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.

"The last thirty minutes of Batmans live where he's like. I was trying our editorial everybody's like we didn't buy the subscription that was I had. I had used my five articles. Ugh sorry why did we waste all the time? In that movie with that broach when we could have been following this guy's exploits as he ran around the and of course when this famous spiritualist went down on the Titanic. 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? The iceberg has a very good crunch zone. It's like a Prius. It just doesn't care that much and normally it's just John and me speaking on this show and we know that gets tiring I mean. I have to think how hard it is for us to listen to each other talk. It must be hard for you to read this poem. We'd brought a special friend of ours. One of our favorite people..
Stephen Wright on 'Processed Cheese'
"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

It was sort of like a great white whale for me because our English teacher. Mr. Duncan was a really smart wonderful teacher and he'd loved that book. And he wanted us to get something. When important out of that book. I just wanted to get an A, and I figured that. It was going to be challenging because I knew his expectations of what people were getting out of the book where we're going to be so high so this there was just a lot of anxiety about what is this book about it? And what am I supposed to be able to pair it back? I'm not proud of this. I think compared to have a good friend Bill home. So I visited this week, and he also went to pill hill, he was there to learn, you know, when I told him that I had trouble with Moby, Dick. He he looked at me appalled. And I I know what he did. So anyway, this is sort of a confession about my relationship to now with a book by Herman Melville end. I'm gonna put it on my list of books read pretty soon, a dive back into Moby Dick on its own terms. And I'm sure it will be a rewarding reading project have a couple of comments share with you before we close. I. Dean prosser. He was writing about my conversation last week with Michael c Grumbly. Actually, both comments about that interview. Dean wrote this was a great interview for the first time I had read the author's books before you interviewed him. His humility is interesting one more reason to like his books. Thank you. For your podcast. Dean, I had that same impression listening to the interview with Michael I think we're driving down from ocean park early in an I and I found that very moving in the context of how potion that book was made possible by kindle direct publishing in the wholesale publishing movement, and it's a good book. And and it's a book, that's obviously touched people's lives and to hear the humility with which he has embraced the reaction to that book. I did find that removing as well from Dan Campbell enjoyed the interview with Michael Gramley, you asked all the right questions. I will give his book a try as an aside. I thought Mr. gremlin voice.

A number of public statements made by Whitaker including saying there's no criminal obstruction of Justice charge to be had against President Trump that seems president prejudicial too many. He was a former US attorney, which is probably something. He does actually have to remind people about him a loss because he doesn't like a US Tony so much as he looks like Ken more refrigerator that somehow escaped from a ceus. Hello and welcome to Trump cast. I'm Virginia Heffernan. So whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth whenever it's a damp, drizzly, November in my soul whenever requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from knocking people's hats off. Then I accounted high time to see some indictments from the office of the special counsel, Robert Muller. Okay. So I'm no Herman Melville. But I do have the enthusiasm for indictments of Trump's circle that Ishmail had for willing ships. There were rumors of indictments last week. When Trump saw Democrats cleanup at the midterms Nedeli fired. His nutty AG Jeff Sessions who recused himself from the Russian investigation and hired it true escapee from happy firms sub literate dirty. Judge Matthew Whitaker who couldn't find the law on a map and thinks the bible should serve as the US constitution as hopefully future. Governor of Florida. Andrew Gillam said Trump. Seems nervous. Indeed, he has no shield from house oversight now that the Democrats control that chamber. So he's hoping to shield himself from Muller, which is well don't fool with the office of the special counsel. It's like mother nature that way and Trump is right to be nervous. So we'd heard indictments were coming maybe related to that Trump Tower meeting, if it's what you say we love it sent American citizens, but no indictments last week, and none this week so far, but hope springs eternal sooner or later will be back in that sweet heavenly retreat from reality my castle on a document cloud.
