decline and fall (In Our Time)
 
42:07
David Bradshaw, John Bowen and Ann Pasternak Slater join Melvyn Bragg to discuss Evelyn Waugh's comic novel Decline and Fall. Set partly in a substandard boys' public school, the novel is a vivid, often riotous portrait of 1920s Britain. Its themes, including modernity, religion and fashionable society, came to dominate Waugh's later fiction, but its savage wit and economy of style were entirely new. Published when Waugh was 24, the book was immediately celebrated for its vicious satire and biting humour. With: David Bradshaw Professor of English Literature at Worcester College, Oxford John Bowen Professor of Nineteenth-Century Literature at the University of York Ann Pasternak Slater Senior Research Fellow at St Anne's College, Oxford.

Shipwrecked and cast adrift, Lemuel Gulliver wakes to find himself on Lilliput, an island inhabited by little people, whose height makes their quarrels over fashion and fame seem ridiculous. His subsequent encounters - with the crude giants of Brobdingnag, the philosophical Houyhnhnms and the brutish Yahoos - give Gulliver new, bitter insights into human behaviour. Swift's savage satire view mankind in a distorted hall of mirrors as a diminished, magnified and finally bestial species, presenting us with an uncompromising reflection of ourselves. 1:23:45 -Part 2 2:44:00 -Part3 4:09:51 -Part 4 Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7733.Gulliver_s_Travels

The text is on-screen so you can read along with me, furthermore the reading of Howards End by E.M.Forster comes with subtitles . I have a received pronunciation British English Accent. Howards End by E.M.Forster - English Reading British English Pronunciation. Edward Morgan Forster Howards End by E. M. Forster Chapter 1 One may as well begin with Helen's letters to her sister. Howards End, Tuesday. Dearest Meg, It isn't going to be what we expected. It is old and little, and altogether delightful--red brick. We can scarcely pack in as it is, and the dear knows what will happen when Paul (younger son) arrives tomorrow. From hall you go right or left into dining-room or drawing-room. Hall itself is practically a room. You open another door in it, and there are the stairs going up in a sort of tunnel to the first-floor. Three bedrooms in a row there, and three attics in a row above. That isn't all the house really, but it's all that one notices--nine windows as you look up from the front garden. Then there's a very big wych-elm--to the left as you look up--leaning a little over the house, and standing on the boundary between the garden and meadow. I quite love that tree already. Also ordinary elms, oaks--no nastier than ordinary oaks--pear-trees, apple-trees, and a vine. No silver birches, though. However, I must get on to my host and hostess. I only wanted to show that it isn't the least what we expected. Why did we settle that their house would be all gables and wiggles, and their garden all gamboge-coloured paths? I believe simply because we associate them with expensive hotels--Mrs. Wilcox trailing in beautiful dresses down long corridors, Mr. Wilcox bullying porters, etc. We females are that unjust. I shall be back Saturday; will let you know train later. They are as angry as I am that you did not come too; really Tibby is too tiresome, he starts a new mortal disease every month. How could he have got hay fever in London? and even if he could, it seems hard that you should give up a visit to hear a schoolboy sneeze. Tell him that Charles Wilcox (the son who is here) has hay fever too, but he's brave, and gets quite cross when we inquire after it. Men like the Wilcoxes would do Tibby a power of good. But you won't agree, and I'd better change the subject. This long letter is because I'm writing before breakfast. Oh, the beautiful vine leaves! The house is covered with a vine. I looked out earlier, and Mrs. Wilcox was already in the garden. She evidently loves it. No wonder she sometimes looks tired. She was watching the large red poppies come out. Then she walked off the lawn to the meadow, whose corner to the right I can just see. Trail, trail, went her long dress over the sopping grass, and she came back with her hands full of the hay that was cut yesterday--I suppose for rabbits or something, as she kept on smelling it. The air here is delicious. Later on I heard the noise of croquet balls, and looked out again, and it was Charles Wilcox practising; they are keen on all games. Presently he started sneezing and had to stop. Then I hear more clicketing, and it is Mr. Wilcox practising, and then, 'a-tissue, a-tissue': he has to stop too. Then Evie comes out, and does some calisthenic exercises on a machine that is tacked on to a greengage-tree--they put everything to use--and then she says 'a-tissue,' and in she goes. And finally Mrs. Wilcox reappears, trail, trail, still smelling hay and looking at the flowers. I inflict all this on you because once you said that life is sometimes life and sometimes only a drama, and one must learn to distinguish t'other from which, and up to now I have always put that down as 'Meg's clever nonsense.' But this morning, it really does seem not life but a play, and it did amuse me enormously to watch the W's. Now Mrs. Wilcox has come in. I am going to wear [omission]. Last night Mrs. Wilcox wore an [omission], and Evie [omission]. So it isn't exactly a go-as-you-please place, and if you shut your eyes it still seems the wiggly hotel that we expected. Not if you open them. The dog-roses are too sweet. There is a great hedge of them over the lawn--magnificently tall, so that they fall down in garlands, and nice and thin at the bottom, so that you can see ducks through it and a cow. These belong to the farm, which is the only house near us. There goes the breakfast gong. Much love. Modified love to Tibby. Love to Aunt Juley; how good of her to come and keep you company, but what a bore. Burn this. Will write again Thursday.

