What are the rhetorical components of the allegory Animal Farm



Answer: The rhetorical components of this allegory consist of ethos, which deals with beliefs, morals, and credibility. Another rhetorical components deals with logos which can be seen in the story using objects. Last, pathos is a rhetorical component that deals with emotions throughout the story. An example of pathos comes when Old Major is making a speech and says, “You cows that I see before me, how many thousands of gallons of milk have you given during the last year?...Every drop of it has gone down the throats of our enemies. And you hens, how many eggs have you laid in this last year, and how many of those eggs ever hatched into chickens? The rest have all gone to market to bring in money for Jones and his men. Another example of pathos comes in the text when it states, “At the graveside, Snowball made a little speech, emphasizing the need for all animals to be ready to die for Animal Farm if need be. An example of logos comes in the text when it states, “This single farm of ours would support a dozen horses, twenty cows, hundreds of sheep.” Another example comes when Snowball states, “Ribbons,’ he said, ‘should be considered clothes, which are the mark of a human being. All animals should go naked.” Squealer states, “A pile of straw in a stall is a bed, properly regarded. The rule was against sheets, which are human invention.” An example of ethos comes in the text when it states, “I have had a long life, I have had much time for thought as I lay alone in my stall, and I think I may say that I understand the nature of life on this earth as well as any animal now living.”
