Barack Obama - speech analysis - Inaugural speech 2009 - Today we gather because we have chosen hope over fear English Exam No. 1 1) This Inaugural speech from Obama “Today we gather because we have chosen hope over fear”, held on the 20th of January 2009 and later published by the White House press office, is one of many speeches held by Obama that refer to the challenge of change that the United States faces at the moment. In this one Obama clearly states that the U.S. faces a crisis in which the problems are “real” and “serious”­.…
Barack Obama: Speech analysis: Acceptance speech for the democratic party - American Dream

Analytical text (1)


The American Dream is the simple idea that the United

States of America is the place where everyone has the

chance of becoming happy. ''Becoming happy'' is meant in

many ways. Not just economic success but also the possibility

of living in freedom and safe. The principles of the American

Dream are that anybody with a god-given talent, character

(believing in God) and a lot of effort (hard work and perserverance)

can achieve almost anything they want. The U.S. is also the

only place where the American Dream is possible because

here is the only place where you have a great balance of

political,social and economic environment and this is also

conditioned by America's history and the origin of the culture.


The presidential candidate for the Democratic Party is

senator Barack Obama who makes use of the idea of the

American Dream in his speech accepting his Party's

nomination. Hereafter, I am trying to show up the most

significant aspects that Obama employed in his speech.


First of all, Obama refers to himself as a living example of

the ''from rags to riches'' motif. His parents , ''a young man from

Kenya and a young woman from Kansas who weren't well-off

or well-known'' (l.9) , as a typical example for normal people and

then looking at himself as (a successful person) a presidential

candidate is a really strong instance. Not just that it seems like

he proved that a main idea of the American Dream is real,

but also, because of the fact that he is an African American ,

it strengthens his apposite argument that the American Dream

works for anybody regardless of his ethnic and/or social background.


Besides that, Barack Obama refers to the American Dream

in his speech when he says that all Americans ''have the obligation

to treat each other with dignity and respec.....[read full text]

pursue their dreams and put enough effort in it.


Moreover, Barack Obama makes use of the picture of him talking

''to [his] daughters when [he] tucks them in at night''(ll.72;73) .

The people in the audience link themselves subconsciously to

Obama because they identify themselves with him and also see

that he is an usual guy like them. In addition to that he does not

just connect to the people but he also seems to be a kind and a

familiar person. Which makes Obama even more likeable and this

creates an even stronger bond betw.....

and impressivespeech from Martin Luther King, Jr.

But instead of talking about just a ''dream'', which just is the wish that

might become true, Barack Obama uses the word promise, so that

there is no doubt about the compliance of ''America's promise''.


These stylistic devices create an atmosphere of departure and

a great, strong and impressive aura around Barack Obama.

In addition it reinforces his capabilities and his sympathy the

audience feels for him. And of course they are suitable with his
