Tim O’Brien Presentation<br />The reason I love this clip is because it lets us hear the author’s tone. We have been learning about tone in this class and I am now just realizing the importance of it.<br />Just by watching you can tell the passion for which the author has for his stories. <br />
In Closing…<br />I was inspired to make this short presentation as my response to this week’s blog post because I was inspired by this author. This post is just so my classmates can learn more about O’Brien and his early life before and after Vietnam. I hope you enjoyed the included photos and video clips. I know that “The Things They Carried” was inspiring to me and such a great work of art. <br />
