I intend to write an essay in which I explain how power corrupts the main characters in ‘Animal Farm’. Firstly I will talk about the rebellion; it takes place after the animals become fed up of Mr and Mrs Jones the first two human characters that we are introduced to in the novel.

Orwell positions the reader to see the effects of a dictatorship especially how it can control a whole society. By establishing a power base, the pigs are able to manipulate the other animals in their rise to power. In the early stages of the revolution, Napoleon trains the puppies of Jessie and Bluebell to be at his command by removing them from life on the farm and ‘brainwashing’ them.

But Napoleon and Snowball battle for power, and when Napoleon wins that battle, everything goes down the drain from there. The pigs get to make all the decisions and no other animal can say or do anything about it without getting slaughtered.

Without the help of another god he would've turned into a pig himself. I do admit that he is clever himself, but I don't think he could've survived without gods helping him.

Their new brigade of porkinistas attacked the wolf complex with machine guns and rocket launchers and slaughtered the cruel wolf oppressors, sending a clear message to the rest of the hemisphere not to meddle in their affairs. Then the pigs set up a model democracy with free education, affordable health care, and cheap housing for
He became absolutely obsessed with hunting and killing pigs. At first it really was just to feed all of the boys, but more towards the end of the story it was for the please of killing the pig to feel powerful and pure primeval. Allowing Jack to become this kind of monster was another mistake that the boys made. Because once he changed other boys started to follow until it was just Ralph and Piggy by themselves and all other boys were in Jack’s tribe. Of course then Piggy was killed.
