Animal Farm was written in 1945 by Eric Arthur Blair better known by his pen name as George Orwell It is a satirical allegory that suggests a comparison to the Russian Revolution The novel shines light on the problems that occurred while communism was being experimented with and while the dictator Joseph Stalin was in rule Theres three main ways Napoleon the pig very closely represents Joseph Stalin that include starvation of their people working the citizens to death with hard labour and also banishment of those who were believed to be smarter than them One way in which Joseph Stalin and Napoleon are similar is through both leaders use of starvation as a method of getting what they want from their people This is shown when Napoleon decides to take the hens eggs away to sell them and the hens made a determined effort to thwart Napoleons wishes Their method was to fly up to the rafters and lay their eggs which smashed to pieces on the floor Napoleon acted swiftly and ruthlessly He ordered the hens rations to be stopped and decreed that any animal giving as much as a grain of corn to a hen should be punished by death Orwell 51 This demonstrates how Napoleon was starving the hens until they gave in and gave him what he wanted from them their eggs This relates to Joseph Stalin as how in 1932-1933 he starved the Ukrainians and blocked all food from coming into the country until they resisted collectivization and he got what he wanted Just like Napoleon Stalin had a policy which was any man woman or child caught taking even a handful of grain from a collective farm will be executed or deported Joseph was determined to crush all traces of Ukrainian nationalism and with this method he killed an estimated seven million Ukraine people Hard labour is yet another way Napoleon is proved to represent the leader Joseph
