Animal Farm

             Animal Farm by George Orwell served as an allegory for the Russian Revolution of 1917. "Manor Farm" (which is later re-named "Animal Farm") represented Russia during the Russian Revolution. The surrounding farms in the novel can be compared to countries surrounding Russia. In this novel the animals are trying to overthrow the humans after years of being mistreated. The animals, led by the pigs, decide to start a revolution. Slowly over time the animals gained power. The pigs in this novel end up taking advantage of the other animals. This was much like the Russian leaders during The Russian Revolution. Many characters in this book symbolized Russian leaders from the Russian Revolution. Mr. Jones was like Czar Nicholas, Old Major was compared to Vladimir Lenin, Snowball was similar to Leon Trotsky, and Napoleon was reminiscent of Joseph Stalin. .
             Mr. Jones is similar to the Russian leader Czar Nicholas who treated his people similar to how Farmer Jones treated his animals. The animal rebellion on the farm was started because Mr. Jones never took care of the animals. He always treated the animals unfairly. The animals became sick of Mr. Jones and they rebelled against him and defeated him at the Battle of Cowshed. This is like Czar Nicholas, who treated his people similar to how Farmer Jones treated his animals. The Czar made his people very mad with the way he used his power. Finally his people rebelled against him, imprisoned him, and he was eventually killed during the Civil War in Russia. Mr. Jones eventually died also, but it was not due to a war, it was due to him not taking care of himself. .
             Old Major was a boar who helped point out to the animals that no animal in England was treated properly. Old Major gave many speeches and taught songs to the farm animals about hope for the future. Old Major explained to all of the animals in one of his speeches: Man is the only creature that consumes without producing.
