Animal Farm

George Orwell

Summary

It started on the manor farm. Old Major gathered all the animals in the farm. He told then about his dream he had the night before. All the animals controlling the Manor Farm, and maybe even the world. Old Major died just three days later leaving three young pig in control to fulfill old majors last wish. Snowball, Napoleon and Squealer. They immediately take action and start transforming the farm into their own. the owner of the farm, usually drunk sees whats happening and tries to stop it. but snowball and napoleon were ready for anything. Snowball has the idea of building a windmill to produce electricity and takes immediate action. napoleon isn't fond of the idea. He drives Snowball off the farm and takes over.

In the end i thought this was a very interesting book. I can connect some of the events from the book to modern society. such as bullying, dictatorship and so on. i loved this book a lot and recommend it to everyone.


Quote

"I will work harder"

- This is important in the story because all the animals work extremely hard. Especially Boxer. The horse, he works until death for Napoleon.

Beasts Of England

Beasts of England, beasts of Ireland,
Beasts of every land and clime,
Hearken well and spread my tidings
Of the golden future time

Soon and late the day is coming,
Tyrant Man shall be o'erthrown,
And the fruitful fields of England
Shall be trod by beasts alone

Rings shall vanish from our noses,
And the harness from our back,
Bit and spur shall rust forever,
Cruel whips no more shall crack

Riches more than mind can picture,
Wheat and barley, oats and hay,
Clover, beans, and mangel-wurzels
Shall be ours upon that day

Bright will shine the fields of England,
Purer shall its waters be,
Sweeter yet shall blow its breezes
On the day that sets us free

For that day we all must labour,
Though we die before it break;
Cows and horses, geese and turkeys,
All must toil for freedom's sake

Beasts of England, beasts of Ireland,
Beasts of every land and clime,
Hearken well and spread my tidings
Of the golden future time
