END OF CHAPTER
Prepare a written overview of the chapter « Animal Farm», remembering what you have learnt in the chapter .Present the documents you have studied (in class, at home, and the one you chose for the oral exam) and try to take into consideration :
– The real events that inspired the novel and the story that is actually told
– The fact that G. Orwell chose to write a “fairy tale” with “talking animals” instead of a political essay
– The impact of this choice on readers
– What makes it a “modern myth”
Remember that it is always better to compare the documents and to show the links between them as you go along than to just talk about them one after the other.
