He, Napoleon, and Squealer had organized a system for the animals to follow. Textual Evidence Commentary Snowball comes up with the 7 commandments and paints them on the side of the barn. Snowball begins to teach the other animals on the farm how to read and write. After the Battle of the Cowshed, Snowball, Boxer, and a sheep are given awards for their bravery. Snowball starts making and drawing plans for the windmill. Snowball is chased off the farm by Napoleon's dogs. "Snowball was a more vivacious pig than Napoleon, quicker in speech and more inventive, but was not considered to have the same depth of character. "These three had elaborated old Major's teachings into a complete system of thought, to which the game the name of Animalism. Pg. 16 Pg. 16 Setting Characters Involved Direct Characterization Text Evidence At now called Animal Farm. 3 months after old Major had died, the morning after the animals ran Mr. Jones off the farm (Midsummer Day) Squealer, Napoleon "They explained that by their studies of the past three months the pigs had succeeded in reducing the principles of Animalism to Seven Commandments." Pg.24 This is direct because Snowball had helped create the 7 commandments and was the one to paint them on the side of the barn. He is taking on leadership traits. Setting Characters Involved Direct Characterization Text Evidence Setting Characters Involved Direct Characterization Text Evidence Setting Characters Involves Direct Characterization Text Evidence Setting Characters Involved Indirect Characterization Text Evidence The Guard Dogs, Napoleon This is indirect because Napoleon's dogs had been the reason Snowball ran off the farm. Napoleon knew he wasn't going to win the debate and knew Snowball was well liked. He took out the competition. The dogs, Muriel, Benjamin, Clover, Boxer, and the other animals that could read or write. Animal Farm This is direct because Snowball had formed the Animal Committees and had been the one teaching the animals to write. It shows Snowball wants others to learn and understand what the rules are. "Snowball also busies himself with organizing the other animals into what he called Animal Committees. He was indefatigable at this. Pg.32 "The reading and writing classes, however, were a great success. By the autumn almost every animal on the farm was literate to some degree. Pg. 32 Animal Farm, October 12th Mr. Jones, his men, Boxer, and one of the sheep This is indirect because the animals had decided unanimously that the bravest animals should be rewarded. This showed Snowball is brave and cares about Animal Farm, and the other animals knew that. "The animals decided unanimously to create a military decoration, "Animal Hero, First Class" which was conferred there and then on Snowball and Boxer." Pg.44 Early-Mid Winter Napoleon This is direct because Snowball was the one who came up with the idea of a windmill, and brought it up in front of the farm. This shows he wants the animals to have easier lives and be more technologically advanced. "The animals had never heard of anything of this kind before, and they listened in astonishment while Snowball conjured up pictures of fantastic machines which would do their work for them while they grazed at their ease in the filed or improved their minds with reading and conversation. Pg.48-49 Animal Farm, Mid-winter, during on of the debates. "By the time he had finished speaking, there was no doubt as to which way the vote would go. But just at that moment Napoleon stood up and uttered a high-pitched whimper of a kind no one had ever heard him utter before. Pg.52 Commentary Snowball acts like a leader from the beginning, but isn't dictating. He has a lot more ideas and is more outgoing than Napoleon, who is more reserved. Snowball is acting and thinking more like a leader, taking responsibility for certain things. Commentary Snowball helped create the 7 commandments, which is the established set of rules for the animals. This shows that he is establishing a leadership role and showing the animals right from wrong. Commentary Snowball is creating committees and classes for the animals to take. This shows how much he cares about the well being of the other farm animals. He wants the farm to flourish, and is educating the animals so everyone is equal. Commentary Snowball is brave and risked dying for the good of the farm. He showed his loyalty to the farm and the other animals. If the leader is willing to risk their life, others will follow. Other animals will look back at this in the future and know he was loyal. Commentary The windmill is the reason Snowball and Napoleon argue and fight so much. Snowball persuaded the animals to want the windmill to be built. This turns out to be the reason he is chased off the farm, though. Commentary After arguing with Napoleon, Snowball is attacked and chased off the farm. Snowball would have won the vote during the debate, but won't come back to the farm because of the dogs. The system in which the farm is run will change, and is the turning point in the story. Snowball, Round Dynamic Character. He develops throughout the story, and we have a good detailed image of him in our minds. He has to face a conflict (leading the farm, battling Napoleon).
