"Him behind completely. Literature is a conversation between authors and between books. And there's just some people that keep getting our attention for some reason or another. There's something that they said there that still speaks to us, and I think left craft. Unlike other writers, we have been for gotten of the time period. Really does say things that jive with her modern experience, not only, you know the questions about living in AA. In a world that is Phantom Listen, unforgiving and where your life might have no meaning but also the fact that some of his stories are peppered with issues of race. I think is why we keep looking at him because he is one of the writers that actually has that baked into the story and we can actually Use those blocks to build something new. You can't do that with other writers so easily. Victor. What about you? Why even bother using Lovecraft as a starting point or an inspiration? Why not just, you know, create things without having to refer back to him. I guess I would think of you often Think of literature as a kind of an enormous family. Write the books you read. When you're young. The books that influenced you, the artists that influence you. They get into your DNA. They become a part of your sort of lay of thinking and seen the world. And as a result, they influence who you are, in the same way that they were influenced. I would echo Sylvia that Ah Lovecraft didn't invent the genre of cosmic Harbor. They're artists that were inspiring him like Algernon Blackwood, Arthur Machen, whose work is still red. But he added to that genre, and to my mind, the worst thing would be to say. That kind of writing or that genre. It's on ly for white dudes, because when I was growing up, I said, I love this. I knew lots of writers of color lots of women who also loved this and so the idea that we would have to Give up the whole sort of Geography simply because someone who was a big part of it was a problem. I mean, I feel like then you'd have to talk about realism and Herman Melville. You have to talk about almost every single genre, some of the writers who are foundational We're also awful people. And so the question is, Do we give up everything or do we find a way to revitalize it? Regenerated and perhaps making make something good out of some land That was At times a little bit poisoned. A little bit fallow. Let's say it that way. Sylvia wanted to ask you about this summer's Hugo Awards, which honor science fiction and fantasy writing Where Lovecraft got a retroactive award. What? What did you make of the decision to do that? I think all the retro awards are ridiculous..

Moby Dick Chapter Eight

"Welcome back to another episode of Church history. Last week we were talking about the pulpit that Latin Word Putnam, and that object that appears in so many churches. Well, we also find the pulpit, appearing in of all places that great American novel by Herman, Melville none other than moby. Dick Moby Dick has one hundred and thirty five chapters. They have fascinating names like the shark massacre and interesting names, two of the chapters in particular come early in the book that have great names chapter nine is entitled the sermon. Sermon, Chapter Eight is entitled The pulpit so this is Melville's description of a pulpit of a fabled new. England church, it's sort of a conglomerate picture that Melville is putting together. And of course they are about to go out to sea questing after the great white whale, and before they go, all the sailors will show up that. Sunday in church to hear that sermon before they're sent off to see, and they might not come back again well. This is chapter eight on the pulpit. Let's read Melville's description. He tells us how he's sitting there. In the Pew of the Church and Father Maple comes in, and then he starts walking towards the pulpit. Melville says like most old fashioned pulpits. It was a very lofty one and since. Our stairs to such a height would by its long angle with the floor seriously constrict the already small area of the chapel, the architect it seemed had acted upon the hint of Father Maple, and finish the pulpit without a stairs, substituting a perpendicular that is straight up and down side ladder like those used in mounting ship from a boat at sea. The wife of a whaling captain had provided the chapel with a handsome pair of red ropes for this latter. Halting for an instant at the foot of the ladder, and with both hands, grasping the ornamental knobs of those red ropes, Father Maple cast a look upwards, and then with a truly sailor, like, but still reverential dexterity hand over hand, mounted the steps as if ascending the main top of his vessel. Melville continues, nor was the pulpit itself without a trace of the same seat taste that had achieved the latter. It's paneled front was in the likeness of shifts, bluff bows and the holy. Bible rested on a projecting piece of scroll work fashioned after a ship's fiddle headed beak. What could be full of more meaning Melville asks. For the pulpit. Is Ever this Earth's foremost part? All the rest comes in its rear. The pulpit leads the world from thence. It is the storm of God's quick. Wrath is first descried, and the bow must bear the earliest brunt. From thence it is the god of breezes. Fair or foul is I invoked for favourable winds. Yes, yes, the world's a ship on its passage out not a voyage complete, and the pulpit is its prow. Well, that's from the pen of Melville. What a fascinating line he gives us. Did you hear it in that last paragraph I read and the pope it leads the world. Well. That's chapter eight. The pulpit from Melville's great novel. Some have called I. Know Dr Sprawl often called it the great American novel Moby Dick or The whale.

