Styron's moving commencement speech at his alma mater, Duke University. After a humorous beginning speaking of his failures as a student, and expressing concern that he sees "fear" on the face of Alexander Haig, not unlike that which he saw on Joe McCarthy's face thirty years earlier, Styron writes of America today: "we should be able to love it best when we refuse to allow reasonless fear to compromise our peace, and the peace of others". William Styron's address delivered to the graduating class of Duke University is a surprising combination of humor and power. It's theme, that fear is the real enemy, may not be especially original but he handles it in a highly original and compelling manner.
