  • 4. Tim O’Brien Presentation
    The reason I love this clip is because it lets us hear the author’s tone. We have been learning about tone in this class and I am now just realizing the importance of it.
    Just by watching you can tell the passion for which the author has for his stories.
  • 5. O’Brien in Vietnam
  • 6. Tim O’Brien Today
  • 7. In Closing…
    I was inspired to make this short presentation as my response to this week’s blog post because I was inspired by this author. This post is just so my classmates can learn more about O’Brien and his early life before and after Vietnam. I hope you enjoyed the included photos and video clips. I know that “The Things They Carried” was inspiring to me and such a great work of art.
