Questions:
1. Describe Caddie Woodlawn’s ? What kind of person was she? Give examples from the story that illustrate her personality?

Caddie was as wild a little tomboy as ever ran the woods of Western Wisconsin [Page1], very brave when she visit Indian John to warn them about the white man plan to attack his people [page 131-143] and very much the motherly instinct when she feels the pain of the Hankson children when their mother leaves them to go back to her people. She takes the silver dollar she gets from her Uncle Edmond’s silver dollar instead of spending it on herself. She spends it on the three boy’s pg 155-164 When the boy’s mother leaves them to go back her people, Caddie was sad to see this happen. She took the silver dollar spent it on the boys. She treated the boys as if they were her children.

2. In Chapter one , the Author writes that Caddie was the despair of her mother and of her elder sister Clara.” What does this mean? What is the reason for this? What were the roles of men, women, boys, and girls in early American society? How were children raised? How are the expectations of men, women, boys, and girls the same or different today?

Caddie wished that she could wear boys clothing pg 5
Caddie Mom thinks she is a tomboy pg 5
Caddie’s mom wanted her to be more lady like. Pg 14-16

The roles of the women were to take care of the household, by making quilts, making jam and cooking and to be prim and proper. The role of them men, were to hunt, make money and take care of the family. Pg 251 Caddie learns to be a housewife

Today women have the same options as men and even with the right to vote with the passage of the 19th Amendment which gave the Women the right to vote.

3. Why did the Woodlawn family move from Boston to Wisconsin? What hardships did they and other pioneers face on their westward migration? Describe frontier life. How does the family adapt to life on the prairie? Compare it to the life they left behind?

Mr. Woodlawn was entirely happy on the outskirts of civilization. Here he could breathe freely as he had ever done in the narrow streets of Boston pg 20.[a life of comfort] He fully understands how his father felt about being a Lord. Especially; when, he describes the Peacocks. Pg 89.---Many times; many times. There was a great stone house with towers and turrets and a moat with swans and there were peacocks on the lawn.

The life on the Frontier was harsh. Also the white man had such a miss trust in the Native Americans. Hoofs in the night when Melvin Kent pg 115 when he started a rumor from the tavern that the Native Americans are going to attack.


4. Compare Caddie and Cousin Annabelle. In what ways are they the same? How are they different? What life lessons do the girls learn from each other?

No they are not Caddie was raised to be strong and it’s clearly stated that she is Wild

The Circuit Rider Chapter 2
Pg 15 [Mrs. Woodlawn= “Yes. Mr. Tanner, it is my fault that Caddie is running wild instead of making samplers and dipping candles. I will tell you why.”

Notes: pg 15 Caddie’s father had to say. She loved to hear him say it in his deep, quiet voice. He would be telling how frail she and little Mary had been when they came to Wisconsin from Boston, and how, after little Mary had died, he had begged his wife to let him try an experiment with Caddie.

He said to Harriet he had said I want you to let Caddie Run wild with boys. Don’t keep her in the house learning to be a lady. I would rather see her learn to plow than male samplers, if she can get her healthy by doing so. I believe it is worth trying. Bring the others girls up as you like, but let me have Caddie.

Anna Belle Gray was raised proper debutant [Chapter 20] Snooty [Dear Me !] Said Cousin Anna Belle, “Are these children all yours Aunty Harriet!”?

There are only seven said Mother and everyone is precious pg 225
and she refers Caddy as Tom boy and the Indians as savages pg 227


5. What is the relationship between the white settlers and the Native Americans on the frontier? How do the two groups interact with each other? What stereotypes and prejudices exist? How are friendships and alliances formed? Support your answers with examples from the text?

Chapter 10 Hoofs A rumor was started in A bar by Melvin Kent Pg. 115 who was drinking that the Natives were going to attack; There was a divide and racial tension’s and the town all came to John Woodlawn for protection. However, he didn’t believe it.

A Bad rumor could have caused terrible devastation that is why Caddie took it upon herself to see Indian John to tell him what a town drunk was starting in Chapter 12 Ambassador to the Enemy

Caddie some white men are coming to kill you. Pg 134

John Takes Caddie Home and he confronts the people in peace and that there was no war planned.

6. Describe the frontier school system. When do the Woodlawn children go to school? In what ways is their school different from your school? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the frontier school?

Chapter Six School Room battle—The school was scheduled around farming season. These autumn days were busy ones indoors as well as out. School would soon be starting for the winters. Pg 59

7. How would life be different for the Woodlawn family if they had decided to move to England? List the pros and cons of making the move. Why did the family ultimately decide to stay in the U.S.? What would you have done if you were presented with a similar situation?

They would not have the same freedoms and they would have to give up being American Citizens.

Chapter 22 A Letter with a Foreign Stamp Pg 255 American Citizenship and all my American connections and return to England to live.

I would never give up being American.

8. In the book’s final chapter Caddie remarks upon the changes of the past year. How far I’ve come! She says. “I’m the same girl and yet not the same.” Explain what Caddie means. What experiences have contributed to her self development?

Chapter 24 Travelers Return Pg 275 What a lot has happened since last year when I dropped the nuts the entire dining-room floor. How far I’ve come! I’m the same girl and yet not the same. I wonder if it’s always like that? Folks keep growing from one person into another all their lives, and life is just a lot of everyday adventures. Well whatever life is, I like.”

It was always to be turned westward now, for Caddie Woodlawn was a pioneer and American.

Caddie’s has matured as a young woman. Much stronger Her Character is much like the biblical character Esther when Chapter 7 Esther petition’s the King to save her people from Haman 7:1-10

9. Caddie Woodlawn is a work of historical and fiction. What does this mean? How is the genre the same as different from other fiction? How does it compare to nonfiction? In her author’s note, Carol Ryrie Brink writes that Caddie Woodlawn is based on real events, but that she has added to it “a few imaginary incidences.” Select an incident that you believe to be imaginary and explain how it enhances the plot.

This book is based on truth and it’s 95% true. Rose Kirkwood who is a descent of Baby Joe and the genealogy work I have done on the real Caddie Woodlawn who is aka Caddie Woodhouse.

10. Carol Ryrie’s Brink was awarded the 1936 Newberry Medal for Caddie Woodlawn. Since 1922, the New Berry Medal has been presented to the Author of the year’s outstanding achievement in children’s literature. What do you think makes the book a winner? Why do you think the book remains popular today?

She is what is called a person who was a historian by taking notes of her Grandmother Caddie Woodhouse. She took her grandmother experience and she wrote stories base on what her grandmother told her.

Questions
1. Why is Caddie allowed to grow up "tomboy-ish"? Do think this was the right philosophy for her
father to take? Why or why not?

Chapter Two Circuit Rider
The way Caddie was raised was experiment of her father Pg 15 Father had to say. She loved to hear him say it in his deep quiet voice. He would be telling how frail she and little Mary had been when they came to Wisconsin from Boston, and how, after little Mary had died, he had begged his wife to let him try experiment with Caddie “Harriet,” he had said, “I want you to let Caddie run wild with the boys. Don’t keep her in the house learning to be a lady. I would rather see her learn to plow than make samplers.

Her father did what he had to do to keep from losing another daughter. Losing Mary was painful. To Loose Caddie he was not going let it happen.

2. Why do you think Mrs. Woodlawn said "You'll be the death of me if not yourself!" to Caddie? What
you think she meant?

Chapter Seven Attic Magic

Pg 74 Caddie why can’t you behave like a young lady? She sighed: “You’ll be the death of me if not
of Your self!”

Mrs. Woodlawn was telling her daughter she is to wild and the skating accident could have caused
her death.
3. What did Caddie do to save Indian John and his people? Would you have done the same thing or
Some thing different? Chapter 12 Ambassador to the Enemy.

