Animal Farm: Pathos

The Greek word pathos means “suffering,” “experience,” or “emotion.” It was borrowed into English in the 16th century, and for English speakers, the term usually refers to the emotions produced by tragedy or a depiction of tragedy.

Questions for discussion:

  • What images or depictions or slogans are constantly used to play upon the animal’s emotions?  
  • What do these things accomplish, and who benefits?
  • Read the excerpt.  The Animals are afraid to sing “Beasts of England” out loud.  Are there things you’re afraid to say out loud or online today? Discuss.

Excerpt:

Animal Farm Reading: Chapter 10 pgs 127 – 132.

Q and A due Tomorrow (50 points):

Many animals had been born to whom the Rebellion was only a dim tradition, passed on by word of mouth, and others had been bought who had never heard mention of such a thing before their arrival.”
