Unit Test, Part 2: Animal Farm
Answer each question, using complete sentences.
In Chapter 1, Old Major says, “Man is the only real enemy we have. Remove Man from the scene, and the root cause of hunger and overwork is abolished for ever.” Is that true? What does the novel reveal about “real enemies”?
Answer: This is not true because yes the man is an enemy but it isn't they aren't the only thing that is an enemy to them. The animals themselves are actually an enemy to themselves because of what they do the story. For example, Napoleon is trying to run for leader of the animals but he doesn't even care about the animals, he couldn't care less about the animals. He also tries to scare the animals so that he can get more power. You also have Mollie who is very selfish and vain.
What were some of the revisions to the Seven Commandments and how do they reflect the evolution of Animal Farm? Why are the changes important? Identify at least two changes.
Answer: Some of the revisions to the Seven Commandments were that Napoleon and Squealer secretly painted over the Seven Commandments, they changed it from “No animal shall sleep in a bed” to No animal shall sleep in a bed with sheets. Another one would be that they changed “No animal shall drink alcohol” to “No animal shall drink alcohol to excess.” This reflects the evolution of the Animal Farm in how that they originally couldn't sleep in a bed but know that they changed, they can sleep in a bed but just without sheets. Another one would be that it originally said that they can't drink any alcohol but then they changed it to that they can't drink alcohol to excess, so this means that they can drink alcohol but not to excess. These changes are important because having them writing over it changes that they can sleep in a bed but just without any sheets. Another would be that they can drink alcohol but not to excess....
