How does Orwell use diction to express the attitude of the animals after their rebellion?

I think that you can find a variety of circumstances to discuss how the animals view life after the revolution.  I believe that Clover might be one of the best sources for quotations.  At the end of Chapter 7 and the start of Chapter 8, Clover is struggling to make sense of life after the revolution and whether or not it is actually making the lives of the animals better would be one area for quote.  Another section that can help to articulate the attitude of the animals after the rebellion would be at the end when the animals can fail to distinguish between the animals and the humans.  Finally, the explanation behind the milk and apple scarcity is a reflection of how the animals slowly realize that there is a hierarchy between the animals.  It is here where one of the commandments of Animal Farm in terms of equality is being violated.  In these sections, I think that you could find situations and quotations whereby Orwell describes how the animals view life after the revolution, helping to bring a stunning distinction clear in that declaring revolutions and living life after it might be seen as two different realities.
