George Orwell had written Animal Farm at the time of the Russian Revolution. He had based Animal Farm on the historical events that had occurred by having the characters be me…taphors for leaders and social classes of the time. For information on the specific metaphors, go to this link: What I enjoyed Animal Farm a lot.
He generally represents the Czars of Russia, but mainly is representing Nicholas Csar (Tzar) II and the last of the old government. He was the cruel owner of the animals.
by cussing and making fun of it so they wanted to know the reason they are similar to them
character names i can't remember, however the pigs attacking the farmer is the Russian revolution. in russia this resulted in communism, and in animal farm they were all appar…ently equal. in communism there became a dictator, and in animal farm the pigs became the dictators. so there were people above everyone else, which is not the idea of communism. all the people/other animals get treated badly. propoganda is used to make the leaders seem good, in animal farm there is a pig named squealer (not sure if that's spelled right) who lies sayign that the laws have never changed when they had. eg alcohol. in the end communism doesn't work in russia and in animal farm the animal are as bad as they were, which is all symbolic of the Russian revolution.
It was really bad in both the novel and the revolution
The pigs represent the leaders of the Bolshevik Revolution and the Soviet Union . Specifically, Snowball was meant as an allegory to Leon Trotsky , and Napoleon was used t…o satirize Joseph Stalin .

the capitalist government of England and the United States
Animal Farm represents the Russian Revolution because many of the characters share similar characteristics with people from the time period. For example, Snowball is a lot lik…e Tratski because he was a very good speaker, etc. It is the same with how Napoleon represents Stallin by opposing Snowball and using police for and others to control the animals.
Animal Farm is meant to be a microcosm of how society behaves when an anarchy is presented. In the book, the animals overthrow a totalitarian government (the Czar of Russia) i…n order to create a communistic society in which everyone contributes, and everyone shares the rewards of their hard work. But in communistic societies there is usually an individual or a small group who seizes power, in this case, Napoleon the Pig, which may be a symbol for Stalin.
