Animal Farm by George Orwell

What happens when the animals on Manor Farm revolt?  

(The password is:  bulldogs)

Discuss any of the following Questions in a Comment:

1. Compare and contrast Napoleon and Snowball. What techniques do they use in their struggle for power? Does Snowball represent a morally legitimate political alternative to the corrupt leadership of Napoleon?

2. Fiction would seem a rather indirect method of political commentary; if Orwell had written an academic essay, he could have named names, pointed to details, and proven his case more systematically. What different opportunities of expression does a fable offer its author?

3. From whose perspective is Animal Farm told? Why would Orwell have chosen such a perspective?
