Body One: To begin with, London goes through the story by just giving people the gist of the people who met the violence of the earthquake while Anderson focuses on one discrete person even though many have had contact with the disaster we call Katrina. London informs us of the victims but doesn’t name them in detail. “With me sat Japanese, Italians, Chinese, and Negroes-- a bit of the cosmopolitan flotsam of the wreck of the city”( London 416). London clearly gives the race of the victims that surrounded him, although he doesn’t include the specifications of a normal human being like a name or physical appearance. He informs the reader about the earthquakeby giving a slight visual of the people it affected. London just gives the reader a …show more content…
London informs the reader of the zone briefly, and the impact the earthquake had. “At half past one in the morning three sides of Union Square were in flames”(London 416). Chiefly, London babbles mostly on the destruction that the fire caused to Union Square. He doesn't seem to be cautious of the area called Union Square, but just the fact the fire visited it on it’s path. The author doesn’t seem to give much information of what Union Square is, or why the fire hitting it was so crucial. “By Wednesday afternoon, inside of 12 hours, half of the heart of the city was gone” (London,413). In particular, London clearly clarified that half of San Francisco was devoured by the earthquake. Also, London doesn't include specifics about what was included in the half that was affected by the fire, he just gives the understandable idea of it. He doesn't give a reason why that side is included in the heart of San Francisco, he just informs the reader of the idea that some of San Francisco's proudest monuments were destroyed, but he doesn’t precisely give which. On the contrary, London mentions areas that deal with Katrina, but he makes sure to give facts of what the place is home too, and the amount of destruction Katrina really caused. “Until the nineteenth century, the Ninth Ward was a swamp, and, even after it became home to a black and immigrant white community, and was drained (in that order), it was ruins, but there was no withstanding the onrush of the flames”(413). Clearly, Anderson goes into the history of the Ninth Ward and specific details about what the Ninth Ward is, who lived there, and how the disaster impacted. This helps Anderson create empathy by showing how priceless it was, but now it is all destroyed. “At 2037 Desire, a block past Petrie’s home, three
