So often, a poet will seem to speak to us, so intimately from somewhere way back, and although they couldn’t really be talking to us, they are, aren’t they. They are.

Some themes just keep coming back and back and back.

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

Read by Mark Turetsky

Mark writes…

Book 13 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, Tom meets Mrs. Miller’s cousin, who was on the point of ruin. It’s none other than the highwayman that Tom met on the road to London, whom he helped. Tom sees that he has helped preserve a family from financial ruin, and both Mrs. Miller and the man, Mr. Anderson, both sing his praises.

Poem written and performed by Bob Beagrie, music by SJ Forth.

*The Dróttkvætt is a poetic form practiced by the Scalds in Old Norse during the ninth century Scandinavia.

Searim Seiðr
(Dróttkvætt)

Turbines tear at skylines
Stitched together by gulls
Fret weaving on wing-lift,
We watch one another

As ghosts weather-grounded
Grappling with apple dreams,
We hoard safe the heart-seeds
Hands held up to heaven.

River ripened verses,
Vacuum wrapped rune visions
Re-sung with the blood’s drum;
Draw crow days in coal-dust

Song-bound to the singers:
Spiral of a sea shell
Tide marooned rockpools
Recall last wave’s caress.

Evening wends homeward,
Hauls Night in its keep-net,
To warm flesh by firelight,
Faces dance in flame-tongues.

Wild eyes watch the crackle
Creeping embers crumble
Knife-edge draws Night’s gullet
Gather round, my Goslings.

Believe that you belong,
Become strong as iron –
Feed full on Night’s carcass
Keep its bones for relics.

Settle down for slumber,
Sleep shall send us stalking
Along seams of starways
Searching for the morning.

 

 

 

 

Tom Jones, Book XIII, Chapter 6, by Henry Fielding

Read by Mark Turetsky

Mark writes…

Book 13 Chapter 6 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 gets a mysterious invitation to a masquerade. Those of you who’ve been paying attention should be able to figure out who sent it. Also, his new friend Mr. Nightingale will be attending it with him.

 

 

Tom Jones, Book XIII, Chapter 7, by Henry Fielding

Book 13 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.

Well, the masquerade visit pays off for Tom, and in more ways than one. Tom meets with a masked lady, whom he assumes is Mrs. Fitzpatrick. The lady promises Tom that she will lead him to Sophia, if Tom does her one small favor. Tom is only too willing to oblige, and ends up returning to a house with the woman, only to unmask Lady Bellaston! Tom engages Lady Bellaston in a “conversation” that lasts for four hours. While nothing obscene is directly alluded to in the text, the included image (which I’ve censored here) will let the reader know what was clearly understood to the 18th Century reader of this book.

In this chapter, Tom hears the sad story of the relations of Mrs. Miller, who are all sick and dying. Tom, it just so happens, has money to help them out. It’s strongly implied that he got the money by becoming a gigolo.

– In team –

we have a poem
what is to do
the flowers are mine
the seeds are from you
you gave me the power
i gave them to you
i am the gardener
the artist are you
i made the colors
the painter are you
tell the philosopher
i know it is true
i did not exist before seen by you.

In this chapter, Tom gets turned away from seeing Mrs. Fitzpatrick ever again. When he returns to the house at which he’s staying, he finds another lodger, a young man named Nightingale being assaulted by his footman. He rescues Nightingale and they become fast friends. Also, please note the term vertù used in this chapter means knowledge and appreciation of the fine arts.

And here it finally is, the complete journey, including the final chapter in our journey…a dark one, as we join our unreliable narrator, Jax as they try to make sense of what’s happening to them, both inside and out, just what kind of place they’ve found themselves in, and what the hell is wrong with Bright Horizons.

Written by Maevyn Davis-Rackerby during junior high for the NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program in 2011, it’s my privilege to be allowed to try and do it justice.

In this chapter, Tom finally finds his way to London, and when he arrives, manages to talk his way into the house of the Irish peer who brought Sophia into town. The woman he meets there, however, is not Sophia, but rather Mrs. Fitzpatrick. Mrs. Fitzpatrick believes that Tom is Blifil, and therefore won’t tell him anything about Sophia’s whereabouts. Her maid then clues her in, but she decides that Tom is too much a rake to let see Sophia.

In this chapter, Mrs. Fitzpatrick visits her cousin Lady Bellaston to get advice on how to deal with Tom Jones and Sophia. Lady Bellaston seems interested in meeting Tom herself, and decides that she will get a good look at him when he returns to visit Mrs. Fitzpatrick. Of course, she’s strictly only doing this to protect her young relation, Sophia.
