Product Description

Looking at the life of Abraham Lincoln through the lens of his writings, Fred Kaplan presents a literary view of the sixteenth President. His command of language ensured that his speeches would make a lasting impression on the American psyche; the attention to detail and nuance displayed in all his writings, from love poems to legal briefs, served as a tool for organizing and examining his thoughts as well as expressing them to others. This biography explores his intellectual involvement in the light of modern-day politicians who hire professional speech writers, as well as how public perception of Presidential words mirrors and has changed since his time.
