Is Animal Farm by George Orwell a silent protest against the Russian Revolution? I am correcting an essay about Animal Farm, and someone called it a silent protest. I am not sure whether I should correct it. Just a brief overview of Animal Farm for those of you who have read it years ago and for those who never read it:

The book is a parallel to the Russian Revolution. Basically everything that happens is based on the USSR. Orwell wrote the book as a satire and mocking of the Russian Revolution. It was his way to protest what was going on.

    What do you mean by "silent protest"? – Double U Jan 24 at 2:37

    So you're saying it's definitely protest but asking whether it's "silent protest"? This begs the question of what do you mean by silent. (A bestselling novel doesn't seem very "silent" to me ...) – Rand al'Thor Jan 24 at 6:43

  • @Randal'Thor, you'd say no then. – M. C. Jan 24 at 15:28
  • @MattThrower, it's not a duplicate. I am asking whether the phrase silent protests would be correct/logical. – M. C. Jan 24 at 15:28
