I nearly wrote a Metzian-like response to 9/11 the other day. Instead I chose to go with terse. Still, I couldn’t get the Metz response out of my mind, but thankfully before I began, I checked Mike’s blog. He has put up a four-part response taken from his paper, “‘We Will Never Forget’: Metz, Memory, and the Dangerous Spirituality of Post-9/11 America.” I liked it so much that I put it in my works consulted page for my MA thesis back when I wrote that. Mike’s paper is well worth a read and you can find here parts 1, 2, 3, and 4. So go read it.
