    Propaganda In Animal Farm

    • 1574 Words
    • 7 Pages

    “Animal Farm” is a “razor-edged fairy tale” (from the blurb) written by George Orwell. This book has a lot more themes than you probably think. It is about a farm taken over by unfairly treated animals and also informs you about the Russian Revolution by replacing the people involved with the animals on the farm. The author does a great job of hiding the real message from the story. I believe what Orwell wanted us to never forget is that history repeats itself explained by the four concepts of propaganda, tyranny, betrayal, and hope. In the book, the pigs and the other higher ranked animals use a lot of propaganda techniques to convince the lower ranked animals into thinking their way. For example, Old Major used slogans to make the other animals think that he was always right. A famous slogan from the book is in the beginning; “All men are enemies. All animals are comrades.”(Orwell 10) Even if you didn’t understand the meaning to these words, you would still agree to them because of the first part saying that men are the real enemies. By making this a catchy phrase, the animals start say them without thinking too much about it. Another example is the song, “Beasts of England”. This caused a similar reaction to the slogan. “Almost before Major had reached the end, they had begun singing it for themselves. Even the stupidest of them had already picked up the tune and a few of the words.” (Orwell 13) The animals aren’t thinking much; they are all caught by the catchiness…
