Napoleon animal farm notes chapter by
Animal farm chapter 2 summary
This, of course, is foreshadowing for disaster. This Revolution is going downhill fast. Napoleon, whilst he might feel like death is upon him is just in the grips of a mammoth hangover caused by his overindulgence in alcohol the previous night. Things seem to be going well. Old Major suggests that they have an uprising against the lazy, resource-sucking humans and run the farm themselves. This behaviour has been paralleled to that of Stalin and his implementation of the secret police, which helped eliminate opposition through their sheer intimidation of perceived dissidents. But before the vote, Napoleon brings in the pups from before we told you to look out for them which are now all grown-up and tooth-baring and vicious and they chase Snowball out of the farm. Now it says something along the lines of not killing without cause.
Watching the pigs, as a result of the clothes and alcohol and the standing on two legs, the animals peeking through the window realize there is no difference between the pigs and the humans, and there is in fact no way to tell them apart.
The hens are told their eggs will be taken.
Read an in-depth analysis of Snowball. Boxer overexerts himself and collapses; he is ready for retirement. Again, heavy irony ensues. This behaviour has been paralleled to that of Stalin and his implementation of the secret police, which helped eliminate opposition through their sheer intimidation of perceived dissidents.
Summary of animal farm chapter 1-10
A bed is a bed after all. Jones, for example, is presented as a drunken, careless ruler, whose drinking belies the upscale impression he hopes to create with the name of his farm. No, really, glue factory, as Benjamin reads off the side of the departing van. They have fiery arguments even over issues that both of them agree on i. Major delivers a rousing political speech about the evils inflicted upon them by their human keepers and their need to rebel against the tyranny of Man. All of these characteristics become more pronounced as the novel proceeds. The pigs seem to be taking the milk and apples every day, but explain that this is only because it is their responsibility to maintain their health. Sounds Jules Verne-ish, doesnt it?
Jones is drunk. This is how Napoleon gets a head start in establishing his superiority and leadership. Continued on next page
