Animal Farm Homework 3

Task: In Chapter 5, how does Orwell/Squealer use language devices to show the other animals that there is nothing wrong with what Napoleon did, and there is nothing wrong with Animal Farm? I will use PEAL to express my points and views on this task.

Orwell uses language devices and sophisticated language to overwhelm the animals with information to sympathize with Napoleon expelling Snowball out of Animal Farm. Orwell uses Squealer as the mouthpiece for this.

“Suppose you had decided to follow Snowball, with his moonshine of windmills–Snowball, who, as we now know, was no better than a criminal?”  “I trust that every animal here appreciates the sacrifice that Comrade Napoleon has made in taking this extra labour upon himself. Do not imagine, comrades, that leadership is a pleasure! On the contrary, it is a deep and heavy responsibility.” This is evidence that Orwell did use sophisticated language to challenge the animals thoughts on Snowball and Napoleon.

“Moonshine of windmills” is a adjective and is sophisticated language. I think the reason why Orwell used sophisticated language was to mess with the minds of the animals so they would believe Napoleon is the true leader for Animal Farm. I trust that every animal here appreciates the sacrifice that Comrade Napoleon has made in taking this extra labour upon himself ” is also another tactic of Squealer’s to embrace Napoleon as a true leader and Snowball as a outcast. However this quote from the book  “Surely, comrades, you do
not want Jones back” shows how Orwell is always referencing Mr Jones (the dictator of Manor Farm) and how the pigs are becoming more human than they were before. Is this a sign that Napoleon is more of importance than any other animal?

Animal Farm Homework 2

Question: Does Animal Farm have an implied reader? Select at least three quotations from text to show.

I think that Animal Farm does have an implied reader and I think the implied reader was people living in the Russian Communism. I think George Orwell indirectly attacked the Russians through Animal Farm. George Orwell (author of Animal Farm) uses Mr Jones as a dictator and the animals as the people with no voice who want a classless society, so people can live equally. However in their multitudes, the animals overpower Mr Jones and create their own society.

Quote 1: “Misery and slavery: that is the plain truth.” This quote is from chapter one, where old Major, (the prize boar), is giving a speech on overthrowing and overpowering the humans. This is just like the Russian Communism, how people back then, were not enjoying life.

Quote 2: “Why, work night and day, body and soul, for the overthrow of the human race!” This is also from chapter one. You can see that old Major clearly wants to overthrow the humans from this quote. Another example we could use for an implied reader is the Uprising of slavery in America. The slaves hated the way they were treated and major figures like Harriet Tubman and others, helped get slavery abolished. Old Major is interpreted in animal Farm as a Harriet Tubman and Winston Churchill, a leader.

Quote 3: “All animals are equal.” This is also from Old Major’s speech. A classless society, a equal society.

Animal Farm Homework 1

Task: Turn a part of your novel or Animal Farm into a comic/script/poem.

This poem is from chapter 1 of Animal Farm, where old Major is giving a speech about rebelling against the humans.

Poem: Rebellion against Humans!

‘Fellow comrades we must come together

Unless you want the human race to rule forever

Is our purpose just to work and eat a small amount of food?

And yet that puts us in a bad mood’

 

‘Why should we let these pity beings use us as slaves

And they eat and eat for the rest of their days

When we become tired and old

They will either slaughter us or we will be sold’

 

‘We are, we are, we are the animals of Animal Farm

Let us rebel without alarm

We are, we are, we are the animals of Animal Farm

And we will rule the humans and the entire farm!’
