Boxer by Mind Map: Boxer

1. Battle of Cowshed

1.1. During the Battle of Cowshed, Boxer kicked a stable boy with his hoof and knocked him unconscious. Boxer felt guilty about this even though the other animals saw it as a good thing since they thought the human was dead. "'He is dead,' said Boxer sorrowfully. 'I had no intention of doing that. I forgot that I was wearing iron shoes."

2. Limited Intelligent

2.1. Although Boxer was not the smartest animal, he was still more intelligent then some of the others. An example of this is that he could do the ABCs up until the letter D. However, Boxer's limited intelligence caused problems for him later in the book. For instance he couldn't read the commandments so whenever something on them changed, he wouldn't be able to tell.

3. Mottos

3.1. "I will work harder" and "Napoleon is always right"

4. How The Other Animals Feel About Him

4.1. All of the other animals in Animal Farm looked up to Boxer since he was so strong, hard-working, and could do more work than the others on the farm. “His answer to every problem, every setback was 'I will work harder!' —which he had adopted as his personal motto.”

5. Characteristics

5.1. Physical

5.1.1. 18 hands high (about 6 feet), huge, white stripe down his nose, and young

5.2. Personality

5.2.1. Strong, Caring, Hard-Working, Not That Smart, Innocent, and Naive

6. How The Pigs Treat Him

6.1. Many of the pigs looked up to Boxer since he was strong but they still believed tat they were better than him since the pigs are pigs.

7. His Misplaced Devotion

7.1. Boxer is fully devoted to Napoleon and even created the motto of, "Napoleon is always right." His devotion is misplaced however since Napoleon is not the great leader that Squealer tells Boxer about. For example in chapter ten when Boxer gets hurt, Napoleon decides tat he would be no more help to him and sends him off to be made into glue.

7.1.1. "The time had been when a few kicks from Boxer's hoofs would have smashed the van to matchwood. But alas! His strength had left him; and in a few moments the sound of drumming hoofs grew fainter and died away."
