George Orwell's Animal Farm

153 Words1 Page
The beginning and ending of the novel Animal Farm by George Orwell greatly reflects one another. In chapter one, Old Major shares a dream he has and gives a speech about rebelling against humans. He clearly tells the animals to "remember also that in fighting against Man, we must not come to resemble him. Even when you have conquered him, do not adopt his vices" (4). In chapter ten, after the rebellion, Napoleon and the other pigs begin to walk and wear clothes as if are humans. The inital motivation of the rebellion is to make the lives of the animals better. However, enjoying the power as much as their human predecessors, Napoleon and the pigs become just as corrupt; therefore, the other animals cannot tell the difference pigs and humans.
