“We had gone to New York and lined up Howard Da Silva, who was a big Broadway booming voice actor, to play Eugene Debs’ voice,” Barnett explains. “But that didn’t quite work out, so Bernie ended up doing the narration of Debs’ voice.” Bernie Sanders is from Brooklyn; Debs was not. The movie also suffered from the filmmaker’s reverence for his subject. Sanders, one reviewer opined, seemed “determined to administer Debs to the viewer as if it were an unpleasant, but necessary, medicine.”
Based on my experience, I've always felt that the hardest part about writing an essay, whether it be autobiographical or not, is gathering all your sources. In my opinion, that takes the longest time. Not only do you have to make an outline about how you plan to use your sources, but even more so, you have to make sure they're all accurate. While some websites are beneficial, others (such as Wikipedia) can be edited by anyone, often leading to some false information.
Post 2 When I was in seventh grade, I remember writing a biographical essay on Martin Luther King. Being the first autobiography I've written, it wasn't an easy task. Not only was there a lot of research involved, but the teacher had some very strict guidelines as well. However, since I already knew much about Martin Luther King, I was able to gather my sources rather easily. I imagine it would have been much more difficult if I picked someone I didn't know beforehand. Chmander
Post 1 When writing an essay, whether it's informative or biographical, it's always helpful to remember who your audience is. Remember, what may work for one essay may not work for others. For example, let's say that you're trying inform someone about a topic that most are unaware of. It would help to make a list of very important facts. However, if it's a biographical essay, you're telling the story of another person's life (though you can't cover all the facts). Post your comments Post Anonymously Please enter the code:
