The Seven Commandments

Decent Essays
The quote I chose was from chapter 10, page 118. “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.” This quote illustrates the work's meaning because it shows that the pigs are now no different that the humans. They are both greedy for power and would rather let others suffer than share. In the beginning of the book the animal made the seven commandments and their only enemy was the humans. They said all animals were good and all humans were bad. They said they wouldn’t use any human items like clothes or beds. Throughout the book the pigs slowly started doing more and more human things. They said they needed things like apples to function.