"So this is very powerful it still Rings true today and many ways point that the made here is Wales are enormous truly wage powerful. The smart they can be terribly terribly dangerous. We'll give it a few real life examples of dangerous whales destroying and sinking ships the first example being that of the SX a great ship that was sunk by a sperm whale in fact. It's an incident that flashing popular in history and said to be an inspiration for the novel we're reading right now. First hand Reports say that just before the whale ran into the boat. They had accidentally crashed into three other whales that were in the same pack. It is said that the whale acted in a fit of anger and revenge you'd be the judge on that. Wouldn't hold of some examples in history books and other people the author knows showing us Prime examples of the dangers of sperm whales. What you do with a few descriptive and frightening passages regarding this? There's a melting point of the author being this the maliciousness of these creatures their Incredible strength endurance. Even while being hunted there are examples in history of Wales. Joe's Towing entire great vessels with the lines that were thrown into them. If you have a horse would pull a carriage other significant details such as this are penned here. It is said that if a whale is given time to retaliate it absolutely will and what makes it seem more deliberate is the time in between when the way I was first Struck it lashes out in a blind rage. But sometimes these we have will be struck and down into the deep. They swim with the line from their backs. Only to come back up 15 minutes later and swing the great fluke straight out the boat splintering into pieces. This is highly significant to our understanding of these creatures and the time. we're reminded that even the most marvelous passages in this book or a thing of reality or at least they were Now, he's proper Herman Melville fashion the chapter ends with one last great push to the meeting with some type of logical thinking Melville speaks of an ancient Christian historian called Procol. It tells us that he is by far the most trusted in done exaggerating historian of the ancient Christian century. We're told of an old story that said near Constantinople a great sea monster was captured from the sea of memora after had destroyed many vessels in the area over a period of fifty years. It is not mentioned in this historical collection. What kind of animal or most of this was Herman Melville's inclined to think that there must have been a whale and a sperm whale in his opinion he tells us why it is because of his studies and understandings only sperm whales can and we'll feed and not Mediterranean area. So concludes this chapter that provides a wealth of knowledge food for thought now before we get back into the present action get the witness our first lowering and Hunt which is incredibly exciting. We met with one more chapter called surmises chapter is very short and surmises which devices which means to supposed something is true without any evidence sample consists of Ishmael time with different ideas regarding Ahab in the whale where he presents different hypotheses. He wonders if they have hatred for the whale has spread to all sperm. Whales receives Ahab could take far too much delight not to them. And what about the crew? What about Starbuck? They had must use what tools he has available to him accomplish this dire task. These men of his tools. You have all tools in this world men are the most apps to getting out of order free thinkers. Are we? Hey, how does worry that they will lose some of the tasks and he understands very well how much Starbuck despises his quest so much. So that is too much time passes before they find that whale Starbuck we start a rebellion against the captain. Well, it had to find a way to keep them on the short leash. Keep them focused on his end game. He decides to offer them even more cash. He analytically thinks about his crew and the journey he has growing anxieties of the crew attempting to overthrow him and wrestle the command of the ship from his grasp. Realizes he will have to act as a normal Captain lay low a bit keep the crew in line still though. He commands the crew to keep a constant Lookout in the shout out at any moment. You see anything at all? We're giving a hit that this vigilance will prove worthwhile. Very sooner. This chapter has been self-explanatory. So I greeted with a new chapter called the mapmaker the first time in quite a while we seek wagon Ishmael spending some quality time together. It is a lazy cloudy afternoon to see. Shipmates were lazing about the Dex and gazing out vacantly at the gray Waters this scene freedom from action. It was a dream like afternoon and together Creek wagon Ishmael crafting a woven mat of rope that is called Florida and refused to help with the chasing parts of the ship Ishmael continues