    Kindle Jill Lepore Ø The Story of America MOBI · The Story MOBI :è Ø story ebok, america book, The Story download, The Story of America Epub The Story of America consists of 20 essays Jill Lepore wrote for The New Yorker If you like history you'll find it interesting if surface skimming material That is Lepore is not diving in deep here she's making her point in 15 pages or so and moving on Me I bought it strictly in hopes of using some essays for school but Lepore's writing as a rule is a bit above

    Kindle Jill Lepore Ø The Story of America MOBI · The Story MOBI :è Ø story ebok, america book, The Story download, The Story of America EpubLepore brings a lot into her essays She is a professor of history and a staff writer on the New Yorker where I believe all the essays here were originally published She writes on a variety of subjects including literature and history And whatever she writes about she leaves the impression of having some authority When she writes a book review it almost sounds like she knows the material better than the author The essays her

    Kindle Jill Lepore Ø The Story of America MOBI · The Story MOBI :è Ø story ebok, america book, The Story download, The Story of America EpubA collection of short essays by one of our best 'storytelling' historians this work is a joy to read All but one essay appeared in The New Yorker; the exception the Longfellow appeared in The American Scholar Although the author is a Harvard history professor these essays are not 'academic history' Although they embody solid scholarship and fresh insights they are best

    Kindle Jill Lepore Ø The Story of America MOBI · The Story MOBI :è Ø story ebok, america book, The Story download, The Story of America EpubAn excellent collection of narrative essays about American history that add up to a history of the way Americans have thought about their history over the years Over a broad range of topics excellent essays on the history of presidential biographies on the history of murder biographical sketches of Washington Franklin and Poe among others she tells very good stories based on documentable records with great wit and prose Like a story suite in fiction say City of Saints and Madmen by Jeff Vandermeer or A Visit From the

    Kindle Jill Lepore Ø The Story of America MOBI · The Story MOBI :è Ø story ebok, america book, The Story download, The Story of America EpubIf there is a better writer and thinker on American history than Jill Lepore? This book sees Lepore taking on the history of American history and although that sounds worryingly like it might be an academic exercise the short chapters on subjects like Benjamin Franklin presidential inaugural addresses labour rights and the Puritans teem with funny and off the wall details

    Kindle Jill Lepore Ø The Story of America MOBI · The Story MOBI :è Ø story ebok, america book, The Story download, The Story of America EpubIf my college experience in history classes had included books like Prof Lepore's and fewer standard texts that illuminated characters mighty little but dished out history in broad strokes I might well have majored in history rather than literatureThe stories about the making of the constitution inaugural speeches fascinating people like Darrow and Poe are both delightful to read and enlightening about how we as a people got where we areMs Lepore is a treasure

    Kindle Jill Lepore Ø The Story of America MOBI · The Story MOBI :è Ø story ebok, america book, The Story download, The Story of America EpubDon't tell my wife I am in love with Jill Lepore I have been since I read her debut book The Name of War during my senior year of college back in 2003 Since then I have feasted upon her New Yorker essays whenever I stumbled on them This book which assembles many of those essays is a beautiful thing to behold a brilliant mind at play—and a historian who can write with grace She collapses space and time to explain how we Americans came to be who we are or try to be or fail to beEssay after essay I found myself astonished by her research and storytelling powers The essay on Benjamin Franklin which peels back the layers of lazy stereotype surrounding his name to reveal a fuller and endlessly interesting man is a highlight as is the Dickens in America essay There are just 2 or 3 3 pieces I wasn't dazzled by Simply put she can connect Amer

    Kindle Jill Lepore Ø The Story of America MOBI · The Story MOBI :è Ø story ebok, america book, The Story download, The Story of America EpubI've loved any New Yorker essay that I've read by Lepore so I suppose I picked up this book with a bit of a bias However these essays actually surpassed my expectations They are so fun to read because each essay looks deeply at a small little part of American history one of my favorites was about how the physical act of casting a vote changed throughout history In addition to her ability to find interesting stories to tell Lepore is also an amazing writer I loved her wit her touch of snark and her tell it to ya straight style I also really liked how she didn't let any of the founding fathers off easily for their racism and sexism Highly recommended
