Animal Farm is the 1945 novel by English author George Orwell (real name: Eric Blair) that allegorically describes the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the dictatorship of Joseph Stalin. Written during the Second World War, when England was allied with the USSR, the novel grew out of Orwell’s hated of totalitarianism and has quickly become one of the most influential novels of the last 60 years.
Animal Farm's Story Line
Animal Farm tells the story of the animals on Manor Farm. They are:
- Old Major (a stand in for Karl Marx) - Dreams of a utopian world leads the other animals to revolt against Mr. Jones, the farmer.
- Snowball (Trotsky) - Begins the revolution of equality for all animals
- Napoleon (Stalin) - Begins the revolution for equality for all animals
Napoleon and Snowball develop the system of Animalism, which they use to forbid human vices, although the leading pigs soon adopt human ways. The revolutionary ideas of Old Major are distilled into the slogan “Four legs good, two legs bad.”
Animal Farm's Conclusion
After a power struggle in which Snowball is driven out by the dogs, Napoleon assumes dictatorship over Animal Farm, entering into agreements with the neighboring human farmers. Slowly, Napoleon takes on the characteristics of a man, and in the end, the pigs are indistinguishable from the humans.
