The novel Animal Farm by George Orwell was an allegory about the Russian Revolution in which the author used a farm and its members to symbolize major characters and their actions In this composition I will reveal to you many of Joseph Stalin s important contributions and how they relate to the actions of Napoleon from Animal Farm I will break this topic down into the following three parts their rise to power Stalins Five Year Plan and their use and abuse of authority When Lenin died in 1924 a struggle for power began between Trotsky Snowball and Stalin Napoleon Trotsky was a brilliant individual but Stalin was just a simple person whose power was based on allegiances with other members of the communist party rather than on ideas This is contrary to how Snowball was the more intelligent one of the two and all the sheep and pigs were loyal to Napoleon Trotsky believed in Russias trying to spread communism all over the world as Snowballs purpose with animalism and Stalin was more focused on the prosperity of Russia as was Napoleon about the wellness of the farm By 1929 Stalin had gathered enough resources to exile Trotsky from Russia just as Napoleon did to Snowball Stalin believed that Russia was one hundred years behind the west He devised his Five Year Plan to bring Russia up to speed with the rest of the world This plan included many of Trotskys ideas which Stalin had previously opposed We can relate this to the building of the windmill in Animal Farm and how Napoleon was against the idea until after the expulsion of Snowball Russias economy was centralized on agriculture with over twenty five million farms Unfortunately the majority of these barely produced enough to feed the families of those who worked them Farmers who had a surplus of produce were called kulaks Stalin decided he would liquidate the kulaks as a class
