  • Could anyone write better? Aug 10, 2007
    by Sonny

    I was stunned by the beauty of the language used by John Hersey's introduction but then dumbfounded by the even more beautiful language of Agee. Compassion seeps through this masterpiece. Perhaps as I grew up in Southeast Texas I attened school with people so eloquently described in this book and so powerfully photographed. How did they have hope for their future and for their children? I understand America so much better now than I did before breathing in this book. Students who have no interest in school should be encouraged to read this book so thery can see the results of their educational failure if thier education is not taken more seriously.