Caddie takes a risk and she goes to the Tribe of Indian John to warn them without her parent’s knowledge. Pg 132-133 She takes Betsy to the clearing were Indian John lives to warn him and the tribe that white man is about to attack.

Pg 134; Some white men are coming to kill you. You and your people must go away.



4. What did you think about the Woodlawn family's decision about going to England? Would you have done the same or something different? Give specific reasons why or why not.

I would have to done the same; not all countries have the same freedoms as Americans do. We have what is called the Bill of Rights which guarantee’s to the American citizen among regular people without government interference. 5. At the end of the story, Caddie says that she is "the same girl and yet not the same." What do you think she meant by this? How had she changed? How had she stayed the same?

She has grown up and matured. I have to say when she became the ambassador to the Native people and to warn then of in depending danger that both sides would have lost between the white men and the Native Americans

The ROSA PARKS OF IRANIAN WOMAN

Neda Agha-Soltan, 26
She was not activist, she was just an ordinary citizen that asked what happen to my vote.
My Hero of Iran Neda Agha-Soltan
I didn't know her and yet her face will be in my mind.
Hero to All Women
This is what she got for asking were her vote was!
Pray for her and do not forget her.

Neda Agha-Soltan, 26



The Voice the Symbol for Iranian Woman. God Rest her soul. Neda was a brave woman. If her family sees this my heart goes out to your family. I hope your government falls on its face. There is no place for evil empire.
Too many American's especially women in this County take for grant and the luxury of freedom we have. This was a tragedey.

Family, friends mourn 'Neda,' Iranian woman who died on video
Neda Agha-Soltan, 26, 'was a beam of light' and not an activist, friends say. The video footage of her bleeding on the street has turned her into an international symbol of the protest movement.

I praise Neda in my blog her face is a reminder what this country should not take for granted. We are free. This woman died in protest and unselfish for freedom in her country.

Sincerely

Jeannette

My Heart and belief in God goes out too the Soltan Family.

JAMES W. BARNHILL was born in Oldham County, January 23, 1847, and is a son of Hiram and Margaret (Boyd) Barnhill, the latter a native of Shelby County, Ky. Hiram Barnhill was born in North Carolina in 1818, and came to Kentucky with his father, William, who settled in the southern part of Oldham County, participated in the battle of New Orleans, from which field he walked home. The wife of William Barnhill, and grandmother of James W. Barnhill, was a Miss Ruth Boone, who was a native of North Carolina and a cousin of Daniel Boone. James W. Barnhill was reared on the home farm, and was educated at LaGrange. In 1885 he entered into partnership with George V. Barnhill, and established the LaGrange Woolen-mills. George V. died August 28, 1886, and in March, 1887, Col. Charles C. Haelfling and Newton W. Ladd took his half interest. These mills have a working capacity of 115 pounds of wool a day, and employ eleven hands, the capital stock being about $4,500. In May, 1876, Mr. Barnhill married Miss Julia McWilliams, of Shelby County, daughter of Samuel and Martha A. McWilliams, and of the children born to this union five are living: Paul, Estelle, Katie, John D. and William Roy. Mr. Barnhill is still engaged in agricultural pursuits, and owns a farm of 110 acres between LaGrange and Ballardsville.

Lima Dailey News August 24, 1918 Enrico Caruso and Dorothy Park Benjamin


Enrico Caruso led a life that is worth reading about. Even though Dorothy Park Benjamin Write her biography it doesn't tell the whole story.
The Movie the Great Caruso only tells about her meeting and her marriage to Caruso. It doesn't really tell of his family life. And his affair with the Giachetti Sistters.
Especially Ada Giachetti who bore two son's to Caruso Rodolfo and Enrico Caruso Jr.

The Best Book and Recomment is the My Father and My Family by Enrico Caruso Jr. Its worth the money. and the book was so good. I wish Hollywood take another look and re make with Enrico Jr's book it makes for great reading.
I recommend the book. Let me tell you it would put all the Romance people Like Danielle Steel out of Business.

About The Play Company
The Play Company is dedicated to advancing an international view of contemporary playwriting. The company was formed to address our community’s lack of access to plays from other parts of the world, and to promote theatre as a means to engage with the ideas, issues and artists that shape our time. We include the U.S. in our "international view", producing American plays within this global context to emphasize cultural dialogue and the open exchange of ideas. We make our work affordable and accessible through modest ticket prices and grassroots outreach to the city's many cultural communities. The Play Company’s work expands the spectrum of theatre produced in our city, diversifies the repertoire in NYC and beyond, deepens our community’s understanding of contemporary playwriting by introducing foreign texts, and encourages artists and audiences to view American writing within a broader international context. In 2007, these achievements were cited when Play Co. received an OBIE Theatre Grant Award for its contribution to the Off-Broadway theatre community.Play Co.'s artistic programs include: -mainstage production of new plays-the Universal Voices Translation Program to commission and develop new American translations of foreign-language plays.-the New Work/New World Series, a developmental laboratory and public platform for readings, audience dialogues and panel discussions

My Babies Sanchez Melvina and Garfield ADOPT

Go to your local shelter and adopt Cat or Dog. As a person can see I adopted three baby kitten's and I love them Garfield is the orange kitten, the middle kitten is Melvina and the last one is Sanchez.

These babies are a blessing and they are such a pleasure to have. There more lovable animals out there that did not asked to be born. However, they need good homes. I opened my heart up and I took home three of them.

They give so much love and I love them. I cannot imagine my life without them. So go to your local shelter and take a baby home or if a person prefers they have older cats that need homes as well.

Shelters accept donations. However, the best thing a person can do is take one home and give it love. Also shelters help with the cost of Spaying and nuetering. So open your hearts up and please take a baby home and give it love.

As you can see I took three of them and I love them. I say it again open your hearts up and adopted a baby dog or cat.

As you can see I chose three little kittens.

Christian County Animal Shelter 2935 Russellville Road Hopkinsville, Kentucky 42240 Phone 270 887 4175 SANCHEZ






















A Kitten named Sanchez
Email
ccas@hoptown.net
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Where does the last name sanchez come from?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Today [June 3, 2009] My sons and I went to the animal shelter in Christian County Kentucky. Our purpose was to get three baby kittens. We did get three of them. It was so hard to chose from. Because they had too many. They truly need good homes.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well there was one, who caught our attention, as soon as we walked in this little male tabby tap us and he looked at us. As we moved around looking at the babies, he moved all around his cage, he was really hamming it up. He meowed and in his language he said to us you are not going leave me here. I am going home with all of you today. He chose us, and he demanded we take him. This little guy got his way.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
They Shelter had given him his name and we kept it. The name fits him. He is so truly lovable and he is such a little GOD Send. As you can see the kitten we received from the shelter is in excellent health. He is tamed and he is beautiful. The cost was minimal and also I received for each of the kittens a valuable coupon toward medical care. Each is worth $59 towards spay and neutering. I paid $46 for each of the three I received.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My experience with the shelter was warm and they were really helpful. They were extremely happy that we wanted them. They also have dogs.

I know times are tough, however, these little creatures can provide warmth and love. So open your hearts up and make a home for one of them. Sanchez was truly a gift from God.

"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."~Matthew 6:21 & Luke 12:34~Just think of your local animal shelter is just think of Gods gifts.

As you can see in the photo's Sanchez is happy and he got what he wanted a wonderful home and we got what we wanted. A beautiful happy kitten SANCHEZ.

The Manor Farm pg 1: He was rebelled against by the animals on pg 15. The Rebellion had been successfully carried through: Jones had been expelled, and the Manor Farm was theirs.

