Animal Farm

Animal Farm Chapter 8 Question

Why were Napoleon's infrequent public appearances now accompanied by a trumpeter and why was Napoleon now "never spoken of simply as 'Napoleon'...but as 'our leader, Comrade Napoleon" or by titles invented by the pigs, such as "Father of All Animals"

Napoleon wants to distance himself from mere animals. He wants to remain mysterious and special, an emperor of sorts. By not being seen too much, he takes on a mythic status. Interestingly this sounds very much like society in countries like North Korea.
