Verb tenses in a text
Message de loupevivante posté le 17-03-2009 à 00:35:10 (S | E | F)

Are my verb tenses correct in this text? Thank you...

The book George Orwell decided to call 'Animal Farm' contains a few hidden messages. Readers are free to pick what they want/are able to find. In my view, this book digs deeper than describing a farm with some animals which want to 'do better' in life. The farm is actually run by these animals; they don’t only live on it but they also own it. This reality changes the meaning of these word combinations completely. The fact that he placed the word animal in front of farm puts that last word in obscurity and lessens its impact/effect. By choosing animals to play the role of humans, the author showed that he didn't have any respect for Russian Revolution pioneers, who in Orwell's time triggered a lot of upheavals in the world. He picked that title probably because he wanted to show what he thought about the Russian Revolution.
However, this title is not the initial one given by George Orwell. He called his book Animal Farm: A Fairy Story. Indeed, in every translation, except in Telegu's one, the subtitle was dropped or became A Satire, A Contemporary Satire or was described as an adventure or tale. The original subtitle had its own justification. It stems from Orwell's abiding fascination for fairy stories and the like encountered during his early childhood and in his work as a teacher.
In brief, Animal Farm is the name of this establishment from the Rebellion. These animals want to improve their way of life. By choosing such a name reflecting clearly their wish, they think that it will be easier. Mr. Orwell gave this title to his book to represent this illustrated reality thanks to the animals' behaviour.

Good evening!
We're going to specialize in G. Orwell's masterpiece with you, it seems... a few coorctions..

The farm is actually run by these animals; they don’t only(maybe you know another structure which starts with "Not ...") live on it but they also own it.

It seems there's not much more to correct. It's well articulated and you've chosen the right words and structures..
Bye!
