Transcript of Fear the Short Dead Dude

A. This would fall under the category of assertion because Napoleon said it with a lot of enthusiasim, however, it is not true. It could also be called Name Calling and Pinpointing the Enemy. B. This is a Propaganda technique. It shows Napoleon in an honorable pose, which symbolizes his honor. The dagger at his side represents his bravery to fight. The cloths and the fact that his hand is on the crown show his wealth and power. This would be considered Glittering Generalities. C. This is used as propaganda to give people the thought that he would fight and suffer along with his men instead of stay back and observe the battle. Basically, he's using plain folk to show the armies of France that he is one of them. D. This is cardstacking because he is presenting only the positive side of death, if there is one. E. This is probably the best example of Napoleon propaganda. It portrays his as being young, hansome, fit, and courageous. In reality, he was short, fat, and bald, but to the people who knew no better, this is what they thought he looked like. This is a form of band wagon because a crowd would want to follow a leader who looked like this. "England is a Nation of Shopkeepers."
-Napoleon Death is nothing, but to live defeated and inglorious is to die daily.
Napoleon Bonaparte
A. 1. This statement is presciptive because it was Napoleon voicing his opion against the English. Though it may not be true, that is just what he thought people should think about it.
2. This is describing ideology because it is showing what Napoleon (and a lot of other French people) thought of England.
3. It tells the beliefs of the elite, mainly Napoleon. It is a quote directly from his lips. Needless to say, he wasn't a real big fan of the English.
4. We can answer the question of what were Napoleon's views towards the English. We also now know what is one of the reasons that the English didn't like Napoleon.
5. We can't answer why he said this question and we can't answer what England's direct response was to this quote. However, we can guess that it wasn't something good.
6. Most of the other historians (if not all) believe as I do: It was just Napoleon feeling high of himself and insulting his enemies. B. 1. It is a descriptive source because Napoleon was using it to try to describe himself to the people of France. Maybe he tried to show them what he felt like on the inside.
2. It describes ideology because this is what the people believed Napoleon to look like, and it is what he saw himself as too.
3. It tells me that the elite where able to full the ordinary people into thinking what they wanted them to think.
4. We can now figure out why a lot of people didn't see Napoleon for who he really was because he didn't want them to. It also shows what kinda opion Napoleon had of himself.
5. We're not able to know what the reaction from the people was just by looking at this portrait. We also don't know just how much Napoleon really looked like this.
6. Well, some historians say it worked in fooling the people, other say it didn't, but over all conclusion is still that Napoleon had a high opion of himself. C. 1. It is descriptive because it depicts Napoleon getting ready for battle. This is how it was.
2. It describes Napoleon's behavior of leading his troops into battle. Just how proud he was.
3. It shows how the elite dressed and what the soldiers (who were usually nomal people) dressed in times of combat.
4. We can answer of what kind of weather conditions the French army went through and what was the uniform for the Napoleon and his men.
5. We can't answer where it is they are located, where they are going, and who are they currently fighting.
6. Well, I'm sure most of them would know where they are located, but mainy would probably praise Napoleon for leading the forces himself instead of getting some other General to do it. D. 1. It is prespective because it is Napoleon encouraging the people to die for what he thought was right. This is his prespective of death.
2. It describes both ideology and behavior of Napoleon. He believed this full heartly, so his behavior was affected too.
3. It tells of the beliefs of Napoleon. His views on life, defeat, and death.
4. We now get an idea of why Napoleon wasn't afraid to invade countries he probably didn't have a chance at taking over in the first place. Also, we also can see how Napoleon inspired his men to fight along with him.
5. We don't know what the peoples reaction was to this quote or if it actually did inspire them.
6. Some historians would agree, some would disagree. In the end, it's just a matter of opion.
E. 1. It is Napoleon's prespective of himself. He thinks this is what he looks like on the inside.
2. Ideology because this is what Napoleon wanted the people to believe he looked like because they would follow a leader who looked like this.
3. It tells the beliefs of Napoleon and what he thought of himself.
4. We, of course, know Napoleon's self image plus why people who had never seen the real Napoleon remained loyal to him.
5. We don't know if people really fell for it or if they just laughed and laughed. We also don't know if the enemy used this as propoganda.
6. Most historians say the same thing: Napoleon's high of himself.
