Famous people are still human, and profiles can remind us of that

| | Comments (0)
Cynthia Gorney's profile of Dr. Seuss, "Dr. Seuss: Wild Orchestrator of Plausible Nonsense for Kids," not only informs the reader of Dr Seuss, but also accentuates his human nature.  The writer includes small details such as "[he] tried unsuccessfully to sell an alphabet book, and then in 1936 laide out the wonderfully paced mad fantasy of the boy named Marco in And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street... 20 publishers turned it down" and "he is a private, engaging, intensely driven man, with a lean and sharp-nosed look that gives him an air of severity at first" (Clark & Scanlon 169-171).

Being one of the most successful children's author of all time, some may think that his writing came easily to him.  However, the writer of the article points out that he was not immediately successful.  She indicates his struggle, therefore including the human part of Geisel into the profile rather than his famous image.  To add more to the personality of Geisel, Gorney describes how his facial features portray him.  She gives the reader this information so that they can visualize the face behind the brilliant books.

Because Gorney is able to demonstrate the human aspect of Dr. Seuss in her profile, she is able to write a relate-able, inspiring and strong article.
