Satire is used to criticise humanity’s creations, creating a mutual understanding between composer and audience. Through the use of literary devices, the flaws and hypocritical stances are identified within each text. This notion is explored in George Orwell’s allegory ‘Animal Farm,’ which is an allegorical representation of the Russian Revolution, illustrating flaws in our society with a mixture of black humour and critical attitude. The flaws of the human condition corrupt the dreams of Old Major. Napoleon and Snowball originally strive to fulfil Old Major’s dreams but due to the self centeredness of Napoleon, among others, the tenets of Animalism are systematically undermined throughout the novel.
He uses many themes to convey his main points to this allegory, such as corruption, abuse of power and social order. The corruption of the self-appointed authorities of Animalism is also a crucial theme portrayed in Animal Farm. At the beginning of the story, we find the pigs in much the same predicament as the other animals on the farm. They are all exploited ruthlessly by an authority which cares little for their plight. Playing a leading role in the ensuing revolution the pigs find themselves with more and more power over the trusting and naïve population of Animal Farm.
Squealer is in Animal Farm to illustrate the effect propaganda has on the masses, and how the masses easily change their minds. The allegory fits because the way Napoleon tyrannizes his people without opposition is similar to Stalin's regime. Squealer employs techniques from the entire spectrum of propaganda. He uses confusing vocabulary, impenetrable statistics, and limits the terms of any debate. HE uses glittering generalities, like "freedom" (from Jones) and "justice" (against Snowball).
Squealer Manipulative Ways Animal Farm, written by George Orwell is an allegory reflecting the horrifying effects of a totalitarian government. One of Orwell’s characters, Squealer (based on Vyacheslav Molotov) is a clever and very persuasive pig. His job: to promote Napoleons personal image and later on, become his intermediary. He cunningly justifies “Comrade Napoleons” actions when the other animals begin to question his authority. He exploits the animals on Animal Farm by using erroneous information and abusing their emotions as techniques to sway them.
Insofar as I can make-out, people are uncomfortable to know how animals die and to assume such a responsibility. When I've showed people videos of --seemingly credible-- factory farm footage they either react in two different ways: (1) either they quiver-away or plea me to turn it off (2) or they uncomfortably scoff at how ridiculously cynical it all is. Albeit, appalled, this doesn't generally discourage people to stop eating meat altogether. They simply look past it when they go-off and buy animal-based products. The fact of the matter is that the animal products we buy are the source of considerable pain and cruelty.
The novel Animal Farm by George Orwell and the movie V for Vendetta demonstrate the dangers of bureaucratic leadership bodies, as they abuse language to their advantage, betray the loyalty entrusted to them, and eventually shift toward totalitarianism. In George Orwell’s Animal Farm, the dominant species also used lies and propaganda to secure their power. Squealer was the pig who served as the public relations person for Napoleon, the dictator of Animal Farm. Squealer used several techniques to persuade all the other animals. For example, he would take the Seven Commandments, the de-facto constitution of Animal Farm, and distort any connections the animals made between the actions of the pigs and the commandments.
He really lets you see the beautiful things in something so dark and creepy. Burton’s actions like bullying and judging people for what they look like on the outside and also what they are able to do. He reveals in his film that judging people and bullying can really hurt someone utilizing close ups and lighting to really show expressions on people’s faces when they meet Edward those two cinematic techniques also show what people feel when something happens in Edward Scissorhands. Burton uses close ups in order to express emotions when people are talking. When he uses close ups it really helps convey
Just thinking about the skinning of an animal terrifies me, but it saddens me more to know that there are people in the world that can kill animals just for the profit that it can bring to them. When an animal is captured, it is put through unbelievable pain. It sometimes drives the animal to tear through its own flesh and bone, sometimes the animal even loose teeth because they bite on the trap. Sometimes the animals are left suffering for hours before the hunters show up to kill the animal by stumping on the animal. This type of animal cruelty is legal for people with a license to hunt, but for those who are not legalized hunters can face many years in prison and be fined thousands of dollars.
The barn is a symbol because this was the place the pigs painted the seven commandments and then added their revisions, which represents the collective memory of a modern nation. The pigs did this to create Animalism and to ensure that the pigs would continue to rule over all of the animals. The working-class animals would puzzle over the changes but accept them. If the working-class believes history of lies from their oppressors, the will be less likely to question oppressive practices. The windmill is a symbol of the pigs’ manipulation of the other animals for their own gain.
What can also be seen is a role reversal where it is the animals that are the master which humans aspire to be, and the Yahoos submissive with their beastly and inhuman qualities. Also present within Gulliver's Travels is the satire of humans portrayed in a negative light, inviting the reader to realise their own vices present in their own society. This invitation of the reader also leads to the different types of readings one may gather from the Fourth Part of Gulliver’s Travels. It is either a 'Hard' or 'Soft' reading, theories suggested by Neil Chudgar. These five points are able to confirm Swift's misanthropic approach to the representation of humans and the virtuous approach to the representation of the Houyhnhnms.
