(from CEL Ch. 4, p. 115: Chester McCovey’s prewriting for “The Front Porch”)
What does the presence or action of this subject reveal about the larger community? What issues, challenges, or insights does your observation of this subject help to make visible?
“What we see is a loss of community. The big garage shows us we’re leaving our own neighborhood a lot. The fact that the garage is connected to the living space shows us that we go from our living area directly, by pushing a button that opens the door, into the street and to another community far enough away that we drive to it. We don’t interact with our neighbors (we might not even know their names). We drive past them with our windows rolled up. We maybe don’t even smell or feel our neighborhood (I guess that’s an exaggeration, but there’s something there). Remember, we’re not talking about all houses. We’re talking about the ones built today. Is loss of neighborhood a loss to the people who live in those neighborhoods? Does big garage/no front porch mean loss of neighborliness? Yes, these relationships—or ones like them—can exist outside one’s own neighborhood. But what is the effect of this? What is a neighbor anymore?” (CEL 115)
