  • Ep. 549, The Room in the Dragon Volant, Part 3of5, by Sheridan LeFanu

    · 01:03:25 · The Classic Tales Podcast

    A mysterious magician tells of things no other human can know, and the Dragon Volant’s past begins to unfold. Sheridan LeFanu - today on The Classic Tales Podcast. Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening. This episode of The Classic Tales Podcast is made possible by our listeners. Many, many thanks to all those who have gone to www.thebestaudiobooks.com and become financial supporters. We couldn’t do this without you. If you are looking at a top-notch way to expand your audiobook library of the classics, becoming a supporting member is seriously a great way to go. Each of the monthly coupon codes is good for one year since the time it is issued. And so, if you’re going on a trip and you need a great audiobook, you can get many of our longer titles for free using your coupons. Some are a few dollars over 8 dollars, but many are under. For instance, one supporter went and picked up Captain Blood, Huckleberry Finn and Wuthering Heights using her coupon codes, and the cost of it all was only 5 dollars after using her coupon codes. On top of the codes, you also get a 3-4 hour-long portion of a new audiobook. This month we finish up 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Next month we begin Jane Austen’s Emma. And you help to keep The Classic Tales Podcast going strong. And you get all this for $5/month. Thank you so much for stepping up and showing your support. In today’s story, the palanquin mentioned might be a little confusing. At least, it confused me when I first read this story. It’s an enclosed litter borne on the shoulders of men by means of poles. It can also be simply lifted enough to miss the ground – like the conveyance of the Witch of the Waste in Miyazaki’s Howl’s Moving Castle. Also, the Grand Galerie des Glaces is a special room where guests would often go and partake of ice cream and other cool refreshment. Glaces is “ice cream” in French. The Phantom of the Opera’s Opera House in Paris also has a Galerie des Glaces. But I can’t see the phantom digging in to some sherbet, though.   And now, The Room in the Dragon Volant, Part 3 of 5, by Sheridan LeFanu.

Today’s story is by Joseph Sheridan LeFanu, who was one of the great pioneers of the gothic novel and short story. He is likely best known for his novella, Carmilla, which spotlighted female vampirism. His short stories are very rich in the gothic tradition, and his novel Uncle Silas is also very satisfying. In today’s portion of the tale, we meet our narrator and hero, Robert Beckett, who is a wealthy young Englishman who is travelling to Paris right after the battle of Waterloo. We also meet some of the main characters of the story. By the way, Dragon Volant in this instance means “Flying Dragon”. And now, The Room in the Dragon Volant, Part 1 of 5, by Sheridan LeFanu.

She was Austrian, and this story of a kindly old German doll maker reminded me of her, and that horrible monkey. And now, The Doll’s Ghost, by F. Marion Crawford.

  • Ep. 545, Lamia, by John Keats

The Lamia is the predecessor to the modern vampire. She is originally from Greek Mythology. Lamia was a mistress of the God Zeus. After a run-in with Zeus’ jealous wife Hera, Lamia was turned into a monster that devours children, resembling a snake. Mothers throughout Europe used to frighten their children with stories of the Lamia, in hopes to induce good behavior. Later traditions refer to many Lamiae. These were folkloric monsters similar to vampires and succubae that seduced young men and fed on their blood. Today’s tale is a narrative poem composed of rhyming couplets. It tells the story of a rather sympathetic Lamia who is granted human form by the God Hermes. The major source of Keats’ material for the poem was a brief passage in Robert Burton’s The Anatomy of Melancholy, published in 1621. It tells of the marriage of a 25 year old philosopher, Menippus Lycius, to “a phantasm in the habit of a fair gentlewoman”. And now, Lamia, by John Keats.

Ivan Turgenev was more famous than Leo Tolstoy or Dostoyevsky during his lifetime, though now the roles seem largely reversed. Like Charles Dickens, Turgenev wrote about the injustices to poor people. This had a tendency to bring down on him the wrath of the Russian government, who harassed him incessantly. He finally got fed up with it all, and eventually fled Russian and settled down in Germany. Today’s story was first published in 1864, just a few months after Turgenev left Russia. And now, Phantoms, by Ivan Turgenev.