Mr. Jones -
The often drunk farmer who runs the Manor Farm before the animals stage their Rebellion and establish Animal Farm. Mr. Jones is an unkind master who indulges himself while his animals lack food; he thus represents Tsar Nicholas II, whom the Russian Revolution ousted.
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/characters.html

Mr. Jones
The former owner of the farm, who represents Nicholas II of Russia, the deposed Czar, who had been facing severe financial difficulties in the days leading up to the 1917 Revolution. The character is also a nod towards Louis XVI. There are several implications that he represents an autocratic but ineffective capitalist, incapable of running the farm and looking after the animals properly. Jones is a very heavy drinker and the animals revolt against him after he drinks so much that he does not feed or take care of them. The attempt by Jones and his farmhands to recapture the farm is foiled in the Battle of the Cowshed (the Russian Civil War).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm

Jones
The owner of Manor Farm and a drunkard. His animals overthrow him in the Rebellion. When he tries to recapture his property, they defeat him, steal his gun, and drive him off again. Mr. Jones dies in a home for alcoholics in another part of the country. He represents the kind of corrupt and fatally flawed government that results in discontent and revolution among the populace. More specifically, Jones represents the latter days of imperial Russia and its last leader, the wealthy but ineffective Czar Nicholas II.

Genesis 3:24
So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubim’s and a flaming sword which turned every way to keep the way of the tree of life.

Mr. Pilkington Pg 29. Was easy going gentleman farmer who spent most of his time in fishing or hunting according to season. Owner of the Run down Foxwood Farm Pg 28

Mr. Pilkington - The easygoing gentleman farmer who runs Foxwood, a neighboring farm. Mr. Frederick's bitter enemy, Mr. Pilkington represents the capitalist governments of England and the United States.
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/characters.html

Mr. Pilkington
The easy-going but crafty owner of Foxwood, a neighbouring farm overgrown with weeds, as described in the book. He represents the Anglosphere, the British Empire and the United States. The card game at the very end of the novel is a metaphor for the Tehran Conference, where the parties flatter each other, all the while cheating at the game. This last scene is ironic because all the Pigs are civil and kind to the humans, defying all for which they had fought. This happened at the Tehran Conference: the Soviet Union formed an alliance with the United States and the United Kingdom, capitalist countries that the Soviet Union had fought in the early years of the revolution.[8] At the end of the game, both Napoleon and Pilkington draw the Ace of Spades and then begin fighting loudly, symbolising the beginning of tension between east and west.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm


Pilkington
The owner of Foxwood, the large, unkempt farm adjacent to Manor Farm. He is an easy-going man who prefers pursuing his hobbies to maintaining his land. At the book’s end, Mr. Pilkington offers a toast to the future cooperation between human farms and Animal Farm. He also says he plans to emulate Animal Farm’s low rations and long work hours. Pilkington can be seen to represent the Allies. Allied countries explored the possibility of trade with the Soviet Union in the years leading up to World War II but kept a watchful distance. Ominously, as Friedrich Hayek points out in The Road to Serfdom (1944), communist principles had strong proponents among many Allied nations as well. Pilkington’s unwillingness to save Animal Farm from Frederick and his men parodies the Allies’ initial hesitance to enter the War. Napoleon’s and Pilkington’s poker game at the end of the book suggests the beginnings of a power struggle that would later become the Cold War.

Mr. Federick
a tough shrewd man perpetually involved in lawsuits and with a name for driving hard bargains. Pg 28 & 29

Mr. Frederick - The tough, shrewd operator of Pinchfield, a neighboring farm. Based on Adolf Hitler, the ruler of Nazi Germany in the 1930s and 1940s, Mr. Frederick proves an untrustworthy neighbor.
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/characters.html

[Especially when Frederick Defrauds and fools Napoleon with forgery in currency. Pg 75
Napoleon Also refused 1st a check from Frederick because he might get a fake with insufficient funds]

Mr. Frederick
The tough owner of Pinchfield, a well-kept neighbouring farm. He represents Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party in general.[8] He buys wood from the animals for forged money and later attacks them, destroying the windmill but being finally beaten in the resulting Battle of the Windmill, which could be interpreted as either the Battle of Moscow or the Battle of Stalingrad. There are also stories of him mistreating his own animals, such as throwing dogs into a furnace, which may also represent the Nazi Party's treatment of political dissidents.[citation needed]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm

Frederick
The owner of Pinchfield, the small farm adjacent to Manor Farm. He is a hard-nosed individual who is known for his frequent legal troubles and demanding business style. He cheats the animals out of their timber by paying for it with fake banknotes. Frederick represents Adolf Hitler. Rumors of the exotic and cruel animal tortures Frederick enacts on his farm are meant to echo the horror stories emerging from Nazi Germany. Frederick’s agreement to buy the timber represents the Nazi-Soviet non-aggression treaty, and his subsequent betrayal of the pact and invasion of Animal Farm represents the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union.
http://www.gradesaver.com/animal-farm/study-guide/character-list/

These two man disliked each other so much that it was difficult for them to come to any agreement, even in defence of their own interests. However, they were both afraid of the Animal Rebellion Pg 29. [Mr. Frederick and Pilkington]
Owner of the Pinchfield farm PG 29

Mr. Whymper Pg 50.
A Solicitor living in Willingdon had agreed to act as intermediary between Animal Farm and the outside world and would visit the farm every Monday morning to receive instructions.

Napoleon enters into Contracts with the outside world through Mr. Whymper pg 51

Mr. Whymper
A man hired by Napoleon for the public relations of Animal Farm to human society. He is loosely based on Western intellectuals such as George Bernard Shaw and, especially, Lincoln Steffens, who visited the USSR in 1919.

Mr. Whymper -

The Pigs

Major [Pig] PG 1. He talks about man in a negative way. He tells this [at the age 12 he was still a Majestic Pig]

Old Major - The prize-winning boar whose vision of a socialist utopia serves as the inspiration for the Rebellion. Three days after describing the vision and teaching the animals the song “Beasts of England,” Major dies, leaving Snowball and Napoleon to struggle for control of his legacy. Orwell based Major on both the German political economist Karl Marx and the Russian revolutionary leader Vladimir Ilych Lenin
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/characters.html

Old Major
A prize Middle White boar, the inspiration that fuels the Rebellion in the book. According to one interpretation, he could be based upon both Karl Marx (in that he describes the ideal society the animals could create if the humans are overthrown) and Vladimir Lenin (in that his skull is put on revered public display, as was Lenin's embalmed corpse). However, according to Christopher Hitchens: "the persons of Lenin and Trotsky are combined into one [i.e., Snowball], or, it might even be [...] to say, there is no Lenin at all."[5]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm

Old Major
A prize Middle White boar that the Joneses exhibited under the name “Willingdon Beauty.” He is, “stout … But still a majestic-looking pig, with a wise and benevolent appearance” (26). In addition to his laurels in the exhibition world, Major is highly respected among his fellow farm animals. His age is twelve years, which makes him a senior among them, and he also claims to have had over four hundred children. He is the one who calls the meeting in the first chapter to discuss his strange dream. Major claims to “understand the nature of life on this earth as well as any animal now living” (28). Months after his death, the pigs disinter his skull and place it at the base of the flagpole beside the gun. Major symbolizes two historical figures. First, he represents Karl Marx, the father of Marxism. Marx’s political hypotheses about working-class consciousness and division of labor worked infinitely better in theory than in practice, especially when corrupt leaders twisted them for their personal gain. Second, Major represents Vladimir Lenin, the foremost of the three authors of the Russian Revolution and the formation of the Soviet Union. Lenin died during the Soviet Union’s early years, leaving Trotsky (Snowball) and Stalin (Napoleon) to vie for his leadership position.

The Pigs of the Farm----------Superior Breed over other animals the Educated Elite
Two Young Boars descendents of Major Page 11

Children of Major

Pre-eminent among the pigs were two young boars named snowball and Napoleon, whom Mr. Jones was breeding up for Sale.

Snowball—was more vivacious pig than Napoleon, quicker in speech and more inventive, but was not considered to have the same depth of character Pg 11.