pressing on to the reader the dream like state of the scene with all the way over silently daydreaming to themselves. Nobody talking and only the sound of ropes dragging against each other. They smell makes a very cool illusion. He felt as he was crafting some Loom of time disputing the threads of fate. He speaks of waving his threat of Life leaving his own destiny. And this costs back to the main theme of this book that we spoken of quite a lot. Destiny manifestation not sort of things he continues to make some cool visual examples for us. And I wonder where the idea of this team came from what just happened by chance, but it's beautiful. There's no holds the ropes and quickly moves the sword over and under the weave ropes against tough with his indifference. No sword. Sometimes struck crooked sometimes straight sometimes soft. Sometimes hard. You smell like it's a sword strikes to Champs wage. If what they are making is a threat of time and ishmael's input is his lifetime and the random Source strikes of the thread must be the chance of Life are free will so to speak as it will affect the final product the final outcome. It seems incredible passages in reading this book cuz I still find things that I never saw before but I take different angles each month, but I see now that this scene is not without reason Ishmael and queequeg of intertwined their lives along with everyone on this ship within their imprisonment. They still have their free will often but when they clinched their oats and decided to go sailing together there so tied that not a friendship and filled the deal of their faith. Take this passage as you will but in this dream like and thoughtful State they are in there suddenly broken from it by the incredible sound. It's a very striking moment and important for the metaphors as well because the dream like state is broken and Ishmael drops his quote free will unquote or the thread for the ground the sound he describes as wage actually came from far above and the crosstrees he gave us up if he's far above him the gay head long haired idiot. Gosh. She go You still with one arm stretched out far and pointing an intervals continued his war-cry which is described as.

The biggest news worldwide tele telephones and paranormal people around the world went nuts all saying that they saw him. They appeared to him in dreams. He made hundreds of appearances the following year in the paranormal press. He was big after his death and before I wish I had been his agents. One of my very favorite nineteenth century accounts of of death by iceberg was written by none other than Herman Melville who wrote Moby Dick Fame. You know America's greatest see story in eighteen eighty eight. He wrote a poem called the Byrd which is a very beautiful kind of dreamlike. Look at how calm it might be. If the ship had iceberg in the iceberg. Just didn't care which is kind of accurate. That's that's pretty much. What happens is one of the characteristics of ICEBERGS?

"Is the show most excited about. I've been excited in anticipation of it for a long time. The author Steven Wright has been on bookworm twice a four. I love his work and it takes him the Gourd zone time to complete it. I've been waiting for his newest novel which is called processed cheese and which is published by Little Brown. Oh for around seven years and as I read it I wanted it to never be over. I wanted to be reading it forever. I think like Stevens other books. It's made out of sentences and a feeling about the world that's completely his own knowing. No the title processed cheese. Stephen has been with you for a while. I've been wanting to write a book with that title since I can remember so. I finally did the title game before the Book Way. Back when I was sixteen. One of the things my father did was to make cheese board sees pieces of wood which cheese was attached under plastic at first when it started out like most American things they were real genuine supreme vintage cheeses but as things had to be less and less expensive to be made. These cheeses were replaced by process cheeses and the expensive store. The same bloomingdale's that sold the cheese board was replaced by five and ten where you could get. The junk is on the junk board in the junk rapper. And that was what growing up in. America was light during that period that was UAE. May Be we needed the sixties so when. I saw your tunnel processed cheese. It meant so much to me about the end of quality and the beginning of junk in my child he read it exactly the right way. That's terrific now. Tell me this is a book about as one of the first chapter says money money money money money money money. It's about the replacement of everything by the need for money. And more money and under funded coppell find that the husband has been hit by a bad. Were walking down a street. The bag is filled with hundred dollar bills. Which are wrapped in plastic packets? He