The clip Reading Thomas Wolfe in Polish Part 2 from Sophie's Choice (1982) with Meryl Streep
Here's an example of how emotionally evocative English can be
Sophie loved to tell how Nathan saved her life.
Their meeting was, for her...
Because I could not stop for death, he kindly stopped for me.
The carriage held but just our selves and Immortality.
Rhymes, rhymes... It's not hard enough to understand the language?
Just everyday life talk. He has to read us rhymes!
...what the beauty of the language can be...
when written by artists.
I look forward to seeing you next week. And remember...
You must not get discouraged.
One morning you'll wake up and find you've been dreaming in English!
Excuse me. Who did he say wrote that poem?