Snowball - The pig who challenges Napoleon for control of Animal Farm after the Rebellion. Based on Leon Trotsky, Snowball is intelligent, passionate, eloquent, and less subtle and devious than his counterpart, Napoleon. Snowball seems to win the loyalty of the other animals and cement his power.
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/characters.html

Snowball- A "young boar" who, with Napoleon and Squealer, helps to codify Old Major's ideas into the commandments of Animalism. Orwell describes him as "quicker in speech and more inventive" than Napoleon. He is the one who organizes the animals into various committees: "the Egg Production Committee for the hens, the Clean Tails League for the cows, ... the Whiter Wool Movement for the sheep", and various others. He also plans the defense of the farm against the humans which proves useful when Jones and his friends try to retake the farm. Snowball shows his expert use of military strategy during...
http://www.enotes.com/animal/snowball

Snowball
Napoleon's rival. He is probably an allusion to Leon Trotsky. He wins over most animals, but is driven out of the farm by Napoleon. Snowball genuinely works for the good of the farm and devises plans to help the animals achieve their vision of an egalitarian utopia, but Napoleon and his dogs chase him from the farm, and Napoleon spreads rumours to make him seem evil and corrupt and that he had secretly sabotaged the animals' efforts to improve the farm. In his biography of Orwell,[7] Bernard Crick suggests that Snowball was as much inspired by the Workers' Party of Marxist Unification (POUM) leader Andrés Nin as by Trotsky. Nin was a similarly adept orator and also fell victim to the Communist purges of the Left during the Spanish Civil War.[citation needed]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm

Snowball
One of the leaders among the pigs, Snowball is a young pig that is up for sale. He is more intelligent than Napoleon but lacks Napoleon’s depth of character. He is also a brilliant orator. Snowball, who represents Leon Trotsky, is a progressive politician and aims to improve Animal Farm with a windmill and other technological advances, but Napoleon expels him before he can do so. In his absence, Snowball comes to represent an abstract idea of evil. The animals blame misfortunes on him, including the windmill’s destruction, and entertain the idea that he is lurking on one of the neighboring farms, plotting revenge. Napoleon uses the animals’ fear of Snowball to create new propaganda and changes history to make it seem as though Snowball was always a spy and a traitor. Snowball’s name is symbolic in this way. Napoleon encourages the animals’ fear of him to grow or snowball so that it becomes so great it is almost palpable. Snowball’s name may also refer to Trotsky’s call (following Marx) to encourage a revolution outside the Soviet Union that would “snowball” into an international proletariat revolution. Snowball can more generally be said to represent systems of belief outside of communism, which the government demonizes in order to lionize its own system.

Able Genesis 4:2/4:4

Orwell’s model this character after Leon Trotsky[He was part of the Rebellion that over threw the government of the useless Tsar Nicholas II the Monarch of Russia October 1917. he is also the Able: Genesis 4:2 Just like Cain Slaughter Able Genesis 4:8 when Cain Slew his brother.

In 1924 Stalin has Leon Trotsky was oust like Snowball Pg 41[Page 26 Nine Puppies] At this was a terrible baying sound outside, and nine enormous dogs wearing brass-studded collars came bounding into the barn. They dashed straight for Snowball, who only sprang from his place just in time to escape their snapping Jaws.

----After he escapes from the Clutches of the Dogs he was never seen or heard from again. However, every time something goes wrong and Napoleon’s hysteria blames everything on Napoleon and even accuses the animals as spies for Snowball and has them slaughtered for no reason pg 49, 50, 51, 54, 58, 59.

Napoleon-was large rather fierce looking Berkshire boar, the only Berkshire on the farm, not much of a talker, but with a reputation for getting his own way. Pg 11.

Napoleon - The pig who emerges as the leader of Animal Farm after the Rebellion. Based on Joseph Stalin, Napoleon uses military force (his nine loyal attack dogs) to intimidate the other animals and consolidate his power. In his supreme craftiness, Napoleon proves more treacherous than his counterpart, Snowball
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/characters.html

Napoleon-A "large, rather fierce-looking Berkshire boar," Napoleon becomes the leader of the animals after Snowball is chased off the farm. He, Snowball, and Squealer are the ones who organize the thoughts proclaimed by Old Major into the principles of Animalism. Soon after the revolt of the animals, Napoleon takes nine puppies from their mothers to "educate" them. The puppies end up being his personal bodyguards and secret police force. He grows increasingly removed from the other animals, dining alone and being addressed as "our Leader, Comrade Napoleon." Like Joseph Stalin, the Soviet leader...
http://www.enotes.com/animal/napoleon

Napoleon
"A large, rather fierce-looking Berkshire boar, the only Berkshire on the farm, not much of a talker, but with a reputation for getting his own way",[citation needed] Napoleon is the main tyrant and villain of Animal Farm; he is based upon Joseph Stalin. He begins to gradually build up his power, using puppies he took from mother dogs Jessie and Bluebell, which he raises to be vicious dogs as his secret police. After driving Snowball off the farm, Napoleon usurps full power, using false propaganda from Squealer and threats and intimidation from the dogs to keep the other animals in line. Among other things, he gradually changes the Commandments for his benefit. By the end of the book, Napoleon and his fellow pigs have learned to walk upright and started to behave similarly to the humans against whom they originally revolted.
In the first French version of Animal Farm, Napoleon is called César, the French spelling of Caesar,[2] although another translation has him as Napoléon
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm

Napoleon
One of the leaders among the pigs, Napoleon is a “large, rather fierce-looking Berkshire boar” that is up for sale. He is the only Berkshire boar on the farm. He is “not much of a talker” and has “a reputation for getting his own way” (35). Napoleon expels Snowball from the farm and takes over. He modifies his opinions and policies and rewrites history continually to benefit the pigs. Napoleon awards special privileges to the pigs and especially to himself. For example, he dines on Mr. Jones’s fine china, wears Mr. Jones’s dress clothes, and smokes a pipe. As time goes on, Napoleon becomes a figure in the shadows, increasingly secluding himself and making few public appearances. Eventually, Napoleon holds a conciliatory meeting with the neighboring human farmers and effectively takes over Mr. Jones’s position as dictator. Napoleon represents the type of dictator or tyrant who shirks the common good, instead seeking more and more power in order to create his own regime. Orwell reflects Napoleon’s greed for power with a name that invokes Napoleon Bonaparte, the very successful French leader who became “Emperor” and brashly invaded Russia before being defeated by Russia. But Napoleon the pig more directly represents Stalin in his constantly changing policies and actions, his secret activities, his intentional deception and manipulation of the populace, and his use of fear tactics and atrocities.
http://www.gradesaver.com/animal-farm/study-guide/character-list/

Is the main dictator on the animal farm he is the son of Major. However, just like Stalin family didn’t matter to Stalin for example:

Pg 63 Napoleon stood sternly surveying his audience then he uttered a highly-pitched whimper. Immediately the dogs bounded forward, seized four pigs by the ear and dragged them, squealing with pain and terror, to Napoleon’s feet. [Since Napoleon is the only Boar he has no feelings for family just as Joseph Stalin]

Stalin’s wife [Family] She married Joseph Stalin in 1906 and gave him a son, Yakov Dzhugashvili. She died of typhus in 1907. Much of her family (including her sister Mariko and brother Alexander) would later be executed during her husband's Great Terror. Sources: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ekaterina_Svanidze
Including his son Yakov Dzhugashvili.


Yakov and his father Stalin never got along. Allegedly once Stalin referred to Yakov as a "mere cobbler." He ran immediately to his bedroom. It turned out that the girl was Yakov's Jewish fiancée, and when they told Stalin of their engagement he became enraged.

Dzhugashvili served as an artillery officer in the Red Army and was captured in the early stages of the German invasion of USSR at the Battle of Smolensk. The Germans later offered to exchange Yakov for Friedrich Paulus, the German Field Marshal captured by the Soviets after the Battle of Stalingrad, but

Stalin turned the offer down, allegedly saying "I do not change the soldier for the marshal"; others credit him with saying "I have no son," to this offer.
Sources: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yakov_Dzhugashvili

Stalin would later state that other than his mother she may have been the only person he truly loved. At her funeral he told a friend that "with her died any human feeling in him."

