If he really wanted to lead the animals then he wouldn’t end up looking and acting like a human being.

The only good human being is a dead one.’ Snowball is a ruthless leader who is committed to the revolution, so committed in fact that he indicates he’d be willing to die for Animal Farm.

Orwell’s writing makes this moment in the novel so moving, for the reader, by his use of emotive language and characterisation of the animals in relation to the Russian revolution.
