How is Orwell's Animal Farm an allegory?

Answer: Orwell’s Animal Farm is an allegory because there are two political overtones within this story. On the surface you have a story that depicts a tale of a society of animals that shape into a dictatorial rule. The second overtone deals with animals that stand for a representation of Orwell’s way of constructing how he felt about the totalitarianism in Soviet Russia.
