Brief Animal Farm Review

Uploaded by thefifthangel on Sep 24, 2006

Animal Farm, was written by George Orwell to make people aware of the truth about Communism and dictatorships. Apparently, George Orwell “sweated” over writing the book, and it is said he did not find it easy. However, George Orwell felt that he had a responsibility to write “Animal Farm” as an alarm call to Britain and the world.

Animal Farm consists of 10 chapters.

The first chapter sets the scene and introduces the main characters to us. In this chapter, we see the insightful vision of Major and the way the old boar foreshadows everything that will happen in the book—except for one very crucial thing that will be evidently shown to readers in later chapters.

Just as after the Russian revolution, other countries attacked the new state because they were fearful of revolutionary feelings spreading to their own people, so the neighboring farmers, Frederick and Pilkington, along with Mr. Jones, attack Animal Farm. However, led by the tactically astute Snowball, the invaders are driven off skillfully by the animals and the chapter ends with the animals celebrating their crushing victory over the humans.

Chapter 5 signifies a change...
