Hillary’s husband re-elected: The Clinton marriage of politics and power Objective: to analyse an article
My favourite tumblr! http://textsfromhillaryclinton.tumblr.com / What do you know about Hillary Clinton? What kind of an impression of this woman from the tumblr page above?
Now read the text on page 128 Focusing on the text’s first three paragraphs (to ‘She forgives, we forgive ’), jot down some bullet points about the way the text constructs a particular image of Hillary Clinton and persuades the reader to agree. You should consider: Persuasive devices including antithesis and repeated structures The connotations of particular lexical choices The use of nouns and adjectives to describe Clinton directly The way Jong addresses the reader The way Jong characterises America in the text
‘Our culture treats intelligent women with suspicion’ What do you think of this point of view?
