Sometimes…

Sometimes, the Universe grabs your chin for a moment, forces you to look at something.

This week, this was that “something” for me.

Scène de rime ne pas franchir –
“Sommes-nous seul dans l’Univers
Tel que le mot même l’indique”
Rime scene do not cross
“Is one alone in the Universe
As the word itself indicates”

#IAmGray is a movement started by Benjamin Styles, in hopes of breaking the color barrier and eliminating racism. This poem was inspired by this concept. I stand behind and support this movement 100%. We are one! #colorblind #iamgray

 

 

Tom Jones, Book XIV, Chapter 8, by Henry Fielding

 

 

Read by Mark Turetsky

Mark writes…

Book 14 Chapter 8 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 pretends to Nightingale Sr. that Nightingale has already married Nancy. Of course, this enrages Nightingale’s father, who has just spent the evening bargaining with a rich girl’s father over a wedding contract. The two are interrupted by a third Mr. Nightingale, the uncle of young Mr. Nightingale. Uncle Nightingale seems thrilled by the love match, and we get to see, from his easygoing nature, where young Nightingale gets much of his attitudes.

 

 

 

Tom Jones, Book XIV, Chapter 9, by Henry Fielding

Read by Mark Turetsky

Mark writes…

Book 14 Chapter 9 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, Nightingale’s uncle continues to be the most polite person in his family, that is until Nightingale privately confides in him that he hasn’t yet married Nancy. At which point, uncle Nightingale shows his true face, and attempts to convince Nightingale that marrying Nancy would be folly, and convinces him to come home with him, so that he can further prevail upon Nightingale to change his mind.

Tom Jones, Book XIV, Chapter 10, by Henry Fielding

Read by Mark Turetsky

Mark writes…

Book 14 Chapter 10 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, things become somewhat more strained at the joyous gathering at Mrs. Miller’s house, but all that gets forgotten as Tom gets a cryptic visit from Mrs. Honour.

 

 

Tom Jones, Book XV, Chapter 1, by Henry Fielding

Read by Mark Turetsky

Mark writes…

Book 15 Chapter 1 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, Fielding delineates the difference between pursuing virtue in oneself, and virtue in others. It’s a short one.

Everyone in the family is doing poorly, as Nancy has attempted suicide, and Betsy, the younger daughter is certain that if Nancy succeeds in killing herself, both Mrs. Miller and she will follow soon after. Tom pledges to find Nightingale and make him do the right thing.

 

 

Tom Jones, Book XV, Chapter 2, by Henry Fielding

Read by Mark Turetsky

Mark writes…

Book 15 Chapter 2 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, we learn a little of what Lady Bellaston has been plotting since we last saw her at the beginning of book 14. She has undertaken to have her cousin Lord Fellamar to fall in love with Sophia, and to somehow use his love for Sophia against Tom in some way.
