To do this question, you need first to borrow two concepts from English:

(what you see)

Connotation

(how it affects its audience)

This cartoon of 18 June 1947 was drawn by EH Shepard for the British satirical magazine Punch.

slide4

Denotation

Truman and Stalin are rival taxi-drivers.

Connotation

They are rivals for customers – rivals to help, but also rivals for business and influence/power.

Meaning

International relations by 1947 have become a competition – a rivalry for allies/ spheres of influence – between the superpowers.

This cartoon of 18 June 1947 was drawn by EH Shepard for the British satirical magazine Punch.

slide5

Denotation

The competition is taking place in the Balkans (eastern Europe), but Austria waits in line.

Connotation

The superpowers are competing for control of the countries of eastern Europe.

Meaning

The future of eastern and central Europe is at stake - is up for grabs.

slide6

Denotation

Stalin is pushing Hungary and grabbing Bulgaria’s bag to get them into the ‘Pension Russe’.

Connotation

‘Push’ and ‘grab’ are words of force/ bullying.

Meaning

Stalin is using the Red Army and terror to force eastern European nations into the Russian Empire.

This cartoon of 18 June 1947 was drawn by EH Shepard for the British satirical magazine Punch.

slide7

Denotation

Truman politely raises his hat to offer customers the ‘Liberty Hotel’, and ‘comfortable accommodation’.

Connotation

Liberty = freedom.

Comfort = prosperity.

Meaning

Shepard is basically asking: ‘Which would you prefer? Soviet force or American funding? Isn’t America’s way much better’. It presents the West as ‘the goodies’.

This cartoon of 18 June 1947 was drawn by EH Shepard for the British satirical magazine Punch.
