The author, Ann McFerran applauds the entire show as a whole by saying it was “as challenging and exciting as if it were being played by the first time.” McFerran then dedicates the majority of her piece to describing the various characteristics and quirks that Cheryl Campbell brought into her performance of the leading lady, Nora. After a long and detailed list of the actress’ strengths in the show, she sums it up by saying Campbell was “truly remarkable” and a “definitive portrayal” of the role. I found this particularly interesting since there are several similar articles reviewing the fantastic performances of actresses playing the role of Nora, such as Claire Bloom, but there are also critiques less friendly. So then while reading these reviews, it is up to the reader to decide if they are accurate perceptions, or if they are biased because of the feministic nature of the show. –Ashley Patten </div> </div> </div>

Kennedy discovered poverty in America when he campaigned in West Virginia and visited many poor people. In 1962, Michael Harrington’s <em>The Other America</em> had a big impact on Kennedy. The book described how the poor were “invisible,” because they did not have a political voice. The 1930s New Deal had focused on jobs. The 1960s needed to focus on education, both for job training and for political action. Kennedy started to focus on the poor, but he was assassinated in 1963. Lyndon B. Johnson replaced Kennedy. Johnson graduated from college into the great Depression, so he was prepared to extend Kennedy’s war on poverty even further. </p> </div> </div> </div>
