Annnnd…we’re back!

 

Back to our dark Bright Horizons journey, back with some original poetry from Phetote the Poet and Wayne Gatfield, and TWO chapters of Tom Jones to see us out.

 

Enjoy!

Continuing our journey…a dark one, as we join our unreliable narrator, Jax as they try to make sense of what’s happening to them, both inside and out, just what kind of place they’ve found themselves in, and what the hell is wrong with Bright Horizons.

Written by Maevyn Davis-Rackerby during junior high for the NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program in 2011, it’s my privilege to be allowed to try and do it justice.

Tom Jones, Book XII, Chapter 11, by Henry Fielding

Read by Mark Turetsky

Mark writes…

Book 12 Chapter 11 of Tom Jones.

This is part of an ongoing project in which I will record and post one chapter per week of Henry Fielding’s Tom Jones over the course of four years.

In this chapter, Tom, Partridge and their guide very quickly get lost on the road to Coventry. Partridge immediately asserts that it must be a witch who has cursed them, and not the obvious reason that it’s dark and raining.

 

 

 

Tom Jones, Book XII, Chapter 12, by Henry Fielding

Read by Mark Turetsky

Mark writes…

Book 12 Chapter 12 of Tom Jones.

This is part of an ongoing project in which I will record and post one chapter per week of Henry Fielding’s Tom Jones over the course of four years.

In this chapter, Jones, Partridge, and the post-boy continue their overnight journey, and come upon a great commotion. It turns out they run into a group of Romani celebrating a wedding. Tom meets their king, Partridge becomes too familiar with one of their women, and gets put on trial. It turns out the king’s justice is fair, and Tom gains some admiration for him and his ways.

Summary aside, this chapter is somewhat problematic. The word “Gypsy,” which is not considered to be a polite term these days, is used repeatedly. Also, the King’s dialect is broadly and comically drawn. I have no doubt that an 18th Century readership would have found nothing amiss with this portrayal, but it lacks a certain sensitivity to the modern ear.

BAD POETRY PENANCE #3

More BAD POETRY PENANCE!

I’ve been a delinquent, a layabout, a lout…I’ve rebelled against delivering on my promised…so it’s time for penance! And when I confessed to the Twitterverse that I had no poetry-writing skill, author Kevin Hearne came to the rescue with a tweeted, truly atrocious poem.

..and so BAD POETRY PENANCE (BBP for short) was born!
