OPTION 1/Literary Analysis of WWI.
1. My person is Theodore Roosevelt. Theodore Roosevelt also known as Teddy Roosevelt was the 26th President of the United States. Taken from a speech Roosevelt gave in Paris in 1910, this poetic inspiring verse, "In the Arena" is a favorite among many.

3. Theodore Roosevelt is related to the poem "In the Arena" because for one thing he wrote the poem. Also, this poem is based on a speech that he gave in 1910. Another reason why this poem is related to Roosevelt is because he is known for his energetic personality which is just like the line "Who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause"(Stanza 2 Line 4 & 5). Lastly, like the line "Who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement"(Stanza 2 Line 6 & 7) Teddy is also known for his range of interests and achievements.
