This song is important first of all because it serves as the national anthemn of the animal's new domain. It incites them to rebellion, not just for Animal Farm but to countries beyond ("Beasts of England, Beast of Ireland, Beasts of every land and clime...") The song unites them in purpose and gives them a vision of an animal utopia which is possible to attain if they perservere.

"Beasts of England" serves as the spark which ignites the match for the animal's revolt against Farmer Jones and, in a larger sense, is the ideological support for their revolution against man.

It's the future that the animals in the Manor Farm have wanted. To become free, to be able to garde their own produce for them self and to live without a plough on their showder. They are going to be rich and have all the oats, the hays and wheat reserved for themselve. The song has also shown their eager for the freedom and liberty. Everytime after the secret meeting they sing the song together has also shown that they are a group who works together for their own well.
