The novel “ Animal Farm” which as written by George Orwell explained Russia’s hard times with the Soviet Union in sort of a humorous way with pigs representing Russian leaders and other farm animals representing citizens (followers).
This essay will analyze two characters, one leader (Napoleon) and one follower (Mollie) and how they in a way help destroy freedom and equality for the animals on Animal Farm.
Napoleon was a cruel and leader and was one of the main reasons freedom was lost on Animal Farm. First he was a threatening leader, often telling the animals that they didn’t want Snowball or Mr. Jones to come back. Secondly he was a very greedy person. For example he was using the windmill that the animals build for milling corn, instead of for heating and lighting for the barn, this showed that the animals were becoming his slaves. Also he was self-centered, all that he worried about was himself. A good examples are when he had his picture painted on the barn wall, changed all the commandments to suit the pigs, and moved into the house with all the other pigs. Finally he had nothing but evil goals. He wanted all the animals to be his slaves and control all of Animal Farm.
Mollie, the mare, was sort of a spoiled brat in this novel because she didn’t care about her freedom. First of all, she was self-centered like Napoleon because all she cared about was herself. One example is that she was always was late for work and left on the account that she pretented there was a stone in her foot. She only worried about material things like ribbons and sugar cubes instead of her freedom. Secondly, she depends on other too much. When Mr. Jones was there, she was living off of him giving her sugar cubes and ribbons, and even when he was gone she still depended on the other farmers. Lastly she was unreliable because later on she left Animal Farm and when to the other farm.
