Adam

Her får du hjælp til at analysere den forkortede version af teksten “Adam” fra 1993 af Michael Lee Cohen, som du finder i lærebogen Contexts (s. 136).

Michael Lee Cohen (f. 1965) er en amerikansk forfatter, som er uddannet på University of Harvard. Teksten er en del af bogen "The Twenty Something American Dream: A Cross Country Quest for a Generation", som er en samling af interviews udgivet i 1993. Interviewet er omsat i narrativ form, så det bliver en hybrid mellem sagprosa og skønlitteratur.

Repetition

Adam uses repetition to highlight that America is experiencing a decline as a country and society: “ ‘America,’ he says, ‘is in deep, deep, deep trouble’ ” (p. 138, ll. 31-32). The repetition shows Adam’s strong belief that this is the case. 

Adam also uses repetition to highlight his belief that the justice system is too forgiving with juvenile criminals who “ ‘go out and kill and kill again.’ ” (p. 138, l. 44). The repetition also has the purpose of making readers as angry as Adam that this is the case.

Adam also uses the word “very” repeatedly. For example: “I think it’s a very, very good learning experience and very exciting” (p. 137, ll. 9-10). This shows that Adam is an enthusiastic person. It also suggests his tendency to exaggerate.
