Whereas, your home is your home and the full time job of a stay at home mum, a homemaker exerts to convert any random house into a home with lasting and loving memories. Here, the maker is the definiendum and the home is defines and the ‘maker’ quality is the differentia that distinguish this term from similar terms.

    Realism in Chopin and Freeman Women in the 19th century, married or unmarried, were expected to stay at home all day taking care of the house and cleaning up after others.

    William Carlos Williams is an imagist poet, who superiorly controls the meaning of his poems, using subtle language manipulations. One poem that shows this in particular is The Young Housewife.
