Rhetoric & imagery in Obama's victory speech

Max Atkinson

It hasn't been posted on their website, probably because the layout with red circles around lines from the speech linked to the notes caused problems in creating a readable web page. The newspaper’s introduction to the piece is reprinted below, followed by the full text of the speech with my notes in italics between paragraphs (which are slightly fuller than those in the published version). At its simplest, the more use made of these techniques, the more impressed audiences will be.
