The editor mailed me with the initial concept for the article while it was being written. The topic was the elimination of certain American literary classics of the new UK syllabus. Despite living in Paris, I am an avid listener to BBC radio four, which provides me, apart from my favorite drama programs, the best current affairs programs. so, I was very well-informed about the topic.
The first idea the popped up in my mind was the Mayflower, being the vehicle which first exported the Anglo-saxon culture to the American shores, is now making the journey again, only this time with returned cultural goods, back to the new world.
