Never Forget Boxer

boxer

This found poem was created by using the book “Animal Farm” by George Orwell and Adobe Photoshop. I took words and phrases from the book to create the poem. This poem is about the characterization of one of the characters named, Boxer.

 

Boxer is not the main character in the book. He is a horse along with Clover in “Animal Farm”. However, he played a huge part in making the Windmill and the Battle of the Cowshed. Without Boxer, the Windmill wouldn’t have been complete and the farm wouldn’t be as successful in the beginning. In the story, Boxer is being described as a strong and muscular horse. He would arrange one of the cockerels to wake him up half an hour earlier than the other animals. He would also volunteer labour before the normal work began. Boxer was very determined, hard worker, and very loyal. Not only did Boxer help build the Windmill and volunteer labour, he was a brave fighter in the Battle of the Cowshed. Boxer isn’t very smart, but instead of thinking about himself, he worries about the farm. Because of Boxer’s attitude and his work, many of the animals admire him. His personal motto is: “I will work harder!” As you can see, the poem above talks about his physical appearance and his motto. You can see his characterization and his personality through this poem.

JUNE

In the novel Legend by Marie Lu, the exposition shows the reader a great deal about Day. The way he talks to his enemies and allies is completely different. “I smile. When I first met Tess three years ago, she was a skinny ten-year-old orphan Rummaging through trash bins in the Nima sector. She’d needed my help so much in those early years that I sometimes forget just how much I rely on her now.” (Lu 9) Comparing the relationship with Tess and June, he treats Tess like his sister but June is hunting him down to avenge Metias’s death. “ I will hunt you down. I will scour the streets of Los Angeles for you.” (45) The phone text messages represent, how Day communicates with the other characters in the book, he shows his kindness and caress for Tess and his brother, John, and hatred for June.
