Reading report about Animal Farm by George Orwell, containing information on characters, style, theme and plot in the questions/answer format followed by a discursive essay: What is the main theme of the novel? How does the writer develop this? Do different characters represent different ideas? With which does the writer seem to sympathise most? Are similar situations found in the novel showing different aspects of the theme? Is there any use of symbolism or direct comment by the author?
(...) Furthermore, we can see that most of the events that take place in Animal farm can be directly associated with real events. The writer follows the chronological order in narrating these events. For example, Snowball's and Napoleon's power struggle is a direct allegorical representation of Trotsky's and Stalin's. Frederick's trade agreement with Napoleon, and his subsequent breaking of the agreement, represents the Molotov-Ribbentrop non-aggression pact that and the following Battle of the Windmill represents World War II itself. It seems that Orwell held the pessimistic belief that totalitarianism was inevitable : we can notice it from the narrator and the character of Benjamin's participation in the story.
Looking more closely at the characters, we can see how the ruling class of the regime is pictured. The pigs claim the right to rule Animal farm on the basis of their superiority; they are much more clever than the other animals and for this reason they must receive higher compensation for their contribution (in terms of food and comfort). But actually it is pure nonsense, because the rest of the animals that are occupied in hard physical work would have an equal right with the pigs, but none of them is in the position to question the established order. This states obviously, how totalitarianism can be hidden in the form of a way they achieve an utopian world, a greater good.
Again, Orwell is willing to show in which way communism failed to be implemented, the ending of the novel is clearly the flaw of the message Animal farm is trying to get through (...)