Pg 63 & 64 Napoleon unleashed terror among the animals as he takes control of the Animal Farm.
During the late 1930s, Stalin launched the Great Purge (also known as the "Great Terror"), a campaign to purge the Communist Party of people accused of corruption or treachery; he extended it to the military and other sectors of Soviet society. Targets were often executed, imprisoned in Gulag labor camps or exiled. In the years following, millions of ethnic minorities were also deported.[3][4]

Pg 67 Napoleon Paranoid is evident Just like Stalin

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Stalin Since Napoleon is the only Boar on the Farm he is the father of the pigs it so states he sired the pig population on page 86, Napoleon was the only boar on the farm, it was possible to guess at their parentage.

Napoleon is clearly atheist he has no regards for the Lord God. At first after the Rebellion on pg 22 On Sundays there was no work.---Chapter 2

Military bully he was always referred as ‘Our Leader Comrade Napoleon,”—Father of all Animals as Abraham is referred as father of the three religions

He is widely regarded as the patriarch of
1. Christians
2. Jews
3. Islamic-Muslims

Sources: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abraham
Judaism, Christianity and Islam are sometimes referred to as the "Abrahamic religions"

The Beginning of Wiping out traditions by destroying the Freedoms and taking away any traces of religion.

That all changed in Chapter Five
1. Sunday-Morning Meetings would come to an end Pg 42.
2. The animals would still assemble on Sunday Mornings to salute the flag, sing Beast of England, and receive their orders for the week but there would be no more debates Pg 42.

Chapter Six
3. Sundays was now a work day Pg 46. Napoleon said this was voluntary. However, he added the animals who didn’t work would only get have the rations. So he was bullying his constituents [Comrades] into working.

Napoleon is a believer in a one party system—His word was law when he ran Snowball off Pg 42. Napoleon erases any type of republic and democracy through scared tactic’s and Squealer and the nine puppies that were taken from the mothers were brainwashed and trained by Napoleon appeared Pg 44.

Exodus 20:8-10
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work,

Chapter Seven
4. Napoleon abolishes the National Anthem Pg 67. Just Mr. Jones silence them in chapter 1 Pg 9 & 10 When Mr. Jones fires his weapon to silence the animals

Napoleon clearly breaks all Seven of the Commandments
Chapter Two Pg 18

THE SEVEN COMMANDMENTS
1. Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy
Changed pg 101 when the pigs are now walking on their hind legs. Squealer trained the gullibly Sheep from Saying this: Pg 102 Four Legs good, Two Legs Better! Four legs good, two legs better! Ect

When Major clearly stated this pg 7 Whatever goes up TWO LEGS is an ENEMY All habits of men are evil. [Napoleon against his father] proves the words of Major Two Legs is an Enemy.

Exodus 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. [Major declares himself god like]

2. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings is friend
Exodus 20: 16
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Pg 102 Two Legs are better! That Squealer had the sheep proclaim
Pg 64, 66 & 67 When Napoleon paranoid minds gets to him. False confessions are made especially

Pg 64 The four pigs waited trembling with guilt written on every line of their countenances. Napoleon now called upon them to confess their crimes.

Napoleon had the dogs kill them [Which breaks Commandment 6]

3. No Animal Shall Wear Clothes.
Genesis 2:25
25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Pg 15 Snowball—Ribbons he should be considered as clothes, which are the mark of a human being. All animals should no naked.

Genesis 3:7
7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

Pg 103. The pigs violate Commandment #3 Napoleon was seen strolling in the farmhouse garden with a pipe in his mouth—no, not even when the pigs took Mr. Jones clothes out of the wardrobes and put them on.

Chapter 10 Pg 97 Described as a mature bore of twenty-four Stone.

One other thing just as Napoleon blames every failed problem was blamed on Snowball who was clearly out of the picture. Just a Cain lied to God about his brother Genesis 4:5 why am I brother’s Keeper?

4. No animal Shall Sleep in a bed

Muriel
However, she adds to Commandments for example: [only memorization]

Pg 18. 4. No animal shall sleep in a bed. She justifies why the pigs sleep in the bed by stating the Commandment as this;

Pg 52. Muriel She said [gravely] Thesaurus [badly] now read me the Fourth Commandment does it not say something about never sleeping in a bed?

With Some difficulty Muriel spelt out.

‘It says, “No animal shall sleep in a bed with Sheets,” ‘she announced finally!

This moment please Squealer because Muriel placed this matter in its proper perspective right into Napoleon’s hands.

5. No animal Shall drink Alcohol

Pg 83 They thought the fifth Commandment was No Animal shall drink alcohol,’ but there were two words that they had forgotten. Actually the Commandment read: No animal shall drinl alcohol to excess.’

Again with Muriel bad memorization she added the excess She told them they had remembered this one as wrong too.

Squealer Pg 12 He is Napoleon right hand pig. He is shrewd

6. No animal shall kill any other animal
Exodus 20:13
13 Thou shalt not kill.

Since Napoleon is clearly an atheist violates this law with is paranoid of being overthrown by his constituents He starts to execute Pg 64 & 65 The three hens who had been the ring leaders in the attempted rebellion over the eggs now came forward and stated that Snowball had appeared to them in a dream and incited them to disobey Napoleon’s orders. They, too, were slaughtered.

Part of Commandment 2 or has wings, is a friend [Fowl] Slaughtered by Napoleon.

7. All animals are equal

Pg 103. For once Benjamin consented to break his rule, and he read out to her what was written on the wall. There was nothing there now except a single Commandment. It ran:

ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL
BUT SOME ANiMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS

Meaning the Pigs are the Elite.

As Benjamin clearly read the Commandment, and only one appears.

Napoleon clearly to over the Animal Farm. He also didn’t appreciate the title Animal Farm. He reinstated the former name THE MANOR FARM pg 107.

Squealer Pg 12: He could turn black and white. He was sly, shrewd, liar and forceful. He was Napoleon’s spokes pig. [Right] Was a small Fat pig with very round cheeks, with twinkling eyes, nimble movements, and a shrill voice. He was a brilliant talker, and when he was arguing some difficult point he had a way of skipping from side to side and whisking his tail which somehow very persuasive. The others said of Squealer that he could turn black into white. Pg 12

Squealer - The pig who spreads Napoleon's propaganda among the other animals. Squealer justifies the pigs' monopolization of resources and spreads false statistics pointing to the farm's success. Orwell uses Squealer to explore the ways in which those in power often use rhetoric and language to twist the truth and gain and maintain social and political control.
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/characters.html

Squealer
A small fat porker who serves as Napoleon's right hand pig and minister of propaganda. Inspired by Vyacheslav Molotov and the Soviet paper Pravda,[citation needed]. Squealer manipulates the language to excuse, justify, and extol all of Napoleon's actions. He represents all the propaganda Stalin used to justify his own terrible acts. In all of his work, George Orwell made it a point to show how politicians used language to suit their interests. Squealer limits debate by complicating it and he confuses and disorients, making claims that the pigs need the extra luxury they are taking in order to function properly, for example. However, when questions persist, he usually uses the threat of the return of Mr Jones, the former owner of the farm, to justify the pigs' privileges. Squealer uses statistics to convince the animals that life is getting better and better. Most of the animals have only dim memories of life before the revolution; therefore, they are convinced.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm

Squealer-"A small, fat pig" known for being a smooth talker, Squealer reportedly "could turn black into white." He is the propaganda chief for the pigs, the equivalent of the Soviet party newspaper Pravda (which means "Truth" in Russian) in Orwell's allegory. Squealer has an explanation for everything, including why the pigs need to drink the milk the cows produce, why the commandments of Animalism seem different, and why the "ambulance" called to take Boxer to the hospital has a sign for a horse slaughterer on its side. By the story's end, he is so fat that his eyes are mere slits. Always...

