International Analog Criticism: The "Scandignation" Addresses of Willy Brandt and Richard Nixon.
Chaly, Ingeborg
The resignation speeches of West German Chancellor Willy Brandt and United States President Richard Nixon are compared and the rhetorical efficacy of each figure is assessed in this paper. Analog criticism is employed to support the argument that in the particular subgenre of "scandignation" addresses, Brandt came much closer than Nixon in achieving his objectives, repairing his tarnished ethos, and meeting the expectations of his auditors.
