Animal Farm Summary The book starts in the barnyard of Mr Jones Manor Farm The animals gather at a meeting led by the white boar Major Major shows them that no animal in England is free He also explains that the stuff that they produce is taken by man and the animals do not benefit The only thing that man gives is food to survive so more money can be made off of the animals Majors lets them know that man is the source of all problems and should be eliminated He proposes that all of the animals should avoid mans habits Above all Major says to the animals that they cannot kill one another that they are all equal A few days later Major dies but his message remains in the hearts and minds of the animals Under the leadership of the pigs who are clearly the more intelligent of the animals they strike against their human master and manage to get rid of him After the rebellion under the direction of Napoleon the most outspoken pig and Snowball the most articulate pig the animals continue to work the farm with success The animals now come up with a set of rules to run their society They are labeled the Seven Commandments of Animalism and are posted on the barn wall 1 Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy 2 Whatever goes upon four legs or has wings is a friend 3 No animal shall wear clothes 4 No animal shall sleep in a bed 5 No animal shall drink alcohol 6 No animal shall kill any other animal 7 All animals are equal The animals succeed at running the farm for a little while They finish all of their work with stunning efficiency and every week hold ceremonies to celebrate the rebellion and to plan work Meanwhile the pigs as leaders are taking bigger food rations for themselves
