History. A boring old thing, as some of you might say. But have you ever wondered how much it has affected each and every one of us nowadays? Good morning teacher and my fellow classmates. Today I’m going to have a presentation based on the book Animal Farm, written by George Orwell. It is a satire as well as a fiction.
This book is basically about a revolution that take place in the Manor Farm, where the animals can no longer tolerate the human owner, Mr. jones, who didn’t provide enough food for the animals, leaving them starving but forcing them to work very hard at the same time, and rise up under the commands of mainly the 3 pigs, Snowball, Napoleon and Squealer. The idea of starting a revolution was originally put forward by Old Major, which was a well-respected old boar in the farm. He then died 3 days later before the revolution started. He also announced the 7 commandments of animalism along with the phrase “four legs good, two legs bad” that time and had all animals sang the song “Beats of England” to represent their hope and freedom.
At first, under the leadership of Snowball, the farm was a success. The animals had more than enough to eat. The pigs learnt how to write so they changed the farm’s name from Manor Farm to Animal Farm and had the 7 commandments written on a barn wall for all animals to see. They had “Sunday Meetings” regularly to openly discuss about all sorts of things and to sing “Beats of England” to remind the animals that the revolution wasn’t easy and that they are finally free, having their own rights now. Snoaball even lead the farm to fight Mr. Jones and his friends who came back with guns trying to reclaim his farm but failed at last during the Battle of Cowshed by studying the book of Julius Caesar's campaigns. Despite of all the glories they had brought upon the farm, we can see the 7 commandments were started to be broken by the pigs one by one throughout the whole story....
