Transcript of Animal Farm Chapter 9

Who was mainly concerned with Boxer's health?
Chapter 9 Summary
Boxer, being the hard worker he is, makes sure to not let his pain phase him from doing his job. The animals continue to rebuild the windmill after victory celebrations.
In April, the farm was proclaimed a Republic, with Napoleon being the unanimously elected president.
The animals find out that Snowball was the leader of the human forces and fought alongside Mr. Jones. He charged into war shouting, "Long Live Humanity,"
Boxer falls after overworking himself and Napoleon tells them that he will send Boxer to a "hospital" to take care of him.

Character analysis
With power comes selfishness.
Propaganda manipulates Society.
Naivety leads to ultimate death.

BOXER : worked at an unhealthy rate and ended up getting hurt; he was set to the slaughter house where he was killed. (represents the proletariat)
CLOVER : she continued to look out for Boxer even though he doesn't listen. (represents the women of Russia)
OLD BENJAMIN : he also looked out for Boxer verbally (represents the Russian community who have an opinion but don't speak up)
SQUEALER : continued to be Napoleon's messenger; made excuses for Boxer's execution and kept avoiding questions about him. (represents propaganda)
NAPOLEON : barely appears; sends Squealer to do his dirty work; puts pigs on top; lets pigs wear green ribbons on Sunday; he was "elected" president; made the animals say Boxer's two maxims; he made sure the pigs stayed wealthy, fat, and drunk. (represents Stalin)
MOSES : showed up after several years; kept talking about Sugar-candy Mountain. (represents the Russian Orthodox Church)

Boxer continued to work hard, even though it was unhealthy. He is warned by Clover and Old Benjamin, but he doesn't listen. >> represents how Stalin betrays the proletariat and just used them for money.
There are food shortages for everyone except the pigs. >> represents how Stalin lived in luxury while millions were suffering.
Boxer is taken by a truck that had "Horse Slaughterer and Glue Boiler" written on it. Squealer covered it up by saying that the hospital now uses that company's trucks.
At Boxer's service, Napoleon states that he paid for Boxer's medicine without a thought of the budget. >> again represents how Stalin took advantage of the proletariat.
As a whole, this chapter is allegory for Stalinism because it showed how the animals are being used for money to put towards alcohol for the pigs.
He was sent to the slaughter house instead.
