Animal Farm

             All of the characters in "Animal farm" have counterparts in real life. This book, written by George Orwell, was based on the Russian Revolution, and all the important populace of the revolution are symbolised. Some of the animals represent individuals in the Russian Revolution, and some types of animals represent different types of Russian citizens. The novel carries out much like the actual revolution. It begins with hopes of an empire where all are equal and the unfair unjust leader is thrown out. Then it moves on to where some individuals begin to take more power than is rightfully theirs. At the end the rulers have completely taken over and the kingdom is as it was under the original rulers. Many themes and issues connect with these notions and the outcome of these events has determined and changed history forever. .
             The animals in the novel assist us to relate to the Russian Revolution. Each animal has a different status or class, which determined his or her role. At the top of the status were the pigs. Each pig represented someone different in the revolution. Old Major is compared to Lenin. He was an ideologist who dreamed up a wonderful government where all the animals were equal and the humans, or the czars, were pushed out. Unfortunately his dream would never happen. Then we are left with his predecessors. The first is Snowball. Snowball believed one hundred percent in Old Majors principles. He wanted all the things Old Major wanted, such as the welfare of the animals. In the Russian Revolution his counterpart would be Trotsky. Trotsky believed and wanted the same things as Lenin, and wanted to continue what Lenin had started. .
             Napoleon was a selfish and greedy pig. He did not want to share the power or the decision-making with any other individual. This was the same for Stalin. At first Napoleon and Snowball shared the decision-making and had debates about what course of action they would take.
