Martyr a la Mode, by D.H. Lawrence
…from Look! We Have Come Through!
Read by Xe Sands
Fourth piece in a year-long exploration of Lawrence’s poetry-as-story collection, Look! We Have Come Through!

Sonnet 12, by William Shakespeare
Read by Diane Havens
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
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.
