For my book report, I read the book “Animal Farm” by George Orwell. It was a wonderful book with a hidden meaning. I was surprised at the powerful message this book sent.
The setting of the book is November 1943 on Manor farm. The main characters are Jones the farmer, Napoleon the pig, Snowball the pig, Squealer the pig, the pack of dogs, Benjamin the donkey, boxer the hoarse, and clover the horse. Some of the minor characters include the sheep herd, the hens, the chickens, Mr. Pilkington the farmer, Fredrick the farmer and the crow Moses.
The story begins with a speech by Major the pig. Major was a wise and respected pig, so everyone was willing to miss an hour or so of sleep to hear a midnight speech in a
secrit meeting. He starts of by informing them all that he had had a strange dream, and he would discuss it later but now, he wanted to say something else. He told them that he was a very old pig who probably wouldn’t be
around for much longer. He said that he felt it was his duty to share some of the wisdom he had acquired in his lifetime. His words were as follows…
“Now, comrades, what is the nature of this life of ours? Let us face it: Our lives
Part 4: ThemeIn the book "Animal Farm" by George Orwell, there are many themes. The farm they now lived on would be theirs and would no longer be called Manor farm, but Animal farm. From then on"Beasts of England" was their battle cry and anthem. We don"tmt take the time to research and find out about that option as well as others that have not been presented to us. For the day we all must labour,Though we die before it break;Cows and horses, geese and turkeys,All must toil for freedom"tms sake. The life of an animal is misery and slavery: that is the plain truth"He went on to tell them of the horrible death that awaits all of them. All animals were friends and comrades, no animal of less or more important that another. The second is the argument over the windmill, a character vs. Yet no animal knew exactlyhowclose the rebellion was. I will name a few of these themes here. Napoleon did not want a windmill; he said it would never work and the animals would labor to hard making it. They wanted to work and know what it felt like to actually work as a team and receive the fruits of their labors. The Seven CommandmentsWhatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.
