the bourgeoise and elite class of Soviet Russia. Thus he led them first by uniting them against government then he used his tactics to exploit the government to react because in this way he could reach to his goal that is establishment of utopian government. This speech of Old Major is parallel to the one of the finest speeches of 20th century is of Martin Luther King in Washington DC on 1963 In the exploitation of black people of America to get equal rights as that of white people.
“I say to you, my friends, that even though we must face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal.’ I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be ab le to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today!”
Irony is one of the most common figurative language component that Orwell uses in the Animal Farm.
It is defined as any condition that happens exactly opposite as was expected. There are various types of irony as Verbal Irony is such situation in which a sentence contradicts itself or when the truth lies behind any idea is pointing to opposite direction when it is being said. In the Animal Farm last most important commandment is a verbal irony which is “I trust that every animal here appreciates the sacrifice that Comrade Napoleon has made in taking this extra labor upon himself. Do not imagine that leadership is a pleasure”. (Chapter 4) In the pages of history violation of this commandment is in the form of Stalin’s superiority and preference in case of providing facilities and resources. All the economical resources and authority, power was in few hands as Stalin was root of all the cruelity, social injustice, absurdity, unequality, concept of slavery and a great deal of massacre for the sake to hold all the power and to subjugate common people biiterly that was happening at that time in Soviet Russia under the totalitarian rule that was in the hands of Stalin. Situational Irony is such a condition in which any event happens but is exactly opposite as was expected. There are many events that are evidences of situational irony as all the events when 7 commandments are violated “by the evening, however, Napoleon appeared to be somewhat better, and the following morning Squealer was able to tell them that he was well on the way to recovery. By the evening of that day Napoleon was back at work, and on the next day it was learned that he had instructed Whymper to purchase in Willingdon some booklets on brewing and distilling.” (chapter-5) This incident is that could change the school of hought of all the animals because in the start as they rebel against Mr. Jones the former head of Manor’s Farm but with the passage of time things undergo such a horrible, horrible change that pigs who belong to intelligent animal class started to behave even in a worse manner than humans also and they started to drink alchol that is the negation to one of the 7 commandments that were proposed by Old Major and later on Snowball presented this commandments. In the Russian history thoses booklets were the trainig points and use of tactics even psychological ways to overpower the whole Russia and alcohol represents lust of power that engages the man carelessly about anyother thing except to establish his own power rule. Dramatic Irony is the type of irony in which writer creates any situation in such a beautifying way that reader lnows what is happening in the piece of literary work but characters are unaware to unerrstand that point. It is one of best quality of a literary exercise that ivoloves the reader because writer develops a base about the situation in the mind of reader but at the same time