Squealer
The best known of the porker pigs, Squealer has “very round cheeks, twinkling eyes, nimble movements, and a shrill voice.” He is also “a brilliant talker” who is talented in the art of argument. The other pigs say Squealer “could turn black into white” (35). Under Napoleon’s rule, Squealer acts as the liaison to the other animals. He lies to them, rewriting history and reading them encouraging, but false, statistics. Squealer is especially good at playing on the animals’ ignorance and gullibility. He represents the propaganda machine of a totalitarian government.
http://www.gradesaver.com/animal-farm/study-guide/character-list/

He emphasized that Pg 43 Bravery is not enough and Loyalty and obedience are more important

These three had elaborated Old Major’s teachings into a complete system of thought, to which they gave the name of Animalism= Communism

Pg 17 The pigs now revealed that during the past three months they had taught themselves to read and write from old spelling book which belong to Mr. Jones Children.

Animalism- animalism - preoccupation with satisfaction of physical drives and appetites
Source: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/animalism

Napoleon is hungry for power pg 45 when Squealer explains his position Squealer, was something called tactics. He repeated a number of times. “Tactic, comrades, tactics! Skippinground and whisking his tail with a merry laugh. The animals were not certain what the word meant, but Squealer spoke so persuasively, and the three dogs whom happened to be with him growled so threateningly, that they accepted his explanation without further question.
Squealer threaten the animals with the use of Force. There was no back talk.

Chapter Ten Pg 97 Squealer was so fat that he could with difficulty see out of his eyes.

Minimus
A poetic pig who writes the second and third national anthems of Animal Farm after the singing of "Beasts of England" is banned. He represents admirers of Stalin both inside and outside the USSR such as Maxim Gorky. As Minimus composed the replacement of "Beasts of England", he may equate to the three main composers of the National Anthem of the Soviet Union which replaced The InternationaleGabriel El-Registan, Alexander Vasilyevich Alexandrov and Sergey Mikhalkov.[citation

A pig with “a remarkable gift for composing songs and poems.” Under Napoleon’s rule, Minimus sits with him and Squealer on the barn platform during meetings. Minimus composes propaganda songs and poems under Napoleon’s rule. Though we never hear Minimus complain about his duties as propaganda writer, he represents the Soviet Union’s artists, who were forced to use their talents to glorify communism rather than express their personal feelings or beliefs.

Pinked Eyed Pg 72 Napoleon’s food taster.

Fresh precautions for Napoleon’s safety were taken. Four dogs guarded his bed at night , one at each corner, and a young Pig named Pink eye was given the task of tasting all his food before he ate it, lest it should be poisoned.

Pinkeye
A minor pig who is mentioned only once; he is the pig that tastes Napoleon's food to make sure it is not poisoned, in response to rumours about an assassination attempt on Napoleon.

Pinkeye
A pig that Napoleon enlists as his taster, lest someone try to poison him.

Minimus Pg 44[Pig] who had a remarkable gift for composing songs and poems, sat on the front of the raised platform, with the nine young dogs forming a semicircle round them, and the other pigs sitting behind.

Minimus - The poet pig who writes verse about Napoleon and pens the banal patriotic song “Animal Farm, Animal Farm” to replace the earlier idealistic hymn “Beasts of England,” which Old Major passes on to the others.
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/characters.html

Minimus
A poetic pig who writes the second and third national anthems of Animal Farm after the singing of "Beasts of England" is banned. He represents admirers of Stalin both inside and outside the USSR such as Maxim Gorky. As Minimus composed the replacement of "Beasts of England", he may equate to the three main composers of the National Anthem of the Soviet Union which replaced The InternationaleGabriel El-Registan, Alexander Vasilyevich Alexandrov and Sergey Mikhalkov.[citation

The Piglets
Hinted to be the children of Napoleon (albeit not truly noted in the novel) and are the first generation of animals actually subjugated to his idea of animal inequality. Is also interpreted as the generation raised in Lenin's cult of personality.


The Rebel Pigs
Four pigs who complain about Napoleon's takeover of the farm but are quickly silenced and later executed. This is based on the Great Purge during Stalin's regime

The HORSES &DONKEY
Equines
There are four main equine (horse and donkey) characters: Clover, Boxer, Benjamin, and Mollie.

Boxer-who was a male PG 2
1. Was enormous beast nearly eighteen hands high, Pg 2
2. Somewhat stupid appearance with a white strip down his nose Pg 2.
3. Not of First rate intelligence—Example Pg 24 could not get beyond the letter D. He would only trace out A. B. C. D. Pg 25. On several Occasions he did learn E. F. G. H and then to discover he forgotten A. B. C. D. Finally he was content with the first four letters.
His failure to read cost him his life and he was trusting of his government Pg 93-95 when he was sent to the Knackery [Butcher to become dog food]
4. He was universally respected for his steadiness of Character and tremendous work.
5. More on Boxer Pg 21 was the admiration of everybody. He had been a hard worker even in Jones’s time, Napoleon leaned hard on him.

Boxer-Character is a reminder of Sampson Judges: 13:24 birth of Sampson [Strength]; when his strength was gone Boxer was put to Death. As Sampson loses his strength he was enslaved and lost his site by the Philistines Judges 16:21

Boxer - The cart-horse whose incredible strength, dedication, and loyalty play a key role in the early prosperity of Animal Farm and the later completion of the windmill. Quick to help but rather slow-witted, Boxer shows much devotion to Animal Farm's ideals but little ability to think about them independently. He naively trusts the pigs to make all his decisions for him. His two mottoes are “I will work harder” and “Napoleon is always right.”
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/characters.html

Boxer
One of the main characters, he is the symbol of the working class, or proletariat: loyal, kind, dedicated, respectful and physically the strongest animal on the farm, but naïve and slow. His ignorance and blind trust towards his leaders leads to his death and their profit. In particular, his heroic physical work represents the Stakhanovite movement. His maxim of "I will work harder" is reminiscent of Jurgis Rudkus from the Upton Sinclair novel The Jungle. His second maxim, "Napoleon is always right" is an example of the propaganda used by Squealer to control the animals. It was not adopted until later in the book. Boxer's work ethic is often praised by the pigs, and he is set as a prime example to the other animals. When Boxer is injured, and can no longer work, Napoleon sends him off to the knacker's yard and deceives the other animals, saying that Boxer died peacefully in the hospital and that the ambulance was an old knacker's van that hadn't been repainted. When the animals cannot work, Napoleon tosses them aside, for they mean nothing to him and Napoleon was not just done with Boxer because he could not work. He was also afraid of Boxer. Boxer had the strength and leadership to overthrow Napoleon. Napoleon saw that Boxer would never do this because he was too loyal.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm


Boxer
The male of the two horses on the farm. He is “an enormous beast, nearly eighteen hands high, and as strong as any two ordinary horses put together. A white stripe down his nose gave him a somewhat stupid appearance, and in fact he was not of first-rate intelligence, but he was universally respected for his steadiness of character and tremendous powers of work” (26). Boxer has a special affinity for Benjamin. With his determination to be a good public servant and his penchant for hard work, Boxer becomes Napoleon’s greatest supporter. He works tirelessly for the cause of Animal Farm, operating under his personal maxims, “I will work harder” and “Napoleon is always right.” The only time Boxer doubts propaganda is when Squealer tries to rewrite the story of Snowball’s valor at the Battle of the Cowshed, a “treachery” for which he is nearly executed. But Boxer recants his doubts when he learns that the altered story of the battle is directly from Napoleon. After Boxer is injured while defending the farm in the Battle of the Windmill, Napoleon sends him to be slaughtered for profit. The pigs use the money from the slaughter to buy themselves a case of whisky. Boxer is not pugnacious despite his name, but he is as strong as his name implies. In this way, Boxer is a painfully ironic character. He is strong enough to kill another animal, even a human, with a single blow from his hoof, and the dogs cannot manage to overpower him in Chapter VII. Still, Boxer lacks the intelligence and the nerve to sense that he is being used. Boxer represents the peasant or working class, a faction of humanity with a great combined strength--enough to overthrow a manipulative government--but which is uneducated enough to take propaganda to heart and believe unconditionally in the government’s cause.
http://www.gradesaver.com/animal-farm/study-guide/character-list/

