[ORDER SOLUTION] Triangle By David Von Drehle
Write 2-3 paragraphs in response to each of the topics = about 600 words.Topic A. Focus on 2 of the persons described in the text. What intrigues you about these people? Be specific. One reviewer noted: “Triangle by David Von Drehle, a Washington Post reporter, creates a detailed, nuanced account of the tragic events of 1911. It is one in which the evil the factory owners, the moneyed interests, the corruption of Tammany Hall appears a bit less than sinister, while the good the union organizers, the society matrons, the political reformers, and the workers themselves teems with the natural divisions and tensions that make the story less a melodrama and a much more human tale.” How does Von Drehle help you understand these people in less stereotypic ways?Topic B. Von Drehle ends his text with “As for the mostly nameless young women and men who went on strike in 1909 and bravely walked those relentless picket lines through a freezing winter–and especially those remarkable young people who later died at the Triangle–their memory grows. Their individual lives are mostly lost to us, but their monument and legacy are stitched into our world.” Do you think Von Drehle has made his case? how? Be specific — with citations of page numbers from the text.
