Literature and Community 2 Thesis Literature has been the cornerstone in American History. Many cultures come from all types of backgrounds that deal with poetry. Many authors come from all around the globe sharing the same thoughts within love. People understand poetry to be a way into a person’s heart. This Land is Your Land Many American children at the ages three to seven, sing a song that is rather popular within the literature world. W. Guthrie wrote “When the sun came shining, and I was strolling, and the wheat fields waving, and the dust clouds rolling. As the fog was lifting a voice was chanting: This land was made for you and me” (This Land is Your Land, 1912-1967) Many students believe this poem brings a brighter light within our nation. The words from W. Guthrie , “this land was made for you and me,” (This Land is Your Land, 1912-1967) reminds indaviduals what this land was made for. From the words that were written love, honor, and solitude comes with great affect on american children. They were not only written for America, people feel they were written for all nations of all sizes. A Pitty We Were Such a Good Invention
