Animal Farm vs 1984 12 April 1999 Animal Farm Vs. 1984 In his books, Animal Farm and 1984, George Orwell creates two similar societies attempting to achieve perfection through tyranny but the environment of each supports a different culture. In both Animal Farm and 1984 the ruling society depresses the individual in order to achieve his total obedience. In Animal Farm the environment is static – that of a rigid society- that of a small space -for it is in a farm. Because it is so simple, so unde

George Orwell’s Animal Farm provides an unusual outlook on the Russian Revolution and its leaders by using animals to represent their human counterparts.

In a future where there is no love, no science, and everyone is equal and of one entity, one man defies the group to be his own person. “I owe nothing to my brothers, nor do I gather debts from them. I ask none to live for me, nor do I live for any others. I cover no man’s soul, nor is my soul theirs to cover.” (Rand 96)

Introduction: Aristotle wrote about many subjects that can be grouped into five general divisions: logic, physical works, psychological works, natural history works, and philosophical works. One of the little known physical works concerned meteorology. Aristotle’s views on meteorology are fascinating, but many of the views were not accurate. This paper compares only a few of his views to actual

This character will represent the reader in this new alien world or society, allowing the reader to form a link between his or her own world and this new one. Because these characters are placed in unfamiliar settings, a way is presented to defamiliarize our own society and perhaps even look at it in a new way, or from a
