  • Boxer is a strong but ignorant horse in George Orwell's Animal Farm. He is described as the farm's most dedicated and loyal laborer. Boxer serves as an allegory for the Russian working-class who helped to oust Czar Nicholas and establish the Soviet Union, but were eventually betrayed by the Stalinists. Boxer is also caring and looks out for the other animals; for example, when they are hungry he makes sure that they get food and helps a duckling during the meeting with Old Major as seen in the cartoon version of the story. Boxer has various mottoes that define his personality, such as: "Napoleon is always right." and "I will work harder." : He has been described as "faithful and strong"; he believes any problem can be solved if he works harder. Boxer is a bit dim-witted and can only remember four letters of the alphabet at a time, but sees the importance of education and aspires to learn the rest of the alphabet during retirement (which never happens). Boxer is a loyal supporter of Napoleon; he listens to everything the self-appointed ruler of the farm says and assumes, sometimes with doubt, that everything Napoleon tells the farm animals is true: "Napoleon is always right." Boxers' strength plays a huge part in keeping the Farm together prior to his death: the rest of the animals trusted in it to keep their spirits high during the long and hard laborious winters. Boxer was the only close friend of Benjamin, the cynical donkey. Boxer fights in the Battle of the Cowshed and the Battle of the Windmill, but is upset when he thinks he has killed a stable boy when, in fact, he had only stunned him. When Boxer defends Snowball's reputation from Squealer's revisionism, the pigs designate him as a target for the Great Purge, but he easily out muscles the dog executioners, sparing them at Napoleon's request. His death shows how far the pigs are willing to go. When he collapses from overwork, the pigs say they have sent him to a veterinarian, when they actually have sent him to the knacker's yard to be slaughtered, in exchange for money to buy a case of whiskey for the pigs. During Old Major's speech, which inspired the principles of Animalism, a specific reference is made to how Boxer would be turned into glue under Farmer Jones' rule, thus implying that it would not happen to him under Animalism. "You, Boxer, the very day that those great muscles of yours lose their power, Jones will send you to the knacker, he will cut your throat and boil you down for the fox-hounds." (en)
  • 鲍克斯是乔治·奥威尔的小说《动物庄园》中虚构的一匹马。他是整座农场中最勤劳、最忠诚的工人。鲍克斯这一形象象征着俄国的工人阶级,因为他们,沙皇遭到驱逐,苏联得以建立,但渐渐地他们被斯大林主义者出卖。 鲍克斯在牛棚大战和风车大战中表现勇敢,但他在误以为自己杀死了一名马倌的时候感到了沮丧,而事实上他只是打昏了马倌。鲍克斯反对斯奎拉(Squealer)的修正主义道路,捍卫斯诺鲍的名誉,猪群因此将他作为大清洗的对象,但他轻易地制服了前来行刑的几只狗,在拿破仑的要求下鲍克斯没有杀死他们。鲍克斯的死彻底揭露出这些猪走得有多远。当鲍克斯因过度劳动而累倒後,这些猪谎称会把他送去疗养院,事实上他们把他送给宰马商宰杀,换得购买一箱威士忌的钱。一匹强壮、忠诚的役马,直到死前,他仍然竭尽全力维护庄园的团结。他也是本杰明——一头愤世嫉俗的驴——唯一的亲密朋友。 老麦泽的演讲催生了动物主义的基本原则。他特别提到在琼斯的统治下,自己最终会被制成马胶,借此暗示在动物主义制度下,他的命运不会如此。 鲍克斯头脑迟钝,他只记得字母表的头四个字母。他代表着工人阶级,他们被愚弄、欺骗,满以为自己将会生活在乌托邦中。 鲍克斯是拿破仑的忠实支持者,他听从拿破仑说的一切,即使偶尔心存怀疑,也最终认定拿破仑对庄园中动物们所说的一切都是真实的。“如果拿破仑这么说,那就一定没有错。” (zh)
