Review of After de Tocqueville by David Roderick

After de Tocqueville by David Roderick appeared in the Winter 2012 issue of The Georgia Review.  Mr. Roderick sings of the yearning for discovery of the world's most famous explorers woven together with what little may be remembered about their motivations.  The poet also wonders why we remember some inane events, such as the legend of Washington and the cherry tree, but forget more meaningful events, such as the support of the starving and displaced Irish by the more starving and displaced Indians.
