This week in Studio 360, three stories about conflicts simmering below the surface of American life, and sometimes erupting. In Appalachian Spring, a choreographer and a composer teamed up to tell a fundamentally American story about a young couple struggling to reconcile community with individualism in a frontier town. In The House of Mirth, Edith Wharton’s modern young woman tries to be her own person, at the risk of making herself an outcast. And we tell the story of the catchy melody that Americans whistled as they marched off to kill each other in our country’s deadliest war.
