Can the following essay titled

"Shooting an Elephant" by George Orwell (1903-1950) be a litterary cannon of today

  • Literature -

    yes

  • Literature -

    No one story or book can "be a litterary cannon [sic] of today."

    You could say this, though:

    "Shooting an Elephant" by George Orwell (1903-1950) is undoubtedly part of the literary canon of today.

    The bold words are to help you with your spelling of a very specific term.
