Reagan Letters Published

Time magazine has an article on Ronald Reagan’s recently published letters, in which the former president expresses a taste for Ayn Rand. What is striking about the letters is their sheer volume (about 5,000) and directness. Avoiding convoluted phrasing, Reagan’s authorial persona is almost classical. Arguments and thoughts are presented in a plain language that puts the reader and the writer on an equal level, a powerful element of Reagan’s style of communication.
