Rounding the corner of November somehow, Thanksgiving just around the weekend, and frankly, I cannot process that in any possible way. So I’m ignoring it.
Let’s see…what’s on deck this week? A bit of Amy Lowell, Tom Jones…some new work by Wayne Gatfield and Philip Carter, and a newcomer – Lucy Allen.
The Letter, by Amy Lowell

Oh Amy Lowell, how I have missed you! This one doesn’t speak to me in any particular way aside from her phenomenal skill at setting words to such frustration and longing. I decided not to wait until I had a love connected only to me by letter to record it.
Rose Scented Sunset, by Wayne Gatfield

Book 11 Chapter 4 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 begins the story of Mrs. Fitzpatrick, starting off with a season at Bath. Both she and her aunt Western were wooed by the same man, who married the niece, and thus estranged her from her aunt.
