The Gettysburg Address "Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth." From the Richmond Examiner "Kings are usually made to speak in the magniloquent language supposed to be suited to their elevated position. On the present occasion, Lincoln acted the clown."

That Richard thought Lincolns Speech was foolish? @blurbendy
blurbendy
  • blurbendy
yes, basically. More specifically, he thinks Lincoln should have used fancy language because of his position as President of the United States. However, Lincoln used simpler language, according to Richard. So, do you agree or disagree with Richard?

I know I want to put this quote in there; "No statue was ever erected to honor a critic. Statues are for the criticized.” @blurbendy
blurbendy
  • blurbendy
That's a very good quote, but the question wants you to use quotes from the Gettysburg Address. I would disagree also, but I would probably talk about how Lincoln most likely wanted to use simpler language in order for more people to understand his message.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Right but, I wanted to add that quote towards the end of my analyse because it would tie up the ending. I'm just not sure how to write 8 sentences on Lincoln using simpler language so that more could understand his message.

  • blurbendy
Lincoln is a better "king" than Richard has described because wants people to understand him. He doesn't want to talk above them, rather he wants to talk on their level to better relate to them.
blurbendy
  • blurbendy
Just pick out some quotes and discuss how common folk would be more likely to believe in what he's saying
blurbendy
  • blurbendy
because of the language that he's using.

  • blurbendy
So, he's not really a "clown" as Richard has described.

"Kings are usually made to speak in the magniloquent language supposed to be suited to their elevated position." The Richmond Examiner believes Lincoln should have used more of an intricate language because of his occupation as President of the United States. According to the Richmond Examiner, Lincoln used effortless language. It is important to note that this is coming from the view of a critic. ^^ This is what I have so far. What do you think? @blurbendy
blurbendy
  • blurbendy
"...should have used more elevated/lofty/grand language..." (there are more effective words than intricate, you can use any 3 of those). Other than that, what you have is fine. In your opening paragraph, I would also state what your thesis is, or the main point of your essay. In your case you are disagreeing with Richard. You should state this and explain why you disagree. Then in your body paragraphs, you'll support your thesis with your quotes

  • anonymous
Well I'm only suppose to write 2-3 paragraphs @blurbendy
blurbendy
  • blurbendy
an essay cant just have an introduction/conclusion. you have to support your thesis somewhere. so, you can make a huge 1st paragraph with the introduction/support, then a smaller conclusion. Or you can space things out with an intro/body/conclusion. I think it would look more professional with all three, but that's just me. it's the same amount of writing anyway.
anonymous
  • anonymous
But it's an analytical essay, not a disagree or agree type. @blurbendy
blurbendy
  • blurbendy
Right, but you still have to support/refute the claim. I wouldnt use words like "I disagree because..." Be more direct with something like "Richard's claim fails to address... because..." The structure will remain the same, though. Essays are pretty standard across the board.
anonymous
  • anonymous
What did he fail to address though? @blurbendy
blurbendy
  • blurbendy
in my opinion, he fails to consider that Lincoln wanted to use simple language to get his message across to more people/common folks. a "king" doesn't always need to use fancy language when he talks. a true "king" will lead his people and the best way for Lincoln to do that was to be honest and transparent with his message. this is your essay though and youre free to say something else/go in a different direction

"Kings are usually made to speak in the magniloquent language supposed to be suited to their elevated position." The Richmond Examiner believes Lincoln should have used more of a grand language because of his occupation as President of the United States. According to the Richmond Examiner, Lincoln used unsophisticated language. It is significant to note that this is coming from the view of a critic. The Richmond Examiner fails to consider that Lincoln wanted to use simple language to address his speech. A "king" does not always need to use intricate language when he speaks. A dependable "king" will lead his people and the ideal way for Lincoln to do that was to be straightforward and transparent with his speech. Lincoln is a more valuable "king" than the Richmond Examiner has described because, he wants the audience to grasp his words. Rather than talking above them, he wants to talk on equal levels to be better understood. So, he certainly is not a “clown” as labeled. When Lincoln mentions, “we have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live,” he is recognizing those who have died for their country and there is nothing “clownish” about that.

excellent. if you can find one more quote and explain why a common person would relate to it, then you will solidify your argument even more. when you get to your conclusion, just summarize what you said and how your argument shows how the Richmond Examiner failed to realize the purpose of the language behind the speech.

The Richmond Examiner and Lincoln are a perfect example of the quote by Zig Ziglar, “There has never been a statue erected to honor a critic.” The Richmond Examiner creates nothing and thereby feels qualified to criticize the work of the brilliant, honorable Lincoln. The Richmond Examiner failed to become conscious of the purpose of the language behind the speech. @blurbendy

I think your introduction should include these sentences as well. "Kings are usually made to speak in the magniloquent language supposed to be suited to their elevated position." The Richmond Examiner believes Lincoln should have used more of a grand language because of his occupation as President of the United States. According to the Richmond Examiner, Lincoln used unsophisticated language. It is significant to note this is coming from the view of a critic. Also, the Richmond Examiner fails to consider that perhaps Lincoln wanted to use simple language to address his speech. then the next paragraph could begin For example, A "king" does not always need to.... Also, you might want to revise the phrasing in the conclusion .... "The Richmond Examiner creates nothing and thereby feels qualified..." You might want to say something like he contributes little but still feels qualified. You couldnt find another quote to use for the body paragraph?
