Ooo…several new folks have joined in the fun via SoundCloud, with some original poetry set to music.

 

 Martyr a la Mode, by D.H. Lawrence

…from Look! We Have Come Through! 

Read by Xe Sands

Xe writes…

Fourth piece in a year-long exploration of Lawrence’s poetry-as-story collection, Look! We Have Come Through!

…and here we see a bit of a pick-up from “Nonentity,” which ends with, “for look, I am weary of myself.”

 

 

 

Sonnet 12, by William Shakespeare

Read by Diane Havens

Diane writes…

In celebration of William Shakespeare’s 450th birthday this week. A reminder of the transience of life, the fading of physical beauty, the mortality of the body, in the immortality of a poem. The reference to the clock and the passage of time leaves some seeing significance in the chosen order of this sonnet — Sonnet 12.

Tom Jones Book VIII Ch 5, by Henry Fielding

Read by Mark Turetsky

Mark writes…

Book 8 Chapter 5 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.

The story of the barber gets more interesting this week, as we discover that, in addition to having bad Latin, he has a history with Squires Allworthy and Western, and has met Jones once in the past.
