hat precisely makes a story classic ? The vast majority depict a story to be exemplary when it has stood the test of time. In my perspective , I believe a story is a classic when it practice a particular influence on people, or when it serve as a standard for writing and it is to be looked upon as of the highest class over time. In this paper, I would focus on what part of Orwell's exposition Shooting an Elephant makes it a work of art.
