OCTOBER 20th: "The Goblin Market" by Christina Rosetti - Part 2
The poem itself is really written in Acts, like a play. There are meters and rhythms internal to each Act. Part 1 is the section I think of as "The Great Fruit Orgy." The Part 2 is "In Denial" followed by tomorrow's selection: Part 3 - "Truth and Consequences."
I have performed this many times, but one of my favorites has been presenting it with friend Dubhna Rhiadra in Second Life (c) as a duet reading. Maybe that is because she always insists on me reading Laura. No, seriously ... she is in Wales and I am in the Pacific Northwest, yet we connect when we read in a way that still stuns me, given that we've never shared the same air space. There are several colleagues I connect with that way as a virtual perfomer. It always seems and feels like a miracle, and it always leads to the very best performances.
