Alaska loves these two lines from the poet W. C. Auden: “You shall love your crooked neighbor / With your crooked heart.” What do these lines mean to you and why do you think Alaska likes them so much?

Hi Yasmine! :D
The character Alaska finds these lines fascinating because it relates to her love of others. She interprets it as "'birds of a feather flock together' Or from the bible: 'Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?' In other words, don't judge, you're not less dirtier than he is."
Yes, that is a good point William (or Will if you're offended by me calling you William). I agree.
Alaska finds them very fascinating because it really does relate to her love for others.
