It's weird, when they read the rules, they're different: now commandment #6 says, “No animal shall kill any other animal...WITHOUT A CAUSE.”

Napoleon gets a new name, and is now formally referred to as "Our Leader, Comrade Napoleon." (He is becoming a dictator). He also gets his own holiday honoring his birthday, which is greatly celebrated with gunshots. (He is basically like an animal Hitler. So amazing at first, and everybody loves him, but then you get to see his plan and what is underneath.)

There are some rumors stating that Pilkington Farm treats their animals poorly and is planning an attack on Animal Farm and that Snowball has been hiding there the entire time. Napoleon tells everyone the rumors have been greatly exaggerated and

Nearly all the animals are wounded (including Napoleon). The pigs celebrate their "victory" by dressing up in clothes (commandment #3) and drinking alcohol (commandment #5) inside the farmhouse (commandment #4).

There wasn't any victory, even though they won. Every animal was either dead or wounded, and the windmill was destroyed. 2 days were given to celebrations of “victory” and funerals.

The battle becomes known as “The Battle of the Windmill.”

Squealer calls the animals together to tell them the terrible news that Napoleon is sick and dying. There were rumors started that Snowball had expertly put poison into his food, or his sickness might have just been from them drinking alcohol, which was not allowed in the first place. But it was now made a rule that any animal who drinks alcohol will be punished by death.

One night, there was a loud bang. The animals rushed out to see what had happened. There was a broken latter and a lantern hanging there. The next day Muriel is reading the commandments and notices that #5 has been changed to, “No animal shall drink alcohol...TO

    All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others”. Besides the two wars the animals endured the rising action in this novel is when Boxer, the loyal horse whose motto was “I will work harder,” overworked himself into an accident and Napoleon says he is sending him to the best hospital, but really sells boxer to a horse slaughter company; it showed the extent of selfishness Napoleon reached. The climax, however, was the very end when all the animals saw the pigs walking on two legs and having a meeting with the humans, noticing that they could not tell the pigs and humans apart. The falling action was the reader’s realization that the conclusion is the animals on the farm years later are under the same type of leadership they were under when the novel started and that their resolution (the rebellion) solved nothing. George Orwell wrote Animal Farm with a political purpose and a fairy tale touch to it.…

    If any animal double crossed Napoleon, the animals would be dead. What makes this situation worse, Napoleon is starting to kill his own kind and not protecting them as he said he would. This also shows that animals are acting as humans because they hide themselves to look for safety which any human would do. To keep the animals terrified, Napoleon put in their mind about Jones coming back. When Squealer reminded the animals about the Sunday morning debates he told them, “One false step” was going to result to, “Jones [coming] back” so then the debates must, “Stop” (Chapter 5).…

    Snowball for example, was Napoleons biggest rival, and so therefore expelling him from the farm would then rid Napoleon’s main contender for power, and he would also gain Snowball’s followers. “Nine enormous dogs…dashed straight for Snowball…he was seen no more” After Snowball is exiled; Napoleon takes over the farm and becomes a tyrannical leader, turning animal farm into a totalitarianism society.

    When Squealer was trying to convince the farm that Snowball had been a traitor all along, Boxer was recalling the actual events at first. Then, Squealer became more persuasive and forceful with his words, and Boxer finally concurred that “if Comrade Napoleon says it, it must be right”(82, 7). He doesn’t question any further after then. He certainly has complete faith in the pigs, that he is at fault, and they have no hidden intention. Afterwords, a slaughter of many animals occurred because they and others believed that they had conspired with the “evil” Snowball.…

    At the beginning of the revolution, the animals agreed on setting the retirement age for a horse at twelve. However, Napoleon broke this promise when he organized a man to take away Boxer from Animal Farm to a glue factory because Boxer lost his strength. Some of the animals on the farm are doubting Napoleon for sending Boxer to his death, but Squealer lies and delivers a clever excuse to them. “Some of the animals had noticed that the van which took Boxer away was marked ‘Horse Slaughterer,’ and had actually jumped to the conclusion that Boxer was being sent to the knackers. It was almost unbelievable, said Squealer, that any animal could be so stupid.…

    Jones, the farm owner. If the boar had not spoken about his dream and beliefs, he would most likely not have inspired the animals to unite and revolt sooner in the first place. Despite dying shortly after giving his speech to the animals, he was the match that started the spark; Old Major managed to arouse the animals to carry out the revolution. He gave the animals a “completely new outlook on life”, particularly the devious pigs, Napoleon and Snowball, who both felt that it was their job to prepare for the rebellion to take place (Orwell 35). Unfortunately, the pigs end up becoming tyrants and run a totalitarian system, leaving the rest of the animals doing the heavy labor and performing executions without any justice.…
