sam was home one night when the lights went out during a thunderstorm. he was looking in the kitchen closet for a flashlight to him see, but it was hard to find the flashlight in the dark without using a flashlight! his circumstances struck sam as pretty funny.
this story contains what kind of irony?
animal farm, written by george orwell, is a representation of russia after the revolution that led stalin to take over power.
in this excerpt, the central idea seems to be that the animals (a representation of society), when they believe to be working for a greater good and equality, are obedient and productive. they were convinced that, after expelling the owner (jones) from the farm, they would live in harmony and be fairly treated.
as we know, the pigs become the leaders and grow more selfish and dictatorial with time. in the end, they look and act in a way so similar to humans that it is impossible to tell the difference. the ideals of equality are shattered, and the farm turns out to be worse than it was before. the animals are manipulated with false propaganda and forced to work in order to enrich the pigs.
i would say c, admiration because the narrator related to the main character and she, too, once felt ashamed about her culture and wished to be an american girl to impress a boy. she felt admiration because her mom prepared her favorite foods when her and robert's (the guy she liked) family all came together and had a family reunion.
