3 Symbolism in Animal Farm Essay

4 Prompt In the book Animal Farm, George Orwell uses animals to symbolically represent humans and our creations of government and society. Orwell allegorically uses animals and their social groups to criticize Joseph Stalin's rise to power, the overall nature of mankind, and the many difficulties that we must all face. After reading the story, what animal do you believe best symbolizes either virtuous or negative human behavior? In a detailed essay, identify the animal you have chosen and what behavior this animal symbolizes. Be sure to include specific examples and details from the novel to support your response.
