The book is a direct allegory of the rise of socialism in Russia. Everything bad about the pigs is what Orwell saw as bad about communists. How you can write a paper on this book and not realise this is beyond me.

The leaders make their idea seem really great for everyone then when it goes through the guys (pigs) with the power abuse it.


It just shows the situation from a different perspective cause your looking at animals so your not thinking about how people really do that stuff untilo you think about the bigger picture.

Irony - "All animals are born equal, only some are born more equal than others" (unsure if I have quoted that 100% correctly)

Jibe at communist system in USSR at the time - whilst the common Soviet propaganda was that the lowly peasant was equal in stature to Stalin, a large number of Soviets were living in squalid poverty whilst Communist party leaders in the USSR enjoyed stately holiday homes, known as Dachas, and many other wealthy benefits

Hope that gets the mind going

Isn't it a criticism of Communism not socialism? Wasn't Orwell a socialist himself?

The pigs are meant to symbolize the leaders of the communist system in the USSR. Orwell paints the leader pigs negatively by showing how they ruthlessly pursue their own gains with disregard to "society" as whole, even despite insistence that everything they do is for the good of society as a whole. The pigs also rely on the uneducated and trusting nature of the rest of the animals and begin to accuse rivals of being "anti-society", branding these animals, like Snowball, as enemies that must be exiled. All the things that the pigs do are reminiscient (sp?) of tactics employed by leaders in the rise of communism in the Soviet Union. The book itself is a satire, so the events in the book are meant to sysmbolise and mock real world events. Orwell did the same with with 1984.

Actually, the children on the Island represent the various governments of the world, and their cannibalism of Piggy at the end demonstrates how we are doomed to repeat the cycle of violence regardless of our initial intentions.



Write that. It will get you an A for sure, dude.
