Theodor Seuss Geisel aka Dr. Seuss was born on March 2, 1940, in Springfield, Massachusetts. His parents were Theodor Robert Geisel, a successful brew master, and Henrietta Seuss Geisel. He had two sisters, Marnie, two years older, and Henrietta 3 ½ years younger. Henrietta died at the age of five due to pneumonia. Dr. Seuss attended Dartmouth College, where he became the editor in chief of its humor magazine, Jack-O-Lantern.
When the anticipated senior year finally begins, a typical student at Laurel High School enjoys a brief honeymoon of peer dominance and the illusion that the finish line is in sight. Then, reality sets in. College and scholarship applications burden an already hefty load of work so that by December, much like poor little Max the dog in Dr. Seuss’s The Grinch, seniors feel they are dragging forty times their weight up a steep, snowy mountain. I saw an opportunity several years ago to take advantage of their misery by assigning a document I knew most would need to write anyway, the dreaded personal essay. It makes perfect sense: it fits the Common Core standards, and they need the help.
Also, in the book he helped people realize the significance of nature. From what society thought about nature, to nature being uncharted because people were afraid of it, and then how nature changed Equality 7-2521 as a character throughout the book. It showed how people can changed for better or for worse through different circumstances. I say this, because in society he was not that strong of a character and desired to be able to write or have his own thoughts without breaking rules. He changed and thrived as a character for the better when he went into nature and could think and say what he wanted and experiencing new
In Dr. Seuss’s, The Butter Battle Book he uses seemingly harmless items to make connections to the cold war, a potentially deadly war. He does this by using symbolism and themes to bring attention to the matter. Seuss wrote the book to show how bad an arms race and specifically nuclear weapons are for the world. .He also uses more specific examples to add meaning to his story. Some of these include the “Big Boy Boomeroo” that symbolizes the atomic bombs, Grandpa and Van Itch representing the armies of the two countries in the cold war, and the fight of two different ideologies, the allies a more democratic ideology and the Soviets a communist regime.
The book was better at delivering his message because it had shown people’s willingness to give up, their pain, how they felt, and what position they were put in. It included all of those things, which in the speech, it either didn’t include it, or included a very small fraction of what he said through his speech. So why should you care? Why does this have to do with you? You should care about this topic, because sometimes, history can repeat itself.

At first I wanted to argue with his ‘one story’ ideology, Ayn Rand’s Fountainhead got inside my head I suppose. However as he continued to engage with it, providing examples of how past works foster and provide a way to increase the depth of a story, I started to appreciate it more. It wasn’t that he was saying good literature only comes from traces of older works, and then adding their own traces to be applied similarly to new works.
This show how much he really cares about how he feels and that people need books that he was able to read one to people that did not even believe the ways he had. He ran from authorities and met up with this camp where this each had to care for and protect a book of their choice. It all shows that they are not ignorant they willing to put themselves in troubles just to help some of his wife 's
In the 1950’s, Theodor Seuss Geisel released multiple new books including “The Cat in the Hat” and “Horton Hears a Who!” which are both well known stories still enjoyed today. In 1975, Dr. Seuss released “Oh the Things You Can Think!” which is another inspirational story about the intelligence and potential of each person. Many of Dr. Seuss’ books speak more to adults than children which makes them even more influential to American society by reminding adults they still have room to learn and
In the book The Butter Battle Book, by Dr. Seuss, between two different communities of people with different beliefs lays a wall. On one side of the wall live the Yooks who eat their bread butter side up. On the other side of the wall live the Zooks who eat their bread butter side down. The book is a satire of the Cold War, which took place from 1947-1991.This book is better than other satires because it gives the reader a clear story about what the satire is really about and uses many devices to help with the satirization. Throughout the story, Dr. Seuss uses conflict, parody, and reversal to demonstrate the reality of the Cold War.
The author Gladwell helped the reader to reach his message by providing characters with common experiences and turn them into positive experiences. He used characters to help the reader to find hidden messages. Gladwell was trying to make hidden messages easy to locate as a person reads deeper in the chapters within the book, he made this clear since the beginning of his book. The importance of the book is demonstrates how a legacy that includes culture can have failure and can be turned around into success just by an off chance (Locklear, 2016). Gladwell gives the reader a sense of empowerment showing the public to feel self-righteous because they too can become a famous song writer or athlete if they to put in their 10,000 hours of dedicated work to what they love to do (Locklear,
Going back to the anecdotes he used, they serve a very strong purpose in appealing to the audience. Every anecdote he list all depict something unfair happening to him or another person, for example he goes into a jewelry shop and the proprietor brought a dog to intimidate him which creates a sense of outrage and motivation in the audience. In a sense, because he appealed to their anger, he can convince them that his theme is valid and call them to action more effectively. His appeal to emotion occurs through his anecdotes too; furthermore, he said that he had to bury his relatives and friends creating sympathy and pity. This small part was off the topic of his central theme, but it nonetheless lightens the audience to take him easier, indirectly strengthening his message.
In the story it 's a war between the Zooks and the Yooks. The person speaking in the book is a Yook boy talking about when his grandpa took him to the wall between the two sides (Seuss pg 5). But in the story he is speaking to Audrey and also the reader. The reason for there being a war is because the Yooks eat their bread with the butter side up, in contrast the Zooks eat their bread butter side down. Also there is a lot of rhyming in the book.