Chapter Nine Boxer is Slaughter Pg 94 & 95 he was no longer useful to Napoleon, he no longer had the strengthen and he was considered a waste

Chapter Ten Forgotten Pg 97. [Part of the Rebellion] long dead Exodus 1:8 Now there arose up a new King over Egypt which knew not Joseph [The memory of Mr. Jones is long gone]

Clover pg 2 was stout motherly mare approaching middle life, which had never quite got her figure back after her fourth foal. [Mare]

Clover - A good-hearted female cart-horse and Boxer's close friend. Clover often suspects the pigs of violating one or another of the Seven Commandments, but she repeatedly blames herself for misremembering the commandments.
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/characters.html

Clover
Boxer's companion, who is also a draught horse. She helps and cares for Boxer when he splits his hoof. She blames herself for forgetting the original Seven Commandments when Squealer had actually revised them. Clover is compassionate, as is shown when she protects the baby ducklings during Major's speech. She is also upset when animals are executed by the dogs, and is held in great respect by the three younger horses who ultimately replace Boxer. Beyond being the matriarch it is hard to find a political role for her in the novel.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm

Pg 24 Clover learnt the whole Alphabet but could not put words together

Chapter Ten Pg 97 She is old and remembers the rebellion against man; deep in heart she is heartbroken due to Napoleon’s controlling ways.

Just as God I Samuel 15:35: Lord repented that he had made Saul King over Israel. [God was sorry he made Saul King of his people because he turned out evil just as Napoleon did to the animals on the farm]
Benjamin Pg 2 the Donkey was the oldest animal on the farm, and the worst tempered. He seldom talked, and when he did, it was usually to make some cynical remark. [Friends with Boxer Pg 3]
Benjamin - The long-lived donkey who refuses to feel inspired by the Rebellion. Benjamin firmly believes that life will remain unpleasant no matter who is in charge. Of all of the animals on the farm, he alone comprehends the changes that take place, but he seems either unwilling or unable to oppose the pigs.
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/characters.html

BenjaminBenjamin, a donkey, is "the oldest animal on the farm, and the worst tempered." He is a sad cynic who believes that whatever the animals do, conditions on the farm will remain equally as bad. Although he usually refuses to read, he is the one who reads the side of the truck that comes to take Boxer away and realizes it belongs to the horse slaughterer. Benjamin is moved to action, but he is too late to save his friend. Benjamin represents the cynical intellectual who refuses to get involved in politics and so fails to affect meaningful change. His cymcism is much...
http://www.enotes.com/animal/other-characters

Benjamin
A wise old donkey who shows little emotion and is one of the longest-lived animals; he is still alive at the end of the book. The animals often ask him about his lack of expression but he always answers with: 'Donkeys live a long time. None of you have ever seen a dead donkey.' Benjamin can also read as well as any pig, but rarely displays his ability. He is a dedicated friend to Boxer and is very upset when Boxer is taken away. Benjamin has known about the pigs' wrongdoing the entire time, but he says nothing to the other animals. He represents the cynics in society. Another possibility is that Benjamin is an allegory for intellectuals who have the wisdom to stay clear of the purges, but take no action themselves, such as pacifists, whose attitude Orwell firmly disliked. Yet another possibility is that Benjamin is Orwell himself.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm

Benjamin
The donkey. He is the oldest animal on the farm and stereotypically stubborn and crotchety. He is also intelligent, being the only animal (aside from the pigs) that can read fluently. He never laughs, preferring to make cynical comments, especially the cryptic line, “donkeys live a long time.” Despite Benjamin’s unfriendly nature, he has a special affinity for Boxer. The Rebellion does not change Benjamin’s personality, although he eventually helps the animals read the lettering on the side of the van and the maxim that replaces the Seven Commandments. Benjamin represents the human (and also stereotypically Russian) tendency towards apathy; he holds fast to the idea that life is inherently hard and that efforts for change are futile. Benjamin bears a similarity to Orwell himself. Over the course of his career, Orwell became politically pessimistic and predicted the overtake of the West by totalitarian governments.
http://www.gradesaver.com/animal-farm/study-guide/character-list/


Pg 22 [Example of Cynical remark] Donkeys live a long time. None of you has ever seen a dead donkey. And the others had to be content with is cryptic answer.

Pg 24 Benjamin could read as well as any pig, but never exercised his faculty. So far as he knew , he said there was nothing worth reading

Pg 103 For once Benjamin consented to break his rule, and he read out to her what was written on the wall. There was nothing there now except a single Commandment. It ran:

ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL
BUT SOME ANUMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS

Meaning the Pigs are the Elite.

Benjamin becomes alive when he realizes he is losing his friend Boxer the Knackery Pg 92 & Pg 93
When Napoleon send him to his demise.

Chapter Ten Pg 97
Only Benjamin was much the same only a little more, greyer about the muzzle and since Boxer’s death, more morose [Miserable] and taciturn [Distant] than ever.

Mollie white Mare Pg 3. At least moment Mollie the foolish pretty white mare that drew Mr. Jones Trap. However, Mollie leaves in Chapter 5. She returns to man for the kinds that were bestowed to her. She escapes Napoleon’s wickedness. Pg 36.
Mollie - The vain, flighty mare who pulls Mr. Jones's carriage. Mollie craves the attention of human beings and loves being groomed and pampered. She has a difficult time with her new life on Animal Farm, as she misses wearing ribbons in her mane and eating sugar cubes. She represents the petit bourgeoisie that fled from Russia a few years after the Russian Revolution.
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/characters.html

Mollie
A self-centred and vain white mare who likes wearing ribbons in her mane, eating sugar cubes (which represent luxury) and being pampered and groomed by humans. She represents upper-class people, the bourgeoisie and nobility who fled to the West after the Russian Revolution and effectively dominated the Russian diaspora. Accordingly, she quickly leaves for another farm and is only once mentioned again.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm

Mollie-Three days later Mollie disappeared. For some weeks nothing was known of her whereabouts, then the pigeons reported that they had seen her on the other side of the Willingdon. She was between the shafts of a smart dog cart red and black,which standing outside a public house. A fat red faced in check breeches and gaiters, who looked like a publican, was stroking her nose and feeding her sugar. Her coat was newly clipped and she wore a scarlet ribbon round her forelock. She appeared to be enjoying herself, so the pigeons said. NONE of the animals ever mentioned Mollie again Pg 36.

Mollie
The white mare that draws Mr. Jones’s trap. Her personality is superficial and adolescent. For example, when she arrives at the big meeting in Chapter 1, Orwell writes, “Mollie … Came mincing daintily in, chewing a lump of sugar. She took a place near the front and began flirting her white mane, hoping to draw attention to the red ribbons it was plaited with” (27). Mollie is the only animal not to fight in the Battle of the Cowshed, instead hiding in her stall. She eventually flees the farm and is last seen, bedecked in ribbons, eating sugar and letting her new owner stroke her nose. Mollie represents the class of nobles who, unwilling to conform to the new regime, fled Russia after the Revolution.

