I must sheepishly admit that “Citizen Kane” is not something I am familiar with. I know of Orson Welles and have heard of “Citizen Kane” but it is not something I have ever viewed or read until now. On the other hand, not having a clue about whom Mr. Kane or Mr. Gettys are may prove to be beneficial to this assignment. The first thing I noticed, not having any clue who these characters are, is that Mr. Kane seemed to be using dysphemism’s to downplay Jim Gessys’ character. Kane appeared to be emphasizing the “disagreeable aspects” of Gessys. I also found some of Kane’s statements to withhold some weaseling qualities. It was not so much that Kane did not support his arguments as much as it seemed like his arguments were weak. He made sure there would be no room for anyone to criticize him or his arguments, no way for him to be challenged; thereby, leaving himself a way out if one did find something wrong with him later. Kane was very forceful in his speech and at times showed anger which made him seem passionate about his topic.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
