This style f writing makes sense for him to use, since Ellis has written a number of other biographical books about these two men and their counterparts, such as American Sphinx: The Character of Thomas Jefferson and Passionate Sage: The Character and Legacy of John Adams, both critically acclaimed and regarded as two of the best books on our second and third presidents. Ellis’ juxtaposition of these seemingly
Ciara Saenz History 1301-499 File #4 Ronald Wright October 30, 2014 Gordon S. Wood, “Hope and Heritage: Myth and Thomas Jefferson,” and “Thomas Jefferson: First Inaugural Address, 1801” Gordon S. Wood wrote that Thomas Jefferson was a very important figure in the development of what we know today to be the United States of America. Throughout countless books, stories, and articles that depict Thomas Jefferson he is placed on a pedestal as a nearly perfect man. But, he was also hypocritical in the things he proposed. Gordon Wood takes a deep dive into Jefferson’s personal life, plainly showing who he truly was. On March 4, 1801, Thomas Jefferson gave his inaugural address to become the third president of the United States.
His Excellency George Washington Taina Ferrer Dual Credit 11th Grade U.S. History George Washington was known for being an international icon of freedom and liberty, but how much do people really know about him? Joseph John Ellis succeeded in telling us this by focusing on the man behind the monument instead of just writing another George Washington encyclopedia. Joseph John Ellis was the author of His Excellency George Washington. Ellis was an American historian and professor at Mount Holyoke College who focused on the lives of the Founding Fathers of America. He won a Pulitzer Prize for his book Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation and he also won a National Book Award for his book American Sphinx: The Character of Thomas Jefferson, which were both bestsellers.
Black Elk Speaks isn’t alone in that the book Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee by Dee Brown, includes some of the same techniques. Brown also ensures that the information and people are accurate and reflect the story. Although the similarities between Black Elk Speaks and Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee are plentiful in numerous effective ways of telling a story, Black Elk Speaks uses perspective, language and resources that correspond to the theme and message of the book and reflect it in the more refined way of the two. The perspective of the narrator often affects the quality of which the story is portrayed, and can actually determine whether or not the reader understands what the message is. In Black Elk Speaks, because the narrator is a Native American boy who is at the time going through all the commotion first hand, he gives a different outlook on the situation than say.
He describes his writing of history as one that attempts to represent their ‘submerged, deflected, common’ interest. As he says, “History which keeps alive the memory of people’s resistance suggests new definitions of power,” (Zinn 635). I was a bit confused in reading this chapter. It would seem that Zinn felt the need to define his mission as a historian before the final chapters wrapped the book up. Nonetheless, I think he accomplished his goal of liberating the “people’s opinion” through this book.
The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien expresses the importance of a story-truth, as opposed to a happening-truth by use of literary elements in his writing. The novel is about war and the guilt it leaves on everyone involved in the war. The four literary devices he uses to express this are diction, imagery, juxtaposition, and hyperbole. All of these elements allow the reader to identify emotion that is expressed in each story, as though that were the complete truth. O'Brien's diction is descriptive.
Although his introduction is extensive and makes it difficult to pinpoint his thesis, Gordon’s argument proves it quite well by showing that this historical figure was reinterpreted as a symbol to fit the political needs of the country and specific groups in specific ways. At times, Gordon gets so bogged down in detail that the reader might be tempted to think that he has lost sight of his objective, getting lost in the “trees” so badly that he no longer can conceptualize the “forest,” but he always manages to emerge from these detailed discussions of Canadian history to clarify the issues that pertain to his thesis. The manner in which the article is written appears to uplift Cartier and hold him as a heroic icon for generations to witness, whereas the book illustrates Cartier’s historical significance to specific events by providing factual details in a neutral position. As this suggests, Gordon is a little dry in places and a trifle confusing, but ultimately he proves his points and offers valuable insight on the role of historical heroes within the framework of an era’s contemporary
Research Paper 11/30/12 Black Ops Tom Clancy is one of today’s most popular, well known authors. He is the best modern fiction writer, and probably, one of the all-time best. He seems to be obsessed with naval history and his dream was to create a best seller novel. Above was an excerpt from his second number one bestseller, Red Storm Rising, a hard hitting novel about a frighteningly real World War III with the Warsaw Pact nations. Tom Clancy is a civilian genius that knows more about top-secret weapons systems than the men who designed them.
