As part of the Underground Library Society, I have created a poster for my chosen book, Animal Farm. The ominous pig I drew, Napoleon, who himself symbolizes Stalin, represents communism and the evil that surrounds it. The other animals are drawn in solid black to symbolize their lack of identity and worth under oppression. I chose darker colors for the grim, hopeless reality and red to represent all the blood lost throughout the novel.
The center quote reflects the core of the novel – the distortion of ideals and class segregation. When history repeats itself, society tends to reestablish all that it has worked against, including classes. This novel serves as social commentary and criticism as well as a warning to mankind.
