February 16-17, 2013: Crowd-sourced Love
[In honor of Valentine’s Day, this week I’ve been highlighting a handful of the many things—moments, voices, interesting little details that mean a lot—that I love about America. This crowd-sourced post is drawn from the responses and loves of fellow AmericanStudiers—but there’s lots more to love, so add your thoughts, please!]
Amanda Couture shares the Sylvia Plath love, for the poems highlighted in that post as well as for “Ariel.”
Jeff Renye highlights another favorite moment from an American film, “I love the smell of napalm in the morning.”
On Twitter, Barbara Pittman shares her love for “The last eight lines of Whitman’s ‘Song of Myself.’”
Next series starts Monday,
PS. You know you love it (whatever it may be)! So share it, please!