Dick, author of many stories that have become blockbusters, including Minority Report, Blade Runner, and The Man in the High Castle. A pioneer in modern science fiction, Dick’s works tend to have pretty serious themes, such as today’s story. Though it’s great science fiction adventure, the underlying theme remains amazingly relevant for today: Will the fall of mankind occur because we are victims to our own compassion? Or will it happen because of our destructive tendencies? How are the two connected? And now, The Second Variety, part 1 of 2, by Philip K. Dick

Lewis picked up a copy of this book at a railway bookstall. Lewis would later write: “I have never concealed the fact that I regarded him as my master; indeed, I fancy that I have never written a book in which I did not quote from him.” When asked in 1962 to list the top 10 books that had influenced his attitude toward writing and his philosophy of life, Lewis put Phantastes in the #1 slot. MacDonald was very familiar with German fairy tales, or märchen. Phantastes was one of the first such books originally written in English. And now, The Magic Mirror, by George MacDonald

  • Ep. 538, The Purloined Letter and The Leopard Man's Story, by Edgar Allan Poe a

    · 00:58:43 · The Classic Tales Podcast

    Journey through the history of mystery with Edgar Allan Poe and Jack London, today on The Classic Tales Podcast. Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening. This episode of The Classic Tales Podcast is made possible by its listeners. With much heartfelt gratitude, we thank those who have gone to www.thebestaudiobooks.com and become financial supporters.

Your monthly support really helps us keep this running, and it really is a great value. Thank you for your support. Today, we’re going to take a bit of a journey. Edgar Allan Poe is widely acknowledged as being the one who invented the armchair detective/mystery genre. The Gold Bug, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, and today’s story of The Purloined Letter are among his great achievements in creating a genre which others went on to perfect. Though The Purloined Letter isn’t the first of his mystery creations, you can still see how Poe is still feeling out how to explain how he arrived at his conclusions. It’s not perfect. But it’s an interesting window into the mind of how the mystery genre was created. The Purloined Letter was first published in 1844. Nearly 60 years later, in 1903, Jack London wrote our second tale, The Leopard Man’s Story. Notice how far the genre has come. London had the likes of Doyle, Chesterton, Collins and many others to learn from. But the way he introduces his story, cultivates it, and delivers the solution to the mystery is nothing short of elegant. I hope you enjoy this journey through the history of mystery.

It’s back to school time, and I’d like to extend a huge and hearty “Thank You” to all of the teachers out there. My fourth grade teacher was Mrs. Hannum. When I was in third grade, and I saw how strict she was when her class would come to the school assemblies, she scared me to death. I found out she was going to be my teacher, and I thought I was going to die. After my first day of school, my opinion totally changed. She was so fun and kind. And later that year, she read out loud the entirety of Tom Sawyer. It was amazing. She did the southern drawl of Aunt Polly perfectly, at least to my fourth grade ears. I know there are a lot of reasons to praise and enjoy Mark Twain and Tom Sawyer, but when I think of Tom Sawyer, especially Aunt Polly’s opening lines, I hear my fourth grade teacher. I heard it years later when I recorded Tom Sawyer as an audiobook. And I hear it now. Thank you for being teachers and educators, and opening up to us the wide world and its wonders. I’m sure there are times when it seems like nothing sinks in, but some things we literally remember forever. And now, The Metamorphosis, Part 3 of 3, by Franz Kafka.

Your monthly support really helps us keep this running, and it really is a great value. Thank you for your support.   Now, a quick word or two about Franz Kafka and The Metamorphosis. Most people consider The Metamorphosis to be a highly autobiographical work. Maybe Franz Kafka never woke up turned into a bug, but he probably felt like he did. Why? He was a German in Czech Prague, he was a Jew in a pretty virulently anti-Semitic place and time, he was sickly, he had serious issues with his dad, he was a failed businessman. The list goes on. It seems like every day he had a mountain of pain to deal with. He was made to feel “lesser-than” his whole life, and what’s lower than a verminous bug?   We kind of just want to give him a hug. This insect isn’t a cute little ladybug or butterfly. It’s a gross, slime trail leaving, brown goop spewing little monster of a vermin. It’s even portrayed as being malicious and evil, as we’ll see today.   And now, The Metamorphosis, Part 2 of 3, by Franz Kafka.

    The adventures in the Neverland continue, today on The Classic Tales Podcast. Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening. What do you get with The Classic Tales Podcast? Literary drama with Pride and Prejudice, Mystery with Sherlock Holmes, Science Fiction with Herland, Adventure with Allan Quatermain, and fantasy with Peter Pan - and that’s just in the first half of the year!  For 11 years now, The Classic Tales Podcast has delivered astoundingly high quality classic tales week after week. We have journeyed to Dracula’s Carpathian castle, and swung through the jungle with Tarzan. We’ve visited Italy with Lucy Honeychurch, and swashbuckled with Zorro. We’ve been terrified by Edgar Allan Poe, and laughed out loud with P.G. Wodehouse. And all the while, we’ve been getting smarter. From expanding our vocabulary to fending off Alzheimer’s, listening to classic audiobooks is just so, so good for you. And, it’s super fun!
