Animal Farm Chapter 4

By George Orwell

Chapter 4

  • We are introduced to Mr. Pilkington and Mr. Frederick. Each owns one of the neighboring farms. In short, the animals are working on their public image.
  • But it's not really working. See, the neighboring humans are worried that their animals will rise up if they don't squash Animal Farm.
  • Snowball, a tactician extraordinaire, prepares the animals for the impending invasion of the humans.
  • Blood! Battle! Exclamation Points! There are some minor casualties (animals that don't really matter, like sheep) and Snowball is wounded. 
  • Boxer thinks he kills a man and feels super guilty about it. (The stable-lad was only temporarily knocked out though, so he ends up being fine.)
  • Snowball gets a prize. Rather, he gives himself a prize: "Animal Hero, First Class."