DUBLINERS by James Joyce - FULL Audio Book | Greatest Audio Books
 
06:40:13
DUBLINERS by James Joyce - FULL Audio Book | Greatest Audio Books - Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. They form a naturalistic depiction of Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century. The stories were written when Irish nationalism was at its peak and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They centre on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character experiences self-understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses. The initial stories in the collection are narrated by child protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence, and maturity.

A counter-terror operation, codenamed Wildlife, is being mounted in Britain's most precious colony. Its purpose: to capture and abduct a high-value jihadist arms-buyer. Its authors: an ambitious Foreign Office Minister, and a private defence contractor who is also his close friend. So delicate is the operation that even the Minister's private secretary, Toby Bell, is not cleared for it. Suspecting a disastrous conspiracy, Toby attempts to forestall it, but is promptly posted overseas. Three years on, summoned by Sir Christopher Probyn, retired British diplomat, to his decaying Cornish manor house, and closely watched by Probyn's daughter Emily, Toby must choose between his conscience and his duty to the Service. If the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing, how can he keep silent? Read A DELICATE TRUTH: http://po.st/ReadADelicateTruth

Leslie Hutchinson sings Cole Porter - I'm A Gigolo, 1929
 
02:59
Leslie Hutchinson -- I'm A Gigolo, From "Wake Up And Dream" (Cole Porter), Parlophone 1929 (UK) NOTE: Arthur Julien Hutchinson (nickname: Leslie "Hutch" Hutchinson) was born 1900 in Gouyave, a small fishing village on the island of Grenada. His parents saved hard to send him to the best local school and he became a child prodigy at the piano.When he was 16, his parents sent him to a medical school in the US, but instead of studying he headed straight for Harlem, where he married a black Anglo-Chinese girl, Ella Byrd, and soon fathered a daughter. When his father cut off his allowance, for a while Hutch was destitute, but soon his piano music as well as fascinating good looks impressed one of New York's first families, the Vanderbilts, who introduced him to influential patrons of the jazz scene. Having made his name as a pianist alongside other jazz legends such as Fats Waller and Duke Ellington, in 1924 he arrived in Paris, where he was involved in a long-lasting relationship with Cole Porter. That gay love affair had not restrained the handsome West Indian from involvement into more customary relationships with the movie stars Tallulah Bankhead or Merle Oberon. In revenge, Cole Porter had portrayed Hutch in a song "I'm a Gigolo", which he included into his extravaganza London's revue of 1929 "Wake Up And Dream"(it was sung in the show by Jack Buchanan). In 1927, Hutchinson travelled to London where his social patron and a sexual partner became idol of London's high society, actor Ivor Novello. With him, he entered the heremetic social circles of Mayfair, Knightsbridge or West End and became one of the most desired jazz babies of the London's nightlife scene in the Roaring Twenties Jessie Matthews, who heard Hutch singing to his own piano-playing in the orchestra pit one night, urged him to become a solo stage performer. Within a year, he had won recording contracts and had become a highly paid headliner at top London nightspots: the Cafe de Paris or the Cafe Anglais. He bought a Rolls-Royce, a grand house in Hampstead and, dressed by best London's tailors, he could boast of friendly terms with the Prince of Wales. But he was still a black man, so when he entertained at lavish Mayfair parties, his fee was enormous, but he was asked to go in by the servants' entrance. Famous English writer Evelyn Waugh satirised Hutch as the social-climbing upstart, Chokey, in his novel "Decline And Fall". The big scandal surrounded Hutch in 1930s, when he established the intimate relationship with lady Edwina Mountbatten - the vivacious, enormously rich, sexual adventuress of the highest social rank. Edwina showered costly keepsakes on Hutch: a jewelled gold cigarette case, a gold ring with her coat of arms engraved on the inside and a diamond watch. But also Hutch was made to pay a heavy price for the affair: Buckingham Palace refused to have him on any Royal Command Performance bill and Lord Beaverbrook gave orders that Hutch's name was never to be mentioned by any of his papers. During WWII Hutch was one of the first stars to volunteer his services to entertain the UK Forces, but he never received formal recognition for that and his name would never appear in any Honours list. In revenge, in early 1950s. Hutch added two members of the Royal Family to the list of his conquests: the Queen's aunt, Princess Marina and Princess Margaret, with whom Hutch enjoyed a brief liaison when she was 25 and he was 55. Yet, in the beginning of the next decade it was clear, the Hutch's heyday was over. The advent of the Beatles meant to him closure of most of his avenues of employment. In local theatres, where he used to entertain hundreds, he now played to a handful of people. Often, he wouldn't despise performing in end-of-the-pier shows where he was hardly ever billed. Drinking heavily, overweight, with six children from different mothers, he was like a gargoyle of the once-beautiful black God who had conquered high society with his voice and charm. Living in a tiny flat, he sometimes attempted to cadge money from his teenage son. In Aug. 1969 he died of pneumonia at the Royal Free Hospital, Hampstead. Only several mourners showed up at his funeral.

