
Muriel does what ever she is told. She cares about the other animals on the farm as well. She doesn't have any close friends.
The Sheep are dynamic characters because their minds change after Squealer teaches them a "new song". "...all the sheep burst out into a tremendous bleating of- "Four legs good, two legs better!..."
The Sheep don't care about anything. They just do whatever they are told to do. It is as if they don't even have their own brains.
The Cat is a static character because she never changes during the story. "Last of all came the cat, who looked round, as usual, for the warmest place, and finally squeezed herself in between Boxer and Clover..."
The Cat was only brung up several times through out the entire story. The Cat doesn't really think good or bad about anything that happened.
Old Major is a static character because he believed that all animals should be equal (basically the Commandments) for his whole life. "I do not think, comrades, that I shall be with you for many months longer, and before I die, I feel it is my duty to pass on to you such a wisdom as I have acquired."
Old Major wanted a better future for the other animals. That was all he really cared about before he died. He had a feeling he was going to die, so he passed on his wisdom.
Jones is a dynamic character because after trying to take back the farm and failing, he just learns to deal with it. "Most of this time Mr Jones had spent sitting in the taproom of the Red Lion at Willingdon...".
Jones try's to get his farm back but, he is kicked off every time. The only thing Jones cares about is his alcohol. He doesn't care for the animals. That was how the whole thing was started.
Frederick is a static character because he never changes his thinking. "...the tales about Frederick's cruelty to his own animals had been greatly exaggerated.".
Frederick is only brought up a few times during the story. The only thing he cares about is money. He owns the farm named Pinchfield.
Pinkeye is a static character because he never changes. "...Pinkeye was given the task of tasting all his food before he ate it, lest it should be poisoned.".
Pinkeye's job was to waste Napoleon's food before he ate it, in case it was poisoned. This is the only thing about Pinkeye in the story. He doesn't have any other information.
Pilkington is a static character because he never changes his attitude toward the pigs. "Mr. Pilkington, of Foxwood, had stood up, his mug in hid hand. In moment, he said, he would ask the present company to drink a toast. But before doing so, there were a few words that he felt it incumbent upon him to say.".
Pilkington is a very good speaker and gives good speeches. He wants what Napoleon has. He is the owner of the farm named Foxwood.
Mr. Whymer is a static character because he didn't change mentally or physically during the story. "Meanwhile, through the agency of Whymper, Naploeon was engaged in complicated negotiations with Frederick and Pilkington.".
Mr. Whymper wants to help the pigs get involved with society. Mr. Whymper cares about getting money for Napoleon. He has nothing better to do.
Moses is a static character because he didn't change his thinking, especially about Sugarcandy Mountain. "He claimed to know of the existence of a mysterious country called Sugarcandy Mountain, to which all animals went when they died.".
Moses is on man's side. He tricks some of the animals to believe in a magical place in the sky called Sugarcandy Mounrains. He is a pest to all the other animals.
Minimus is a static character because he doesn't change in the story. "In its place Minimus, the poet, had composed another song...".
Minimus is a poet. He writes many poems and songs about Napoleon and the Animal Farm. Writing poems is his passion.
The Hens are static characters because they act and think the sane through out the entire book. "...and the contract for eggs was increased to six hundred a week, so that that year the hens barely hatched enough chicks to keep their numbers at the same level.".
The Hens only care about their eggs. They think it's murder when Napoleon takes them away a few weeks after they are layed.
The 4 Young PORKERS
The four young porkers are static characters because they don't change during the story. "Four young porkers in the front row uttered shrill squeals of disapproval, and all four of them sprang to their feet and began speaking at once.
The four young porkers are only brought up once in the story. They want to be heard about Napoleon's decision, put Napoleon's dogs quite them down.
Napoleon is a dynamic character because we changed from believing all animals are equal. to some are more equal than others. "He was always referred to in formal style as "our Leader, Comrade Napoleon,"...".
Napoleon acted as if he was a king. He wanted to be in charge of all the animals. As soon as Napoleon tastes the power, he can't get enough of it. Jones was kicked out because he was acting like a king, but when Napoleon took leadership, he became corrupt and became a "Mr. Jones".
Snowball is a dynamic character because he changes from believing in all animals are equal to trying to destroy the Animal Farm. "Do you know the enemy who has come in the night and overthrown our windmill? SNOW BALL!".
Snowball thinks every animal is equal. He fights for what he believes in. Snowball believes in Animalism.
Squealer is a static character because he never changes his out look in thing's. "I warn every animal on this farm to keep his eyes very wide open. For we have reason to think that some of Snowball's secret agents are lurking among us at this moment!""
Squealer is very good at giving speeches. He is basically Napoleon's assistant. He does what ever Napoleon tells him to do.
The Pigeons are static characters because they never change their minds through out the story. "Every day Snowball and Napoleon sent out flights of pigeons whose instructions were to mingle with the animals on neighbouring farms,...".
The Pigeons want to spread Animalism to the other farms. They just listen to Napoleon and do want ever he tells them to do.
The Puppies are dynamic characters because before they were taken away from their mothers, they were good, but after Napoleon "taught" them, they became vicious. "At this there was a terrible baying sound outside, and nine enormous dogs wearing brass-studded collars came bounding into the barn.".
The Puppies were taken away from Jessie and Bluebell when they were little. Napoleon taught them to be his army. he Puppies care about Napoleon, even if they don't know they aren't supposed to.
