How does Orwell set the tone in Chapter 9? How does the tone support the theme of the novella?

Chapter nine is really the falling action of the story, It involves the inevitable calamity of Napoleon's totalitarian rule. Boxer, the most productive being on the farm, is not sent to comfortable retirement rather he is sent to a clue factory. The tone is dark and full of tragedy as whatever was left of Old Major's original goals are all but vanished.