suddenly got more money than he or his wife. Ambience know what to do with his name is graveyard. Her name is Ambien. Stephen Word of these names come from. I wish I knew they just. I don't know where they came from. The thing is that when they occurred to me it just seemed absolutely right that these were the right names for these people so they stock all of the names of the people in this book are based on industrial processes or Johnke. The city's the places are named things like random Burg this is the world that's died down and been replaced by the equivalent of processed cheese. John Exact has replaced everything. Yeah that is the theme of the book. Yes now the book is so funny. I mean you'll pardon me laugh out loud funny I laugh out loud myself sometimes thinking about phrase or line yes so that's pretty pleasing when he can laugh at your own stuff even years after you wrote it. It's a hung aureus book but a book. That's hilarious about a tragedy of life. That life does not feel like life anymore that life feels like its own version of processed cheese. Yeah exactly how do you live while riding such a book? It's Day by day. You just get through the day like everybody else. You know you get through each day as best you can but. I need to tell my listeners that Steven Wright our guest is the author of five books the first one was called Meditations in Green. It was the first major who Gustav Nation of Vietnam. The second book M Thirty One was a family romance. I pointed out when reading it that it seemed to be based on the nightmare. Gatherings in Faulkner's novel sanctuary. But you don't have to know that it's a Family of people who believe in Outer Space Aliens going native was a book. Oh Stephen I really was barely out of my twenties. I was given this show to do and I asked someone. I think it was an beady. Who SHOULD I meet in New York publishing? Who would help me to know how to go about doing books on my show and she sent me to the man who turns out to have been your life long friend and editor Michael Pietsch. Yes he gave means three chapters of the then unpublished looney tunes novel going native. I say gooney tunes novel because it has on its original edition a big looney tunes series of circles you expect bugs to be poking his head through And I then spoke to Stephen when going native came out the amalgamation Polka imagined that southern scientists were able to change the color of the skin of the people that they wanted to amalgamate. It's a bizarre disturbing novel. That reminds me of Herman. Melville's peer or the ambiguities. Steven Wright did me the favour of teaching me. What the word in that. Some title Pierre or the ambiguities means. Tell US Stephen. The subtitle is Pierre or the ambiguities and it turns out that in the nineteenth century. That was a phrase that was used for someone who lost their mind. He's got the ambiguities. Isn't that amazing? I did not know that 'til I was done with the book. If I had known that I would put it in

"Seven zero four seven zero text in a proposed book title. Anthony Weiner shopping a book as yet we don't know that it has a title. He just shopping around a book that somebody? Hey, I was in jail my experiences all that he shopping that book New York Post gutted today, they they suggested sex lies and videotape among a couple others, and that's pretty good. But I think we can do better. So text your suggestion. And obviously, the Herman Melville one comes to mind that of the white whale. It's the white dolphin some version era of, but if you wanna take a shot at its even crack waffles top ten. Seven zero four seven zero. So that's coming up to have the Biden cut clean lightning that you used any open or the longer version of it. I believe so I gotta go grab it is. Is it just wanna play this relies? I think it's that one. It's how he starts. I've told you this before and I'm just gonna keep telling. But so there's a couple of new polls out by MS just dominating in the latest poll up in New Hampshire. He's like thirty eight to nineteen or something. So he got a big Biden bump and Buddha. Judges back down, but Biden's now is crystal clear, it's Biden's to blow. And if anyone could do it, it would be Biden's. But for now, he's winning big time. And everybody's chasing him. And my advice to Joe Biden is go away. Don't do anything because you can only hurt yourself in. God knows you will with that mouth. And the things that you say so this was yesterday. He's at that union rally in Pennsylvania, and he's doing what Biden does he's just pandering, whatever. But there's there's a couple of tell. With Biden men. I've told you this before where you know. It's like okay roll the I time here's what I mean have to choose hope over fear unity over division. Maybe most importantly truth over lies. Let me say this simply clearly, and I mean, this the country wasn't built by Wall Street, bankers CEO and hutch.

