    Midsummer’s Eve Battle vs. the Russian Revolution
    I. Thesis: The events leading up to the Midsummer’s Eve Battle are directly parallel with the Events leading up to the over through of the Czar of Russia.

    A. The Midsummer’s Eve Battle and the Russian Revolution both had the same
    incentive, the lower class or animals were suffering.
    1. The animals were severely neglected by Mr. Jones just as the Czar and Czarina of Russia did nothing to help their lower class.
    2. The Russian serfs were slaves of their land, the nobles owning the land were free to treat the serfs however they wanted.
    3. “Let us face it: our lives are miserable, laborious, and short. . . . No animal in England knows the meaning of happiness or leisure after he is a year old. No animal in England is free.” Describes the lives of both animals and serfs.

    B. Neither Mr. Jones nor the Czar of Russia helped their lower class, they ignored the problem until nothing could be done to stop the Revolution.
    1. The Czar and Czarina were so worried about their frail son, Alexei that they did not pay any attention to the impoverished serfs.
    2. Mr. Jones was so worried about losing his lawsuit that he completely ignored his animals.
    3. “ His men were idle and dishonest. . . . When Mr. Jones got back, he immediately went to sleep on the drawing room sofa with the News of the World over his face, so that when evening came, the animals were still unfed.”

    C. Both the animals and the lower class of Russia snapped over the mistreatment they were getting, starting a Revolution.
    1. The animals snapped when they were treated cruelly after a long period of neglect.
    2. The Russian Revolution happened after the lower class could not continue to live in their present conditions, ending the old government.
    3. “This was more than the hungery animals could. . . “

    Stalin the pig

    wait it's not about animals? /s
    I. Both the Russian working class and the animals on the farm fight their hardest for a cause they don’t understand.
    A. The Russian working class fought many battles, yet they didn’t understand what was happening.
    1. The October revolution was fought by the working class and they elected the Bolsheviks to run their country.
    2. Purges by Stalin proved that they didn’t see what Stalin would turn into, or what he stood for.
    3. They fought WWII and stalled the Blitzkrieg, for a government that was killing them.
    B. The animals fight battles in the name of Animal Farm, which forsakes them in the end.
    1. The sheep blindly yell “Four legs good, two legs bad”
    2. The animals fight off Mr. Jones immediately after the revolution, yet their hardest fighter, Boxer, still can’t remember the alphabet.
    3. They defend the windmill from the other farmers, while their conditions continue to deteriorate.
    C. The Russian’s will parallels the animal’s will to fight for their country, which mistreats them.
    1. They both fought off armies with a disadvantage against them.

    SPLIT THE SKY ASUNDER
    Napoleon's songs, mottos and the rewriting of the commandments mirror the methods Stalin had used.
    -The change of the seven commandments represent Stalin making his friends disappear from his posters
    -The song Beasts of England was used to incite a revolution much like "To the Men of England" was used before the bolshevik revolution.
    -The use of propaganda to instill hope and cover up defeats

    Russia vs. Germany

    A. In Animal Farm the Timber Deal represented the disloyalty between Napoleon and Frederick

    B. The Non Agression Pact was an agreement that was broken between Stalin and Hitler.

    C. Orwell uses these two events to symbolize the corruption between the two most powerful countries at the time.

    Napoleon's Timber Deal represents the Non-Aggression Pact
    I. In Animal Farm by George Orwell, Napoleon's Timber Deal directly mirrors the Nazi-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact.
    A. The relationships between Animal Farm, Foxwood, and Pinchfield parallel the relationships between Russia, Britain, and Germany.
    1. “…there were constant rumours that Napoleon was about to enter into a definite business agreement either with Mr. Pilkington of Foxwood or with Mr. Frederick of Pinchfield—but never, it was noticed, with both simultaneously.” (p. 66)
    2. “The Soviets also kept negotiating with Britain and France, but in the end Stalin chose to reach an agreement with Germany. By doing so he hoped to keep the Soviet Union at peace with Germany and to gain time to build up the Soviet military establishment,…” (Britannica)
    3. Orwell shows in the book the real life situation of how Stalin was deciding whether to side with Germany or England but in the end he chose Germany because they posed a major threat if they went to war against each other. In Animal Farm there were rumors that Foxwood was going to attack one day.
    B. Quickly after the Timber Deal went bad, Frederick and his men from Foxwood go to animal and destroy the windmill, which represents Germany defying the Non-Aggression Pact by attacking Russia.
    1. “Frederick shouted to his men to get out while the going was good, and the next moment the cowardly enemy was running for dear life.” (p. 104)
    2. “The Nonaggression Pact became a dead letter on June 22, 1941, when Nazi Germany, after having invaded much of western and central Europe, attacked the Soviet Union without warning in Operation Barbarossa.” (Britannica)
    3. Even though Germany had a much better army and killed more than 25million Russians they had to retreat because they could not handle the harsh winters in Russia.
    C. After the deal, Pilkington would not partner with Napoleon which parallels the western powers refusing to partner with Russia.
    1. “one of them bearing a scrap of paper from Pilkington. On it was penciled he words: ‘Serves you right.’” (p. 102)
    2. Britain did not want to have any relations with Russia anymore?
    3. Orwell
    D. Conclusion
