The media role in ma
The media role in making Jack the Ripper fauoms as the "first serial
killer" also indicates how technology changes perception. The murders
happened just after the popular press developed. The British press is known
as "Fleet Street" because they were located there to be near the courts
where so many colourful stories originate. Whitechapel, the barbarous slum
where the Ripper murders happend is a short walk from Fleet street. If they
had happened elsewhere I doubt they would have been seriously
reported.Indeed the press played a greater role than merely reporting. It
is a well known secret that the "Jack the Ripper" letter was actually
written by a journalist (there was an earlier but less interesting letter
which is possibly genuine). Without that letter we would not have the name
and indeed without the entire campaign not all of the murders would have
been attributed to one person - murders of prostitutes were and still are
common in such places.

this poem is so emotional, as his brother died in th civil war
i guess his brother is the hero of the poem
the most touching thing is the mother.

I've been studying on Walt Whitman for a While and I think this is one of
the best poems of him about Civil War.