Sir Terry Pratchett - Shaking Hands with Death (2010). Assisted Suicide / Euthanasia
 
47:55
One of the world's most popular authors gives the 34th Richard Dimbleby Lecture from the Royal College of Physicians in London. Sir Terry Pratchett announced in 2007 that he had been diagnosed with a rare form of early-onset Alzheimer's disease.

SUMMARY ======= Myanmar (English pronunciation below; Burmese: [mjəmà]), officially the Republic of the Union of Myanmar and also known as Burma, is a country in Southeast Asia. Myanmar is bordered by India and Bangladesh to its west, Thailand and Laos to its east and China to its north and northeast. To its south, about one third of Myanmar's total perimeter of 5,876 km (3,651 mi) forms an uninterrupted coastline of 1,930 km (1,200 mi) along the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea. The country's 2014 census counted the population to be 51 million people. As of 2017, the population is about 54 million. Myanmar is 676,578 square kilometres (261,228 square miles) in size. Its capital city is Naypyidaw, and its largest city and former capital is Yangon (Rangoon). Myanmar has been a member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) since 1997. Early civilisations in Myanmar included the Tibeto-Burman-speaking Pyu city-states in Upper Burma and the Mon kingdoms in Lower Burma. In the 9th century, the Bamar people entered the upper Irrawaddy valley and, following the establishment of the Pagan Kingdom in the 1050s, the Burmese language, culture and Theravada Buddhism slowly became dominant in the country. The Pagan Kingdom fell due to the Mongol invasions and several warring states emerged. In the 16th century, reunified by the Taungoo dynasty, the country was for a brief period the largest empire in the history of Mainland Southeast Asia. The early 19th century Konbaung dynasty ruled over an area that included modern Myanmar and briefly controlled Manipur and Assam as well. The British took over the administration of Myanmar after three Anglo-Burmese Wars in the 19th century and the country became a British colony. Myanmar was granted independence in 1948, as a democratic nation. Following a coup d'état in 1962, it became a military dictatorship under the Burma Socialist Programme Party. For most of its independent years, the sovereign state has been engrossed in rampant ethnic strife and its myriad ethnic groups have been involved in one of the world's longest-running ongoing civil wars. During this time, the United Nations and several other organisations have reported consistent and systematic human rights violations in the country. In 2011, the military junta was officially dissolved following a 2010 general election, and a nominally civilian government was installed. This, along with the release of Aung San Suu Kyi and political prisoners, has improved the country's human rights record and foreign relations, and has led to the easing of trade and other economic sanctions. There is, however, continuing criticism of the government's treatment of ethnic minorities, its response to the ethnic insurgency, and religious clashes. In the landmark 2015 election, Aung San Suu Kyi's party won a majority in both houses. However, the Burmese military remains a powerful force in politics. Myanmar is a country rich in jade and gems, oil, natural gas and other mineral resources. In 2013, its GDP (nominal) stood at US$56.7 billion and its GDP (PPP) at US$221.5 billion. The income gap in Myanmar is among the widest in the world, as a large proportion of the economy is controlled by supporters of the former military government. As of 2016, Myanmar ranks 145 out of 188 countries in human development, according to the Human Development Index.

Sword of Honor Audiobook | Evelyn Waugh
 
03:37
Get this audiobook title in full for free: http://cwan.us/h/154154 Narrated by Simon Prebble Duration 24 hours 39 minutes This trilogy spanning World War II, based in part on Evelyn Waugh's own experiences as an army officer, is the author's surpassing achievement as a novelist. Its central character is Guy Crouchback, head of an ancient but decayed Catholic family, who at first discovers new purpose in the challenge to defend Christian values against Nazi barbarism, but then gradually finds the complexities and cruelties of war overwhelming. Though often somber, Sword of Honor is also a brilliant comedy, peopled by the fantastic figures so familiar from Waugh's early satires. The deepest pleasures these novels afford come from observing a great satiric writer employ his gifts with extraordinary subtlety, delicacy, and human feeling, for purposes that are ultimately anything but satiric. Sword of Honor comprises the three acclaimed novels Men at Arms, Officers and Gentlemen, and Unconditional Surrender. Attn: Author/Narrator If you have any queries please contact me at info19782 @ gmail.com. I will reply as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours. Thanks in advance
