    With as much vitriol and negative crap going on around us every day lately not all of it undeserved mind you , I found it tremendously heartening to hear someone speak so passionately and unabashedly about loving their country and being willing to fight and sacrifice to preserve the ideals for which it was founded Surprisingly, I found this to be an even emotionally stirring work than Paine s famous Common Sense I read this piece immediately after finishing the historical fiction novel To Try Men s Souls A Novel of George Washington and the Fight for American Freedom, whose title is derived from the famous first line of this series of essays The combination of reading about the horrendous conditions faced by Washington s army prior to the crossing of the Delaware and leading up to the Battle of Trenton, which turned the tide in the Revolutionary War, and then experiencing Paine s incredibly powerful words to the American people to keep the faith and persevere in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds was a very special moment for me I have included portions of the first essay the beginning and the ending to give an idea of the power of Paine s words However, I think havi...

    I know this was a huge propaganda tool I know this is one man s impassioned opinion and that I must take it all with a grain of salt But I just can t help but be pulled in by Paine s persuasions and believe that what he says is the one and only truth What a beautiful wordsmith he was with such awesome lines as What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly Tis dearness only that gives every thing its value Not to mention his powerful opener These are the times that try men s souls The summer solider and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country but he that stands it NOW, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman Can you imagine how this rallied General Washington s despondent troops Can you imagine the fire it light under un enlisted men to get up and join the fight His last and final pamphlet entitled The Last Crisis is filled with hope for a new world that...

    Excellent book for understanding the feelings of Americans as they declared their independence from Great Britain Makes you want to learn than just one side of the issue For those interested in American Revolutionary War history this is a must read.

    These are the times that try men s souls The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country but he that stands it NOW, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the glorious the triumph What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly Tis dearness only that gives everything its value So begins this classic work by Thomas Paine written between 1776 and 1783 , a piece, dare I say, fiery than Common Sense, in which he defends the American cause against the British in the American Revolutionary War What made the work particularly incendiary to me was the section directed to General William Howe, which begins To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture Enjoy, sir, your insensibility of feeling and reflecting It is the prerogative of animals Ouch In closing, Paine writing here under the pseudonym Common Sense writes that It was the cause of America that made me an author made it impossible for me, feeling as I did, to be silent I have likewise added something to the reputation of literature, by freely...

    I taught The Crisis for 6 years in my AP Language class This is a wonderful work for preparing students for the AP test and for ACT preparation as it is a non fiction persuasive argument with metaphor allusion, parallelism and historical significance Because of the richness of allusions in the text and allusions to the text, this is a piece any writer or aspiring educated citizen should read Thomas Paine s passion is refreshing in it s zeal, and enlightening to the tone and mood of the era My favorite line is What we obtain ...

    I wish this was either shorter or smaller The random selections following The Crisis that are provided feel fragmented, and at times I wish there was some historical context provided with the text But Paine is a good writer, very passionate and determined an...

    A large part of the book is about boosting the morale of the country during times when the outcome was uncertain Paine can be intemperate at times I m not surprised that over time he alienated many of his friends so that only 6 people came to his funeral.

    In The Crisis, Paine displayed his full power as a propagandist His first Crisis was written in the dark winter of 1776 when the war was going badly for the Colonials, the times that try men s souls, as he put it His call to action in adversity, his sneer at the summer soldier and the sunshine patriot are as stirring now as they certainly were then He stripped his subject of every side issue, every nuance that might encourage wavering or compromise, and focused his reader exclusively on the goal at hand Under Paine s pen, every British victory is shown as an actual setback, every Colonial retreat is a brilliant maneuver to entrap the enemy into spreading itself too thin Even slight Colonial victories like Trenton become huge, earth shattering Nothing the British do can be of any consequence in the end, and ultimate victory is all but assured so long as the Americans will simply keep at it The brilliant thing is, Paine was right The British, far from home and facing a huge, hostile territory, had no chance of ultimate victory so long as the Colonials kept an army in the field As Paine pointed out, only ab...

    These are the times that try men s souls Like most Americans, I knew the quote and the source, but not the entirety of Paine s essays and letters from his years serving in the American army under Washington Reading all thirteen of the Crisis series is like looking at the blog of an American Revolutionary War soldier It s angry, it s self justifying, it s personal.Some essays in the Crisis are independent works, written for publication by American printers Others take the forms of letters to General Howe, the British commissioners at New York, and the people of England Paine s essays...

    Although this is an excellent read for a contemporary feeling of the revolutionary generation of Americans it does get repetitive and long winded in parts Several of the Crisis papers are brilliant but others are not Thomas Paine was definitely one of the most...
