Capote made use of many literary techniques in order to grab the interest of his readers. He wanted his novel to be more than just a newspaper description of the crime. Finally, In Cold Blood was a great success because it told a true story in an interesting way. Capote overcame a big milestone by discovering a way to write a nonfiction novel, which appealed to everyone. First, Capote knew that he was creating a new art form when he wrote his greatest work, In Cold Blood.
Those actions alone helped sustained the nation through some of it’s darker times such as the Great Depression and World War II. Other than having such great communication skills and friendliness towards all his people, he had an amazing inner reserve and impenetrable iron will. His admirers emphasized the way in which he met the nation's problems and would praise the way he would often insist that the federal government needed to help with the underprivileged as well as the United States must share in the responsibility for preserving world peace. Franklin Roosevelt made many a great impact upon his times and his policies proved to exert great influence on the future. Being able to provide people with faith throughout the great depression and hard times that would follow during his presidency, and uplift the country was just one of the traits that proved him to be a great leader.
This demonstrates the world will see the killer for nothing more than he is...a killer. The assassination ended any political movements led and promoted by the President because he was no longer in office. For example Kennedy was trying to make relations with Cuba, but after the next president stepped in that was no longer a priority. Kennedy was a remarkable young president who did what he thought was best for the country, but some thought he was the enemy and even wanted him dead. He never lost an election and became Congressmen, Senator, and finally president.
He ruthlessly crushed his competitor s in the process, alienating the public and leaving a stain on the family name. He set the standard for philanthropy, but his reputation was so sullied that he never received the credit that he was due for this great act on behalf of humankind. "We came to realize that the real problem was the integration of power and goodness," says Steven Rockefeller, John D. Rockefeller Junior’s grandson. "And that if the family was going to continue to work together, philanthropic commitments and values would be at the center" (Harr 67). In a society that has more millionaires, even billionaires than ever, the story of the Rockefellers is both a cautionary tale and an exemplary one.
An example of these humanistic stories is the story of Friedman’s apartment and his friend Mohammed’s family. The story of the Mohammed’s family and the ugly death they... ... middle of paper ... ... is an ally to the United States and Americans should feel that they can do no wrong because the United States would never be a ally with a uncivil country. Friedman’s reports are very interesting and that made for an easy read. He uses biography and personal stories to give us a better understanding of the crisis in the Middle East. This novel gave me more insight that any news show could ever give me.
president, whether thought to have they succeeded or failed, was elected for a reason and impressed the American people enough to be chosen for the job and needs continually put their best traits forward. Mr. Abraham Lincoln, or “Honest Abe”, earned this nickname before his first inauguration. It could have been from when he was a trusted store clerk or during his law career when many had seen his lack of tolerance for lying in the courtroom. There are many reasons you should be truthful, if for nothing more than it will come to light someday whether you want to admit or not I think we can all learn a thing or two from President Clinton’s reluctance to admit to a certain mistake. Looking back, I think that Franklin D. Roosevelt may have been one of the most dedicated politicians of all time even with a disease that crippled him.
Ellis, were his interesting choice in writing and the usage of quotes. Ellis’ uses, the figurative language, flashbacks all throughout the story. One of my favorite most helpful flashback used was during the explanation of “The Duel.” In order to describe what happened, Ellis needed to explain the end of “The Duel” to allow the readers understand what happened. Ellis writes, “For our story to proceed along the indisputable lines established at the start, we must skip over the most dramatic moment, then return to it later.” Due to Ellis’ style he allowed the readers to understand the story of Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. Another style used that I loved was how many quotes that Ellis used.
Hearst loved war and drama, it gave him something to publish. William Randolph Hearst would take yellow journalism to a new level with his great experience in writing and blow the littlest news facts into big time stories that would pull his readers in to believing just about everything that was published in his newspaper. Hearst’s biggest challenger was Joseph Pulitzer, a fellow writer. The irony was that both Pulitzer and Hearst were considered outsiders when they arrived at New York City. Their papers both appealed to the same situations and what not.
Franklin D. Roosevelt was a man who besides his intelligence, charm and strong confidence, he was able to sustain the nation through the most overbearing crisis know as the Great Depression as well as World War II. While managing to stay optimistic, Franklin Roosevelt helped people regain faith in themselves. Despite all the chaos going on at the time, “he was met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory (pg. 90).” He was praised for pushing the government to help those who were underprivileged. This was a new beginning in time for Americans known as the New Deal.
The Battle of New Orleans: Andrew Jackson and America’s First Military Victory was a book with lots of tedious details and exciting battles. I would have to say I enjoyed Robert Remini’s book for the most part. But the lengthy details made it very easy for me to lose interest. The reason why I enjoyed it was because you could feel his desire to prove his point and the passion for The Battle of New Orleans in his writing. I found reading about Andrew Jackson’s heroic feats fascinating and would overall recommend the book on to any history, battle loving reader.
