Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy.Whatever goes upon four legs or has wings, is a friend.No animal shall sleep in a bedNo animal shall drink alcohol.No animal shall kill other animal.No animal shall wear clothes.All animals are equal.
Old Major, a prize-winning boar, gathers the animals of the Manor Farm for a meeting in the big barn. He tells them he had a dream he has hadwhere all animals live together with no human beings controling them. He teaches them a song called “Beasts of England,” in which his dream vision is lyrically described. He encourages the animals to work towards a paradise like this.
The animals greet Major's vision with great enthusiasm, but sadly Old Major dies three days later... In honour of Major's vision, three younger pigs (Snowball, Napoleon, and Squealer) formulate his main principles into a philosophy called Animalism. They paint his 7 main principles on the side of a barn.
Late one night, the animals manage to defeat the farmer Mr. Jones in a battle, running him off the land. They rename the property Animal Farm and dedicate themselves to achieving Major’s dream. The cart-horse Boxer devotes himself to the cause , committing his strength to the farm and adopting a motto: “I will work harder.” Snowball concocts a idea to build an electricity-generating windmill, but Napoleon opposes the plan.
At the meeting to vote on whether to take up the project, Snowball gives a passionate speech in favour to build the windmill. Although Napoleon gives only a brief retort, he makes a strange noise, and nine attack dogs burst into the barn and chase Snowball out of the farm. Napoleon assumes leadership of Animal Farm and declares that there will be no more meetings. From that point on, he asserts, the pigs alone will make all of the decisions—for the good of every animal.
Napoleon now quickly changes his mind about the windmill, and the animals, especially Boxer, devote their efforts to making it. One day, after a storm, the animals find the windmill . Napoleon claims that Snowball returned to the farm to sabotage the windmill. He stages a great purge, during which various animals who have allegedly participated in Snowball’s great conspiracy (meaning any animal who opposes Napoleon’s uncontested leadership) meet instant death at the teeth of the attack dogs. Boxer has taken up a second maxim, “Napoleon is always right”
Napoleon hosts a human farmer named Mr. Pilkington at a dinner and declares his intent to ally himself with the human farmers . He also changes the name of Animal Farm back to the Manor Farm, claiming that this title is the “correct” one. Looking in the window at the party, the animals can no longer tell which are the pigs and which are the human beings THE END!
