Essay Prompt: At the start of George Orwell’s dystopia novel, Animal Farm, the animals set out to establish a perfect community, a “society of animals set free from hunger and the whip, all equal, each working according to his capacity, the strong protecting the weak.” However, by the end of the novel, we see that a very different society is actually formed. A cruel dictatorship rules: no animal can speak his mind; all animals work in hunger, pain, and gross inequality. In a brief two-page essay, prove that Orwell’s novel is dystopian fable or allegory which demonstrates the problems of animalism or a similar social/economic system.
