History URGENT reflecting

Hi

What is a general way to reflect on an cartoon? I have some rough ideas like talking about perspective of the artist and the portrayal but I'm not sure if i'm missing something.

Thanks!

  1. There are almost always (if not always!) caricatures in a political cartoon. Look for them, describe them, and explain why you think the artist included them.

    What other types of cartoons are you dealing with?

  2. Its a czechslovakian cartoon depicting a kulak seeming to proudly lift a russians chin but the shadows show him strangling him.

    The second is a Herblock pulitzer winner - the grim reaper greating Stalin saying 'you were always a great friend of mine, Joseph'

  3. With my czechslovakian I think its portraying the Kulaks as vicious murderers that shouldn't be trusted even if they look nice and jolly. I think it was used to garner support for dekulakisation. The date is a 'circa' date so it might have been used to fuel hatred which would have made dekulakisation easier.

    My Herblock one I think is really good as it captures the esscence of Stalins purges, famine in the ukraine, dekulakisation everthing - the fact that his life dealt with death is so poignant.

  5. Your interpretations sound good. It would help if I could see them, though.
