3. What are the author’s credentials? Is s/he a credible source?
The author is a skilled writer who has published other articles. He specifically addresses
historical issues and has established an educational background. The source’s credibility is thus
asserted by the fact that the author is a respected author in history. Second, the source gives

4. Which historical figure/document did you select? Why did you choose this topic to research?

the courtship Letters of Angelina Grimke and Theodore Dwight Weld.” journal of social history.

historical content.
5. Which online database did you use to find the article? Which keywords did you use?
I used Google Scholar as the online database to find the document. The keywords used included
Angelina Grimke’s Letter in the Liberator.
6. What is the specific topic and the general subject matter of the scholarly article?
The article’s general subject is the author’s thematic derivation entailing sex, desire, and
devotion. Nelson 2004, explains that Grimke had long feared that marriage was “sinful” because
far too often “[i]nstead of the higher, nobler sentiments being first aroused, and leading on the
lower passions captive to their will, the latter seemed to be lords over the former.” If Weld’s
response left the heterosexual nature of marriage a divine mystery, it provided abundant evidence
that he wanted a marriage of equality. He also believed that sex was too often a site of male
domination in marriage rather than an act between equals.
7. What is the author’s argument or thesis about the topic?
He argues that s plan, according to Angelina, notions of manhood gave men “a charter for the
exercise of tyranny and selfishness, pride and lust and brutal violence.” Worse yet, ideals of
womanhood “robbed essential rights, the right to think and speak and act on all great morals, the
right to fulfill the great end of her being, as a moral, intellectual and immortal creature.” Sarah
expressed the same idea: “instead of fumbling in the light of immortal creatures,” she wrote in
the fourth l series, “the mind is fettered by the idea which is early and dynamic into it, that we
must never forget the distinctions between
8. What types of evidence does the author use to support their argument? (For instance, do they
use letters, newspapers, visual sources, and other types of primary documents as evidence for
their claims? Also, what secondary sources, if any, do they refer to in the article?)
The author utilizes other scholarly articles to support his arguments; for instance, he quotes
passages of Grimke’s letters authored by others. For example, the quote, “it is the spirit, the spirit,
not a brother spirit, or a sister spirit, with none of the associations or incidents of the physical
nature moves upon me with overcoming power.” But if this is so, why the desire to hear from
you, see you? O! I am distressed that Is Am I sinning … [?] The conflict is great, for one want to
know where I am to be purified.’ Supports his explanation that Weld had described in his first
love letter-a romance that was “disembodied” and spiritual? So much so that she feared that her
desire to see her fiance physically might indicate that there was something sinful about the way
they felt toward one another.

The article serves to express the author’s perceptions of Angelina Grimke’s Letter in the

situations to give the article a realistic statue.

The historian does not speak about his historical stand; however, he hints that his work is purely
analytical and therefore bears no basis for argumentative persuasion. His thematic analysis of the
article is for an educational purpose relevant to his audience.
