by James Joyce
17 minutes, 2 seconds
Unabridged Short Story
1914

Joyce

Sometimes romance needs a bit of deliberation; this is Joyce at his most satiric.
“The Boarding House” is the seventh story in his collection Dubliners, classic tales dealing thematically with miscommunication, isolation, class differences, and emotional paralysis in Joyce’s Ireland.

Narrated by Alex Wilson.

by Lord Byron
5 minutes, 19 seconds
Unabridged Narrative Poem
1816

Lord Byron

In which our hero, the most Romantic of all the Romantic poets, takes on the end of the world.

Written in Geneva, Switzerland in the summer of 1816, when Byron, Mary Shelley, Percy Shelley, and John Polidori spent their evenings telling each other ghost stories. The resulting tales included Shelley’s Frankenstein, Polidori’s creation of the vampire/vampyre genre (based on a novel fragment of Byron’s), and this gloomy, speculative verse.

A Christmas mystery story where even the narrator can’t be trusted to stay sober or keep his clothes on.

Performed by Susie Berneis and Robert Bethune.
