Some day I want to write an essay about the point of view of an American who wasn’t an American, because he was born in the South and went to school in New England as a small boy with a … drawl, but who wasn’t a southerner in the South because his people were Northerners in a border state and looked down on all southerners and Virginians, and who so was never anything anywhere and who therefore felt himself to be more a Frenchman than an American and more an Englishman than a Frenchman and yet felt that the U. S. A. up to hundred years ago was a family extension.
–T. S. Eliot
