  1. 1. Snowball and Napoleon’s Symbols By: Brittany and Zoe Edited by: Jarrett and Robbie
  2. 2. Setting <ul><li>Animal Farm </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Manor Farm </li></ul><ul><li>The cycle of changing the name of the farm symbolizes the community’s change in their way of living and how the difference between pigs and humans isn’t so much apart. In the beginning of the story, the farm is based metaphorically on a dictatorship because Mr. Jones took full control and greed over the animals. As the story continues, the reader discovers the cycle. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Human’s Farmhouse <ul><li>The farmhouse is significant because it represents the human’s treacherous habits and ways of living. The animals are determined to wipe out the human race from their farm, but the farmhouse remains as a museum and reminder of what they have overcome. Over time however, the pigs moved into the farmhouse which made them superior to other animals. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Barn <ul><li>The Barn is the animals’ shelter which contains the seven commandments. They can constantly refer to it if they have any questions of the pig’s actions. The barn only houses the average animal, not superior animals like dogs and pigs. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Animal Farm’s Flag The animal farm flag is a symbolism for their hope and freedom as a community. It shows England how they have defeated the humans. The color, green, in the flag represents the green fields of England. The hoof and the horn signify the future Republic of the Animals.
  6. 6. Windmill <ul><li>The windmill shows significance through the animals actions on building it without human assistance. With determination, cooperation, and hard work they completed the great contraption. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Whip <ul><li>The whip Napoleon carries in his trotter symbolizes the return of the humans’ behaviors to the farm. The whip is all of the bad things the animals tried to get rid of by revolting, yet it is back, only this time it is carried by a different master. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Battle of Cowshed <ul><li>The animals are prepared for a battle long before the humans ever expect it. With the help of Snowball’s clever thinking they win their freedom and ownership of the farm. This battle signifies the hard work and obstacles they will overcome to maintain their freedom in the future. </li></ul>
  9. 9. The Battle of the Windmill <ul><li>Fredrick and his men brutally attack after blowing up the windmill. Being unprepared for battle, the animals have a hard time trying to defeat the intruders. Weary and bleeding, they eventually prevail. </li></ul><ul><li>In destroying the animals windmill the humans were destroying their success as individuals and their drive to continue. This signifies how all their hard work was abolished, yet they leave victorious in the end. </li></ul>
  10. 10. COMRADE NAPOLEON <ul><li>Friend of the fatherless! Fountain of happiness! </li></ul><ul><li>Lord of the swill-bucket ! </li></ul><ul><li>Oh how my soul is on </li></ul><ul><li>Fire when I gaze at thy. </li></ul><ul><li>to be like the sun and the sky </li></ul><ul><li>Comrade Napoleon! </li></ul><ul><li>Though our the giver of </li></ul><ul><li>All that thy creatures love, </li></ul><ul><li>Full belly twice a day, </li></ul><ul><li>Clean straw to roll upon; </li></ul><ul><li>Every beast great or small </li></ul><ul><li>Sleeps at peace in his stall, </li></ul><ul><li>Though watches over all, </li></ul><ul><li>Comrade Napoleon! </li></ul><ul><li>Had I a sucking-pig, </li></ul><ul><li>Ere he had grown as big </li></ul><ul><li>Even as a pint bottle or a rolling pin; </li></ul><ul><li>He should have learned Calm </li></ul><ul><li>and in commanding eye, </li></ul><ul><li>Faithful and true to thee, </li></ul><ul><li>Yes, his first squeak should be, </li></ul><ul><li>“ Comrade Napoleon!” </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Beast of England, beast of Ireland, Beast of every land and clime, </li></ul><ul><li>Hearken to my joyful tidings </li></ul><ul><li>Of my golden future time. </li></ul><ul><li>Soon or late the day is coming, </li></ul><ul><li>Tyrant Man shall be o’erthrown, </li></ul><ul><li>And the fruitful fields of England </li></ul><ul><li>Shall be trod by beast alone. </li></ul><ul><li>Rings shall vanish from our noses, </li></ul><ul><li>And the harness from our back, </li></ul><ul><li>Bit and spur shall rust forever, </li></ul><ul><li>Cruel whips no more shall crack. </li></ul><ul><li>Riches more than mind can picture, </li></ul><ul><li>Wheat and barley, oats and hay, </li></ul><ul><li>Clover, beans, and mangel-wurzels </li></ul><ul><li>Shall be ours upon that day. </li></ul><ul><li>Bright will shine the field of England, </li></ul><ul><li>Purer shall its waters be, </li></ul><ul><li>Sweeter yet shall blow its breezes </li></ul><ul><li>On the day that sets us free. </li></ul><ul><li>For that day we all must labour, </li></ul><ul><li>Though we die before it break; </li></ul><ul><li>Cows and horses, geese and turkeys, </li></ul><ul><li>All must toil for freedom’s sake. </li></ul><ul><li>Beast of England, beast of Ireland, </li></ul><ul><li>Beast of every land and clime, </li></ul><ul><li>Hearken to my joyful tidings ggg </li></ul><ul><li>Of my golden future time. </li></ul>BEAST OF ENGLAND FREEDOM
  12. 12. Chants <ul><li>The changing from “Beasts of England” to “Comrade Napoleon” signifies the changing from the policy, Animalism, to a Dictatorship. “Beasts of England” is a song of the rebellion and the good times of Animal Farm, which developed from Old Major’s dream. “Comrade Napoleon” symbolizes the change to a dictatorship and the alterations that were made to the commandments. Napoleon changed all of the commandments to rules that benefited himself not the other animals. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>The commandments were used for a different purpose in the beginning compared to the end. In the beginning of the novel, the commandments were written in order to structure their new freedom that the animals had achieved. Although, in the end of the story the wind had taken a different course. All of the pigs had taken away the animals Utopia and returned it to its original dictatorship like it was before, under the humans. </li></ul>C O M M A N D M E N T S
  14. 14. Old Major’s Skull <ul><li>Old Major’s skull was paraded around during the ceremonies. His skull reminded the animals of their reasons for rebelling. These would include the human’s harsh treatment and the great world they could establish by themselves. Even many years after the rebellion, the animals still looked at Old Major’s skull as a symbol of freedom, unity, and equality. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Gun <ul><li>The gun is shot off in respect to those who had been brave and fought for the cause and well being of each other. The gun is used as a symbol of importance. The days it is shot change throughout the story because Squealer’s propaganda works well enough to change the society’s views. </li></ul>BANG!
  16. 16. Molly’s Ribbons <ul><li>Molly did not want to have to do the work required of her, but would rather be pampered by the humans as she was before. Molly showed her dependence on others by not wanting to be free. The ribbons symbolize the humans, and how Molly needed them to live in her idea of a happy life. When Molly was told to dispose of the ribbons and not place so much value on them, it showed how the animals were getting rid of the human race in their new society. This was not what Molly had in mind when she ran away to the humans. </li></ul>