But they're dozens of people who are going to read all weekend long that amazing amazing book such people as Paul to Rica, Sarah Peretz, he's going to be reading blur Thomas, a number of people actors from the Shakespeare project of cargo my colleague Mary was new ski. It's all day just go to Newbury dot org and you'll find Moby Dick redefine I wish. I could. Be there. I was going to be that. I can't be you have in here. Jessica in your book. She could Chicago guy to the word, wonderful and obscure you do have the bughouse square debates. Don't you I do. And I only attended for the first time a couple of years ago, although it had been going to the book fair and the book fairs amazing. It's. You gotta Mark your calendar. Now, usually Judy roughly June around. June or July, and I have been in the book fair I've walked through the park and probably seen people gathered there, but I don't think I knew what was actually going on that day and bizarre. It does look I've hosted it for about the last studs terkel died ten years ago. Hosted an I guess to the passer by would look bizarre. Look, like, some strange protest or something. There are people in costume all time Calcio all kinds of costumes somehow green party in the middle. But it is a great event. And that too is included in your book. You also have another place that is a place of my childhood couch mausoleum, which sits in a very prominent spot between north avenue and was Sal drive on clerk street sort of in front of what's called the Chicago history museum, which I will always call the Chicago historical society. I will tell you that as a child coming over from old town where I grew up from the time we were about I don't know eight until we were about fifteen bunch of us would go over there with hammers and chisels and anything because we thought it was there was treasurer in king Tut's tomb. And I don't know if they've fits the outside of it. But there are dense their marks are hammered drivers. What is that thing? I know but tell the tell the listeners what that is. Well, if anyone doesn't that's a good example. Sorry to interrupt you Jessica. But that's a good. Example of something that people would run by people millions of people I would hazard to say have seen it and a very small percentage of those have ever had the curiosity that you innately have to say what the hell is that? Why the hell is it here? You answer those questions. We'll for anyone who doesn't know there. Our bodies in Lincoln park. Yes. Still a lot of people don't know that it was formerly a cemetery, and they decided to move a lot of the bodies that didn't give them all. So there are still several who are who are there. This was one grave that is visible the only one that's visible that was not moved and a hotel magnet named IRA couches buried there. But nobody knows who else exactly. Liam. Above ground. You can see it says couch on it. But by the time his brother passed away. Nobody knew who was in there. And some of the relatives are buried. I think it's is it Rosehill cemetery. I think you're right. Yeah. And it's the cemetery records don't line up, and none of the family members know exactly who there's a debate over how many people it's like from one to eleven people could be there, and the thing is rested shot. So as you experienced it's just a mystery. Now, it has a little nice little decorative fence around it when I was a kid. It was overgrown with bushes and trees we could easily sneak in and try to try to break down what we needed. Then was a genius engineer might have explained to us how to actually get in the place. You also have you go little not far afield, but you get denials and do the the leaning towers is sort of notable people know of the leaning tower. But for those of you out there who don't what is it? Jessica. Well, yes, there are ninety places in the book. Eight of them are in the suburbs surrounding Chicago. The rest are in the city proper. So the leaning tower of PISA in Niles, what is it doing? It is disguising a water tower. So the gentleman who put it up he needed to water tower for the pools for the nearby YMCA, and he decided to make it pretty will you take good pictures in here to color pictures, are very nice as a section of of the colored pictures in the middle of it the Russia's in black and white. Were there any you? You must have had to at some point call. This was down from you know, the hundred or something. Yeah. What were the ones that were really were there couple that were very very difficult to wind up on the cutting room floor there were and my hope is that I can keep covering all of these that did make it into the book that made either wasn't enough to say and put them on my blog so to keep the story, and I've got a newsletter. So I mean, the Kelly fisheries is one that I love, but it gets a lot of press on the travel channel. One of the things you're up against in. Any do we break at twenty seven or go all the way to the half hour? We're breaking now. Because my my great great new producer, Ernie skeleton is telling me to do.
