3. What foreshadowing do you notice at the beginning of Chapter Nine? What does this foreshadow for Boxer?
4. How does foreshadowing enhance a piece of literature? For Animal Farm, how does Orwell’s use of foreshadowing add to the mood of the novel? Does it make you more sympathetic towards the animals and their plight? Why or why not?
1. How does the main character change throughout the story? What do you think causes the change? What does this story say about society in general? In what ways does this story remind you of people you have known or experiences you have had in your own life?
2. How successful was the author in creating good literature? Support your response with examples form the story.
Use the quote from the story. How does this quotation relate to the elements of the story such as characters or theme?
“Throughout the spring and summer they worked a sixty-hour week, and in August Napoleon announced that there would be work on Sunday afternoons as well.” (44)

3. In Chapter Six, Napoleon begins to reintroduce humans and human behavior to the farm. To justify the pigs’ actions, one of the Commandments is altered. As a leader, Napoleon has become more and more unethical and distrustful. Using examples from chapters five and six, explore the evidence that Napoleon is quickly turning into a tyrant over Animal Farm. Use direct quotes to support your response in a well-written, cohesive five-paragraph essay.
