Castrejon 1 Samuel Castrejon Mrs. Angus English 2 Honors 30 January 2011 Animal Farm Analysis Questions 1) The animals of the Manor Farm are not content with their daily living conditions with Mr. Jones, the farmer, as their master. Old Major, the eldest pig on the farm, claims that he has a dream that he must share with the rest of the farm. So, all the animals gather up to hear his dream, but before Old Major tells about his dream, he decides to talk about a rebellion that is bound to occur eventually. In his speech, Old Major states “Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. .. Is it not crystal clear, then, comrades, that all the evils of this life of ours spring from the tyranny of human beings” (7)? Since the animals have lived life in forced labor, Old Major’s speech sparks great enthusiasm in all the animals. When he states that Man is the only creature that doesn’t produce, the animals begin to realize that they do not need Man to succeed in living. When they come to this realization the animals then become overwhelmed with hope of a better life. Also when Old Major points out that all their qualities of their lives are because of Man the animals then realize that a rebellion is surely needed to make a better future for the entire farm. Ultimately, the speech of Old Major that points out all the qualities of the animals’ lives give hope and enthusiasm of a better future for the animals.

2) Snowball and Napoleon, the leaders of the farm after Old Major’s death, are the clear leaders because of their high intelligence but are ultimately never agree on any decision. As the rebellion was starting, each animal started to take their own role In the rebellion and then Snowball and Napoleon were described as “Napoleon was large, rather fierce-looking Berkshire boar, the only Berkshire on the farm, not much of a talker but with a reputation for getting his own way. Snowball was a more vivacious pig than Napoleon, quicker in speech and more inventive but was not considered to have the same depth of character” (11). Out of the two, Napoleon was more of the fierce leader who used his oppressing strength to his what he desires, while Snowball is a more honest and responsible leader that cares for the well being of the farm and the animals. Out of the two leaders, the animals of the farm preferred Snowball over Napoleon because Snowball has a positive desire to enhance the farm and to give the animals the best living conditions. The animals initial response to Snowball was that he was a great leader and cared greatly for the animal and farm but eventually the response to Snowball changed when Napoleon, alongside with Squealer, strategically altered each of the animals opinion of Snowball. As time went on, each animal had a different opinion of their new ruler, Napoleon, but with the help of Squealer each animal became vulnerable to Napoleon’s lies and eventually all had the same response with Napoleon as a dictator.
