[As this godawful year nears its close, we could all use some positivity. So for my annual series of wishes for the AmericanStudies Elves, I wanted to highlight hopeful figures, texts, histories, and stories we should all better remember in the new year. Leading up to a weekend post featuring a more personal hope!]
Five powerful poems to inspire us all in the new year.
1) “The Palace-Burner”
2) “Songs for the People”
5) “The Tradition”
Last wish tomorrow,
PS. What do you think? Texts we should better remember?
