Comparison Between Marie Colvin and Primo Levis Journalistic Works In this essay I will compare the ways in which two journalists have managed to give reportage of an event The first reportage is by Marie Colvin and the text is known as Baghdad under fire The second is by Primo Levi and the text is known as On The Bottom These two pieces are quite different in their actual subject matters and also in the way that they are expressed Colvins intentions were by writing this piece to expose some of the realities of the Allied mainly American bombing campaign The facts were very often silenced and or blurred in order to keep the general public supporting the war effort The realities were that many innocent civilians were also being killed or having their livelihoods ruined Colvin wanted to allow the general public to be able to see through the propaganda circulating at the time Levi has written On the Bottom in an attempt to expose the truths about what happened to Jews in concentration camps He also wants to tell other people how he is feeling as he is clearly disturbed by what he has been through Perhaps he believed that by expressing himself in this way he might rid himself of an emotional burden During the course of reading the two reports the biggest thing to strike me was the very clear difference in the way in which the author involved himherself with the presentation of the fact Levi makes no secret of his emotional feelings especially here We Italians had decided to meet every Sunday evening in a corner of the Lager but we stopped it at once because it was too sad to count our numbers and find fewer each time To me this shows that Levi is showing direct emotional involvement This is not necessarily a good thing as it may well have
