It was thought he was born in Megara, which was proven to be incorrect. There is in fact a Euclid of Megara, but he was a philosopher who lived 100 years before Euclid of Alexandria. Also people say that Euclid of Alexandria is the son of Naucrates, but there is no proof of this assumption. Euclid was a very common name at that time, so it was hard

1960s The 1960’s were a time of major political and social change. These changes were primarily fuelled by the youth of the time. Their parents had come from life in both the great depression of the 1930’s as well as World War II, and were on a whole more conservative than their children, a fact the younger generation did not like. In the early 60’s the electronic media (Television and radio) became an important communication tool, as opposed to the largely print based media of previous decades.

20th century theater At the beginning of the twentieth century, American theatre was heavily dominated by commercialism. In 1909, an attempt to establish a European-style art theatre in New York City was made (Geisinger, 241). The building was so cavernous and unsuited for experimental work that the project failed after two seasons. Dedicated to producing the best of European and classical drama and to fostering new American plays, the first production groups of the 1900’s were amateurs (Geising

The story dives deep into such issues as free will, the illusions of “reality”, the morality of ethics, and many others. Burgess fills this horrific tale with satire, numerous puns, and above all: irony. A Clockwork Orange is comparable to George Orwell\'s Nineteen Eighty-Four or Aldous Huxley\'s Brave New World.
