Napoleon and the Use of Propaganda Danielle Curatolo
4/17/10
Pd. 1 A.)

This painting is an example of glittering generalities propaganda. The painting makes it seem as though Napoleon is a strong, confident leader that will lead the French to victory. This painting is completely false because Napoleon is not slim and tall as he is portrayed in the picture. B.)
"England is a nation of shopkeepers."
-Napoleon Bonaparte This quote is an example of simplification or stereotyping. Napoleon trys to shoot down an opposing country by making them all seem like lower class citizens. This is stereotypical in the way that it applies one simple description to an entire nation of people to make his country in better. C.) Baby, baby, naughty baby,
Hush, you squalling thing, I say;
Hush your squalling, or it may be
Bonaparte may pass this way.

Baby, baby, he will hear you
As he passes by the house,
And he, limb from limb, will tear you,
Just as pussy tears a mouse.
-English lullaby This old English lullaby is an example of Pinpointing the Enemy. With the poem the English are instilling a fear in their children of Napoleon therefore they are making him appear to be the greatest enemy, it is his fault for all problems. D.) 'Did not our Harry the Fifth invade France, and at Agincourt oppose an Army of 9000 men, sickly, fatigued, and half starved, to that of the French, accounting 50,000; and did he not leave 10,000 of the enemy dead upon the field, and take 14,000 prisoners, with the loss of only 400 men? BRITONS STRIKE HOME! Or your Fame is for ever blasted - your liberties for ever lost!!!' This quote from an old English leaflet is an example of Transfer and Bandwagon propaganda. The quote is going making Napoleon seem not so invincible by giving the English people the conotation of the previous victories they have had in France so they believe it will be easy to defeat the French again. This is an example of bandwagon because the leaflet is making it seems as though the English will be left out and shamed if they do not go into war. E.) This painting that is supposedly of Napoleon in battle is an example of Plain Folk propaganda. The painting was designed by Napoleon to give the people the impression that he is out there with them fighting for their rights, their ideals, and there freedom. He is just one of the soldiers. A.)

1. This painting is descriptive because it is portraying what Napoleon wanted others to percieve him as physically.
2. It describes the behavior of Napoleon in the way that he thinks he is a strong confident leader.
3. This painting is from the point of view of Napoleon so it is giving the beliefs of the elite which would pretty much be that he is better than everyone else.
4. The benefits of using this kind of source is that a picture actually shows you what things looked like during the time period.
5. The limitation of this source is that it is not truly what Napoleon looked like but what he wanted to look like.
6. We have not read any other historians' interpretations of this source or sources like this one. B.) 1. This quote is descriptive because it is giving Napoleon's personal opinion of the English nation not any facts.
2. The quote describes the behavior of the English because Napoleon describes them of all being like shopkeepers.
3. It tells of the actions of the elite and the ordinary people of England because Napoleon thinks they are all lower class citizens.
4. The benefit of this source is that it is a brief look into what Napoleon thought of his enemies.
5. The limitation of this source is that it doesn't go into why Napoleon felt this way about the English.
6. We have not read any other historians' interpretations of this source like this one.
C.) 1. This poem is desriptive because it is giving an exaggerate version of how Napoleon was just to scare the children.
2. The poem describes behavior because it shows how just as parents do today, parents at that time used to tell their children poems.
3. While it does not really say the point of view it is probably talking about the ordinary people that have to take care of their own children.
4. The benefits of this source is that it is kind of unique in the way that most other sources are factual but this is a creative poem that children would know.
5. The limitation of this source is that it does not really have any basis in fact it just was made to scare kids into behaving.
6. I think this poem is a little harsh to tell a little kid but it does show how harsh Napoleon must have been to the English. D.) 1. This quote is prescriptive because it shows that the English thought that they should go into war against the French not that they did.
2. It shows the previous victorious behavior of the English when they versed the French.
3. This is from the perspective of the ordinary people since it is the middle class that the government needs to convince to fight against the French.
4. The benefit of using this source is that it gives the point of view from the English which is different from all of Napoleon's views.
5. The limitation of this source is that it does not tell how the public actually responded to this leaflet.
6. We have not read other historians' interpretations of this source or sources like this one. E.) 1. This source is descriptive because it shows how Napoleon percieved himself as he was "fighting along side" his nation during various wars.
2. It describes what Napoleon believed his behavior on the battle field to be but it does not show any true behavior or idealology.
3. This painting shows the opinions of Napoleon and how he percieves himself and he was one of the elite.
4. The benefits of using this kind of source is that a picture actually shows you what things looked like during the time period.
5. The limitation of this source is that it is not truly what Napoleon looked like but what he wanted to look like.
6. We have not read any other historians' interpretations of this source or sources like this one.
