Ha! Back in the saddle, people! Yeehaw! Still Friday AND fresh content. AND singing – singing! Well, humming really, but still…
Appellate Jurisdiction, by Marianne Moore
Back. But not with Lawrence. I am having a bit of a challenge with him at present. Perhaps I am just feeling a bit too old for his bull–, um, his melodramatic wailing. Give me a month or two…
In the meantime, a bit of an experimental piece. I’ll just let it stand on its own and you can get from it whatever you do.
How Mowgli Got His Name, by Ruyard Kipling
A hungry little man’s cub wanders into the wolf’s den and begins to suckle from Mother Wolf. Soon after, the great Tiger, Shere Kahn comes to the lair to claim the man’s cub as his quarry, but Mother Wolf isn’t about to give him up. She challenges the tiger and he eventually leaves. In this scene, Mother wolf gives the little cub his name.

Tom Jones Book IX Ch 7, by Henry Fielding
Read by Mark Turetsky
Book 9 Chapter 7 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.
This week’s chapter ends off book IX, with a more thorough examination of the circumstances which led to Tom Jones finding Mrs. Waters. To put it shortly, she had been having an affair with Northerton, and Northerton believing he had murdered Jones and had nothing to lose, was attempting to escape to Wales, and attacked his traveling companion, Mrs. Waters, along the way.
