Book comparison

Although "Macbeth" and "Animal Farm" were written at separate times and by different authors, you can't help but notice the similarities and traits of the characters. Unlike Macbeth, which concentrates on the pain of the main character, Animal Farm focuses on the pain of the animals. On the other hand, both stories convey a message of self-gratification. Both "Macbeth" and "Animal Farm" featured power-hungry characters that are desperate to gain domination, as well as character competition. Manipulation is used to deceive others into devotion or to commit crimes.

Theme
Macbeth was hungry for power and would do anything to obtain it
Napoleon was hungry for power and wanted to become supreme ruler
When the windmill fell Napoleon stated that “Snowball '' was the one “who has come in the night and overthrown our windmill” covering up his own miscalculations (Orwell 28).
“Were you drunk when you seemed so hopeful
before? Have you gone to sleep and woken up
green and pale in fear of this idea? From now on
this is what I’ll think of your love. Are you afraid to
act the way you desire? Will you take the crown
you want so badly, or will you live as a coward,
always saying “I can’t” after you say “I want to”?
You’re like the poor cat in the old story.”
"Comrades," he said, "I trust that every animal here appreciates the sacrifice that Comrade Napoleon has made in taking this extra labour upon himself. Do not imagine, comrades, that leadership is a pleasure! On the contrary, it is a deep and heavy responsibility. No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be? Suppose you had decided to follow Snowball, with his moonshine of windmills– Snowball, who, as we now know, was no better than a criminal?"
"I can’t spur myself to action. The only thing
motivating me is ambition, which makes people
rush ahead of themselves toward disaster."
“No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions,"
