Orwells second chapter is drenched with metaphors most of which will not come to light until later in the novel The first is old Majors death This represents the end to the older regime the initial revolution Now someone else will have to step into authority Secondly Orwell strangely describes a pig named Squealer The name sounds fairly pig-like but his actions dont Supposedly Squealer has a special ability to persuade others Orwell boasts he could turn black into white Obviously a pig like this could be used by the right people animals Next the author tells us about a peculiar raven named Moses who is the especial pet of Mr Jones All the animals consider him a spy and hate him they say he tells lies about Sugarcandy Mountain and does no work Boxer and Clover two cart horses are described as the most faithful disciples of Snowball and Napoleon Although they lack the intelligence of the pigs they serve the horses can convince other animals to follow the cause using simple arguments Orwell uses chapter 2 to really make Mr Jones into a bad guy although he admits that he was at one time a good master Mr Jones main problem is that he drinks too much and neglects the farm Even his men are idle and dishonest Soon the animals are fed up with Jones pardon the pun after not being fed for over a day so they organize and successfully carry out the long- awaited revolt The animals rename Manor Farm Animal Farm yet agree not to live in the house Yet some of the elite pigs have already adopted some of Mans ways Snowball and Napoleon have suddenly taught themselves to read and write and soon a list of 7 Commandments is written on the tarred wall Unfortunately only a few of the animals can actually read the rules
