This paper tells about the characterization of the Animal Farm. The source for this paper, the writer got from George Orwell novel’s Animal Farm. This novel was printed at 1945, and this novel gets a good attention from the readers. The purposes in writing this paper are, to know how the authors describes the characters and to know how Animal Farm creates those characters in order to create an interesting story. This novel’s most famous in the West as a stinging critique of the history and rhetoric of the Russian Revolution. Retelling the story of the emergence and development of Soviet communism in the form of an animal fable, Animal Farm allegorizes the rise to power of the dictator Joseph Stalin. In the novella, the overthrow of the human oppressor Mr. Jones by a democratic coalition of animals quickly gives way to the consolidation of power among the pigs. Much like the Soviet intelligentsia, the pigs establish themselves as the ruling class in the new society. The struggle for preeminence between Leon Trotsky and Stalin emerges in the rivalry between the pigs Snowball and Napoleon. In both the historical and fictional cases, the idealistic but politically less powerful figure (Trotsky and Snowball) is expelled from the revolutionary state by the malicious and violent usurper of power (Stalin and Napoleon). The purges and show trials with which Stalin eliminated his enemies and solidified his political base find expression in Animal Farm as the false confessions and executions of animals whom Napoleon distrusts following the collapse of the windmill. Stalin’s tyrannical rule and eventual abandonment of the founding principles of the Russian Revolution are represented by the pigs’ turn to violent government and the adoption of human traits and behaviors, the trappings of their original oppressors. In this paper, the writer uses descriptive method. This method is used to describe clearly the characterization of the animals. In collecting the data, the writer went to many libraries and looked for some books, which have relation with this paper. The writer also got other sources in collecting the data that is from internet.
