Animal Farm – Boxer

In the allegorical reading of the novel, Boxer represents the workers of Russia. They work harder and harder for the success of their nation, but never gain any reward for their efforts.

Boxer believes strongly that Animal Farm should succeed but is not intelligent enough to see that the democracy is being subverted by the pigs. He blindly says that “Napoleon is always right” and that he “will work harder”.

This character gives the message that an uneducated workforce is easily exploited by a government.
