This paper analyzes "Eleanor Roosevelt, a Personal and Public Life" By J. William T. Youngs, a biography of the infamous First Lady. It examines how the book describes Roosevelt as one of the most powerful and admired women in American history. It provides a detailed insight into her life and discusses how her difficult early life likely laid the groundwork for the immense caring and compassion that she showered on a variety of causes. It looks at how over the course of her life, she transformed herself from an orphaned young woman to an accomplished public figure and despite many criticisms of her public and personal life, she ultimately became a role model for future First Ladies and many other American women.

From the Paper:

"Eleanor's adult life was equally marked by personal difficulties. By many accounts, her husband Franklin D Roosevelt was not an ideal husband, and was often absent. Eleanor remained devoted to Franklin despite his betrayal of their marriage vows. Eleanor and Frank's third child died of influenza soon after birth. In addition, Eleanor was thrust into the highly public and stressful life of the First Lady after her husband was elected as President of the United States in 1932."
