“Reading’s in United States History”, I chose to focus on a piece of work which caught my eye from one Sheila L. Skemp, called “Patriot Father, Loyalist Son”. This caught my attention the most out of all the essays’ I read from Part II: Era of Revolution. In this essay I will examine the relationship of Benjamin and William Franklin, and how this founding father and his loyalist son had extremely different views on the American Revolution in an otherwise abnormal relationship. I will be summarizing this essay, critiquing the authors’ point of view, style of writing and finish by including my thoughts and opinions on this essay. Like most of the essays in this book, it starts off with a very well written and detailed prologue to bring the reader up to speed about what is going on in history around the subject, in this case the years leading up to the American Revolution.

This essay will also comment on, and analyse the way in which Mr Wopsle’s portrayal of Shakespeare’s Hamlet grows out of his earlier appearances and behaviour. In Great Expectations’ Vol.
