Behind the Author
Reasons and influences that caused George Orwell to write Animal Farm are all mentioned in the Democracy section where it explains why he prefers Democracy over Dictatorship. Orwell has experienced positions from an assistant in a book store to a Tribune, he helped fought in the Spanish civil war and then became a writer. As a writer he already has an arsenal of experiences which he can put in words, his experience in Spain and in this case with Animal Farm, his political views. Orwell effectively expresses his preferences of Democracy through a story pictured through a farm of animals, he cleverly symbolised historical figures with animals presenting a form of mockery on famous names such as Stalin and Karl Marx. Orwell grew up observing political differences and the behaviour of people with statuses, this is the main reason why he is a very opinionated person and this is why he is successful in expressing his opinions through his writings.
" If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever."
- George Orwell
