Life Influences and Motivations
The Magic of W.E.B. Du Bois
Guterl uses various ways in order to portray how much the Easter Rebellion hurt so many people by using tone words that give a sense of how depressing the moment was. He quotes Du Bois from an article he wrote in the Crisis, saying that the slums in Dublin for the white are "more bitter depths of human degradation than the black slums of Charleston and New Orleans..." Though Du Bois had said this, he also felt some something for these people saying that it was very unnecessary and redundant rebellion.
