Animal Farm 30 Essay

1308 words - 6 pages

The book Animal Farm was written in 1943 in London, England. It was first published on August 17th, 1945, by Martin Secker & Warburg; a year later it was published by Harcourt Brace and Company in New York. It has 10 chapters, and about 95 pages. It was written by the great George Orwell, who fought in the Spanish civil war of 1936. After the war, Orwell spent most of his time speaking out against communism which is “ A political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs,” (Google dictionary). Animal Farm was written to criticize the events ...view middle of the document...

He wrote books such as Animal Farm to educate readers about the corruption that power can lead to. Animal farm brought together themes such as power, education and class conflict. By using barnyard animals in this book, Orwell demonstrated a century’s worth of knowledge; revealing mistakes that leaders have made throughout history and how these mistake can corrupt communities. The book shows the way in which corrupt figures manipulate power for selfish reasons, Lord Acton, son of Sir Ferdinand Dalberg-Acton stated that “Power corrupts but absolute power corrupts absolutely,” (letter to bishop Creighton-1887). Acton is saying that having power can corrupt someone’s judgment and the way in which they treat others. This can be seen in the book, when napoleon refuses to have debates for the animals to express their opinions; it violates the commandment that “all animals are equal.” This develops and demonstrates class conflict in the novel; George Orwell has many thoughts and opinions about the working class and their lack of potential. He states, “I often praised the working class for their stoicism and hard work- but never for their intelligence or leadership. To my mind, workers were not just ordinary people whose education limited their intellectual horizons, they were inherently mentally inferior” (Pearce 47). The pigs placed themselves above the other animals because they saw themselves as the mastermind behind the farm’s success. Education and occupation will always be the push factors of class conflict, because educated individuals like the pigs are always the ones who manipulate the working class (farm animals) causing them to work even harder. Karl Marx stated that “The ideas of the ruling class are in every epoch the ruling ideas, i.e. the class which is the ruling material force of society, is at the same time its ruling intellectual force. The class which has the means of material production at its disposal has control at the same time over the means of mental production, so that thereby, generally speaking, the ideas of those who lack the means of mental production are subject to it. The ruling ideas are nothing more than the ideal expression of the dominant material relationships, the dominant material relationships grasped as ideas,” (the German ideology).  The pigs owned the means of mental production so they had the control over the working class; the rules given to the other dumb animals are nothing but ideal expressions, because they think that the pigs are always right.
The characters in the book reflect real life examples of hose with power and control. The pigs represented the communist government and are the ones that become corrupted. Old Major who first opened the eyes of the other animals about animal oppression, represents Karl Marx the “Father of Communism.” Snowball is a...
