In its eight parts, this essay on The Right Stuff explores how literary devices, particularly structure, point of view and the use of the role of the narrator combined with journalistic material are exploited by the author to work in favor of an ideological focus more concerned with actual myth preservation than with reporting. In a reading against the grain, it will try to show how this bestseller endeavors to elicit admiration towards the archetype of the hero, by using ideological and structural resources, grounded on a by default mentality that chants "universal" emotions. A useful book for power holders and status quo at a time of positive social change.
