Example text

He has kept well out of things; he did not believe in the revolution, nor in the hope that life would improve in any way. Here he refuses, as usual, to go and read the Commandment. How culpable is Benjamin? Is Orwell asking us to look at people like him and question their policy of letting well alone? Is Benjamin's crime one of omission? He has brains why does he not use them to guide his comrades until it is too late? Or is Benjamin rather like Orwell himself, disillusioned by revolutions and promises of Utopia, wiser by experience and not interested in the machinations of yet another aspiring tyrant?

Boxer is 'the admiration of everybody' and Benjamin is a cynic - what does Orwell mean to suggest by their behaviour here? If Boxer had not used up his strength and Benjamin had been less of an outsider, would things have been different? When considering the themes of the book these contrasts between characters are important and are obviously intended as a comment upon human nature and those elements within it which affect the direction society takes . After a description of the way the animals work we hear about Sunday when there is no work but the outcome of the revolution is implicit in the meetings where , we learn, 'it was always the pigs who put forward the resolutions' and hear that Snowball and Napoleon can never agree.

They are deeply shocked that Snowball should do such a thing . Allegory The building of the windmill represents Stalin's first Five Year Plan, which was a failure. This plan was over-ambitious and there were serious 35 difficulties such as lack of materials, skilled labour and transport, represented by the difficulties the animals have building the windmill. Failure to meet unreasonable targets and every failure within the plan was often treated as sabotage - just as Napoleon, not wanting to be responsible for the destruction of the windmill and being unwilling to admit that it was not strong enough to withstand the gale, blamed Snowball for its ruin.
