The use of the fable form helps one to examine the certain elements of human nature which can produce a Stalin and enable him to seize power. Orwell, does however, set his fable in familiar events of current history. Old Major, a eminent

Napoleon is a blueprint for all revolutions because he starts out professing the Old Major’s philosophy of Animalism, but turns to totalitarianism. First, Napoleon’s ban on the foundation of the Revolution, the song “Beasts of England,” represents the death of the Revolution and
