Listed below are links to weblogs that reference On Dickens and Listening [Heather Christle]:


i am certain that 'two cities' is one of dickens' greatest works. everything works out well. the revoltionaries want to kill the aristocrats -- and carton is the real aristocrat. he meets his true soulmate in the tumbril. lucy and darnay are just liberals and very naive. also, carton completely castrates darnay with his bold rescue plan. now lucy will always be in love with him and even her child is named after carton. darnay is rendered absolutely passive. he's not even conscious when he's rescued. etc etc. plus, the ronald colman movie is as good as the book, maybe even better.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
