    966 words - 4 pages

    “All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others.” (Orwell 123). These words, from Orwell’s novel, “Animal Farm” are not only engraved on the wall of a barn for all to see, but also become permanently inscribed (almost without them realizing it) in the minds of the barn’s occupants. This problem of equality flows throughout the whole story; gradually, but surely. The farm, after expelling its previous human master, becomes a place of harmony amongst the animals. A place where the inhabitants can be at peace. They can work for their own food, their own

Everyone has their own decisions and assumptions as to picking the types of clothing to choose. There are also several reasons why they prefer the clothes they choose, whether it be due to special occasions, the amount of their earned income, or the changing of seasons.

    History Of Fashion

    The period between 1901-1910 is often called the Edwardian Era after Queen Victoria's successor, King Edward VII. Sophisticates and the French also refer to this time as La Belle Epoque, or "Beautiful Age," as there was a definite leaning toward classical aesthetics. It was an era of beautiful clothes and the peak of luxury living for a select few: the very rich and the very privileged through birth. In retrospect we can see it is an era very separate from the 20th century despite belonging at its start. The attitudes and lifestyles of two decades were swept away by war and because the war wa

    Does Clothing Make A Man Or Woman

    In recent times, people have come to recognize a person’s clothing as a way of displaying how he or she carries him or her self. But, one must wonder, is it the clothing that actually makes a man or woman whom he or she is perceived to be? Throughout history, the meaning and purpose of clothing has changed. The status of clothing has evolved from merely being a way of protecting the human body from dangers of the environment to a way of style, self expression and signifying one’s social status.

Unfortunately, that is complicated by the fact that most terms can be used in two different ways: grammatical and logical.

A word’s connotation refers to the emotional implications and associations that a word may carry.

    The Chimney Sweeper By William Blake

This is something that a child is more likely to understand, and being part of the ‘Songs of Innocence’, this seems a realistic central theme.
