Activity #3: Literary Analysis Challenge Review 1. Develop a topic sentence that uses part of the prompt and addresses why Napoleon’s action is ironic. 2. Develop 1-3 sentences that explain and gives evidence to prove the topic sentence. Prompt—In chapter 3 of AF, Napoleon takes the nine puppies who are newly weaned to “educate them.” Considering points against the humans in Old Major’s speech, how is this action ironic?
In George Orwell’s Animal Farm chapter 3, Napoleon’s action of taking the 9 puppies to “educate them” is ironic because it is similar to the action of the humans which Old Major claimed to be wrong. In his speech, Old Major reminds Clover of the cruel way that the humans have taken away her foals for their own purposes. Similarly, Napoleon takes away the puppies from their mothers, for his own purpose of “indoctrinating” them in his viewpoints.
