America, Listen To Your Own

Lawrence, D. H.
November 1954
New Republic;11/22/54, Vol. 131 Issue 21, p71
This article presents information on the history of the U.S. The people should learn from the lovely monuments of its European past. These have an almost fatal narcotic, dream luxurious effect upon the soul, the U.S. must turn again to catch the spirit of her own dark, aboriginal continent. That which was abhorrent to the Pilgrim Fathers and to the Spaniards, that which was called the Devil, the black Demon of savage America, this great aboriginal spirit the Americans must recognize again, recognize and embrace. Now is the day when Americans must become fully self-reliantly conscious of their own inner responsibility. They must be ready for a new act, a new extension of life.