DOGS
Dogs three & Puppies
Blue Bell PG 2
Jessie PG 2
Pincher Pg 2
Puppies Pg 26 & 41

However, Napoleon takes way Blue Bell and Jessie’s babies from their mothers and he educates them while they are young for evil purpose. PG 26 [Nine young puppies]

Jessie and Bluebell - Two dogs, each of whom gives birth early in the novel. Napoleon takes the puppies in order to “educate” them.
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/characters.html

Pg 41. Nine younger sturdy dogs were Napoleon’s body guards. They chase off the first off Napoleon’s annoyance Snowball.

Just; as Joseph Stalin did to Leon Trotsky in 1924 after Lenin’s death. Stalin orchestrated an alliance against Trotsky that included himself. This way Stalin had become the unquestioned dictator of the Soviet Union. He had Trotsky expelled just as Napoleon had Snowball expelled from the Animal Farm

Pincher PG 2—dog [Father of nine puppies]
Nine Puppies Pg 26 Napoleon takes the puppies away from their mothers to retrain and educate them. They reappear in Pg 41 Napoleon’s body Guards and his protectors.

Chapter Ten Bluebell, Jessie and Pincher were dead Pg 97. Exodus 1:8 Now there arose up a new King over Egypt which knew not Joseph [The memory of Mr. Jones is long gone]
The Puppies PG 26 Reappear PG 41-The Puppies

Offspring of Jessie and Bluebell, raised by Napoleon to be his security force, and may be reference to the fact that Stalin's rise to power was helped by his appointment as General Secretary of the Communist Party by Lenin in 1922, in which role he used his powers of appointment, promotion and demotion to quietly pack the party with his own supporters. The puppies represent Stalin's secret police or the KGB.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm

the Dogs
Nine puppies, which Napoleon confiscates and secludes in a loft. Napoleon rears them into fierce, elitist dogs that act as his security guards. The dogs are the only animals other than the pigs that are given special privileges. They also act as executioners, tearing out the throats of animals that confess to treachery. The dogs represent the NKVD and more specifically the KGB, agencies Joseph Stalin fostered and used to terrorize and commit atrocities upon the Soviet Union’s populace.
http://www.gradesaver.com/animal-farm/study-guide/character-list/

Bluebell, Jessie, and Pincher
The dogs. When Bluebell and Jessie give birth to puppies, Snowball confiscates them and secludes them in a loft, where he transforms them into fierce, elitist guard dogs.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GOAT
Muriel pg 2. The white goat who is ignorant she doesn’t know how to read. She just recites from memory which doesn’t serve the animals well. Pg 24 Muriel could read somewhat better than the dogs

Muriel - The white goat who reads the Seven Commandments to Clover whenever Clover suspects the pigs of violating their prohibitions.
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/animalfarm/characters.html
Muriel
A wise old goat who is friends with all of the animals on the farm. She, like Benjamin and Snowball, is one of the few animals on the farm who can read (with some difficulty, she has to spell the words out first) and helps Clover discover that the Seven Commandments have been continually changed. She possibly represents the same category as Benjamin, though she dies near the end of the book from old age.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm

Muriel
The white goat. Muriel can read fairly well and helps Clover decipher the alterations to the Seven Commandments. Muriel is not opinionated, but she represents a subtle, revelatory influence because of her willingness to help bring things to light (as opposed to Benjamin).
http://www.gradesaver.com/animal-farm/study-guide/character-list/

Pg 19. To learn the Commandments by heart

However, she adds to Commandments for example: [only memorization]

Pg 18. 4. No animal shall sleep in a bed. She justifies why the pigs sleep in the bed by stating the Commandment as this;

Pg 52. Muriel She said [gravely] Thesaurus [badly] now read me the Fourth Commandment does it not say something about never sleeping in a bed?

With Some difficulty Muriel spelt out.
‘It says, “No animal shall sleep in a bed with Sheets,” ‘she announced finally!

This moment please Squealer because Muriel placed this matter in its proper perspective right into Napoleon’s hands.

However; the one time Muriel had it right Pg 92 & 93 Spelled in silence the deadly word Knacker

Chapter Ten Muriel was Dead Pg 97
Exodus 1:8 Now there arose up a new King over Egypt which knew not Joseph [The memory of Mr. Jones is long gone]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Birds
Moses
A tame raven that is Mr. Jones’s “especial pet.” He is a spy, a gossip, and a “clever talker” (37). He is also the only animal not present for Old Major’s meeting. Moses gets in the way of the pigs’ efforts to spread Animalism by inventing a story about an animal heaven called Sugarcandy Mountain. Moses disappears for several years during Napoleon’s rule. When he returns, he still insists on the existence of Sugarcandy Mountain. Moses represents religion, which gives people hope of a better life in heaven. His name connects him to the Judeo-Christian religions specifically, but he can be said to represent the spiritual alternative in general. The pigs dislike Moses’s stories of Sugarcandy Mountain, just as the Soviet government opposed religion, not wanting its people to subscribe to a system of belief outside of communism. Though the Soviet government suppressed religion aggressively, the pigs on Animal Farm let Moses come and go as he pleases and even give him a ration of beer when he returns from his long absence.
http://www.gradesaver.com/animal-farm/study-guide/character-list/

The animals [Napoleon] did not trust the Raven. Just as Noah didn’t trust the Raven because it failed to return and that is why Noah sent the Dove Genesis 8:8

Also the animals hated Moses Pg 13 He told tales and did no work:
I say this in the end the Animal admired the Moses because he was free of Napoleon because he had the wings of flight to escape Napoleon Rules.

Examples of Mistrust Pg 13 Moses who was Mr. Jones’s especial pet, was a spy and a tale-bearer but he was also clever talker.

Chapter 9 Pg 89 Moses the Raven suddenly reappeared on the farm after an absence of several years.

Moses Chapter Ten Pg 97 Remembers the Rebellion against Mr. Jones

Pigeons—Messengers /Spy for Napoleon Pg 28 sent out flights of pigeons whose instructions were to mingle with the animals on neighboring farms, tell them the story of the REBELLION

Black Minorca Chicken [Hens]- Baby: top of the head and back is black. Wing tips, chest and abdomen are white. Mature: white skin. Plumage is all black. Comb bright red, white earlobes, shanks and toes dark slate. Lays a white egg. Weight: Female 4.5 lbs. Male 5.5 lbs. Pg 58

For the first time since the expulsion of Jones there was something resembling a rebellion. Led by three young Black Minorca pullets, the hens made a determined effort to thwart Napoleon’s wishes. Their method was to fly up to the rafters and there lay their eggs, which smashed to pieces on the floor. Pg. 59
The Hens
Represent the Kulaks. They destroy their eggs instead of handing them to the higher powers, just as during collectivisation some Kulaks sabotaged machinery or killed their livestock.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sheep—Napoleon successful in controlling the sheep pg 37 Four Leg Good! Two Leg Bad. gullible Pg 102 Four Legs good. Two Legs are Better!

The Sheep
Represent the mass proletariat, manipulated to support Napoleon in spite of his treachery. They show limited understanding of the situations but support him anyway, and regularly chant "Four legs good, Two legs bad". At the end of the novel, one of the Seven Commandments is changed after the pigs learn to walk on two legs, so they shout "Four legs good, two legs better". They can be relied on by the pigs to shout down any dissent from others.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Farm

the Sheep
The sheep are loyal to the tenets of Animal Farm, often breaking into a chorus of “Four legs good, two legs bad” and later, “Four legs good, two legs better!” The Sheep--true to the typical symbolic meaning of “sheep”--represent those people who have little understanding of their situation and thus are willing to follow their government blindly.

Three Cows start the rebellion pg 14. Battle of Cowshed

Rats and Rabbits Pg 7. Comrades, he said here is a point that must be settled. The Wild creatures, such as rats and Rabbits are they our friends or are they our enemies? Let us put it to the Vote, I propose this question to the meeting: Are rats Comrades?

The vote was taken at once, and it was agreed by an overwhelming majority that rats were comrades.

The Rats
May[weasel words] represent some of the nomadic people in the far north of the USSR.
