Hey all —
Here’s a link to part II of the guest blog I wrote for the summer seminar series of RETHINKING AMERICA, a fabulous blog for anyone interested in American History and/or current politics. This summer’s seminar offers a close reading of the Declaration of Independence — and my guest posting takes a bit of the Declaration and compares to American lit — namely, The Great Gatsby, Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass,” and Langston Hughes’ “Let America Be America Again.”
There’s also a link provided to Part I (on the guest blog post) if you missed it and want to read the whole thing.
Enjoy! Let me know your thoughts.
