The area is also very heavily mined. I drew up a small outline in an old black notebook and began writing. I also realize how bad this makes Memphis look to the rest of the nation. If I get through this lot, no more for me. This old, brown world of hissing gas fires, strange smells on the stairs, and filial duty worn like some heavy overcoat: how it hypnotises.

Abstain from saying anything about powdered eggs, dehydrated potatoes, fried rice, fresh milk or ice cream. The letters are like little stories; here she is, Cinderella waltzing in her silver dress at a debutante party, or, talking about life and love with handsome boys at any number of Ivy League colleges, or, stunning her professors all of them "dears" with another villanelle. She is an abnormally altruistic person, and I have realized lately that we have to fight against her selflessness as we would fight against a deadly disease. The next story sits us beneath four screens, on which are projected the locations of two Punjabi soldiers in the first world war. Let her--let all of us let her--rest in peace. If he doescomfort him, for he is still reminiscing.

My whole squad is in this bunker, and they are all a bunch of screwballs. I couldn't stop it. Expansion Activities Have students gather, read and share letters from their own families and compare them to the Curtis Family Letters. Marion Lee Kempner, platoon leader, Co.

Letters Home book

We expect to catch a lot of hell through May because it seems that the VC are really putting a big push on. Aurelia Plath's final comment in "Letters Home" painfully reveals her ever disciplined, uncomprehending grief.

Here is the other Sylvia who loved all the dear ones--Grammy, Grampy, brother Warren, and Mommy most of all. We are working four to five hours extra in the supply room trying to straighten out the foul-up in our records. She does not have to be gallant or good. Eva was a woman consumed by fears: of thunder, cows, dogs, planes, being out after dark.

I cry too, not much, just when I touch the sore spots. Warren and I both love you and admire you more than anybody in the world for all you have done for us all our lives. Aurelia Plath, who alleges to have had a "psychic osmosis" with her daughter, was smitten by English literature, and here was her Sylvia entering the world of her dreams.
