Old Aunt Mary’s

James Whitcomb Riley Indiana University Press ePub

WAS N’T it pleasant, O brother mine,

In those old days of the lost sunshine

Of youth—when the Saturday’s chores were through,

And the “Sunday’s wood” in the kitchen, too,

And we went visiting, “me and you,”

Out to Old Aunt Mary’s?

It all comes back so clear to-day!

Though I am as bald as you are gray—

Out by the barn-lot, and down the lane,

We patter along in the dust again,

As light as the tips of the drops of the rain,

Out to Old Aunt Mary’s!

We cross the pasture, and through the wood

Where the old gray snag of the poplar stood,

Where the hammering “red-heads” hopped awry,

And the buzzard “raised” in the “clearing” sky

And lolled and circled, as we went by

Out to Old Aunt Mary’s.

And then in the dust of the road again;

And the teams we met, and the countrymen;

And the long highway, with sunshine spread

As thick as butter on country bread,

Our cares behind, and our hearts ahead

Rider of the Knee, The

James Whitcomb Riley Indiana University Press ePub

KNIGHTLY Rider of the Knee

Of Proud-prancing Unclery!

Gaily mount, and wave the sign

Of that mastery of thine.

Pat thy steed and turn him free,

Knightly Rider of the Knee!

Sit thy charger as a throne—

Lash him with thy laugh alone:

Sting him only with the spur

Of such wit as may occur,

Knightly Rider of the Knee,

In thy shriek of ecstasy.

Would, as now, we might endure,

Twain as one—thou miniature

Ruler, at the rein of me—

Knightly Rider of the Knee!

Curly Locks

James Whitcomb Riley Indiana University Press ePub

CURLY Locks! Curly Locks! wilt thou be mine?

Thou shalt not wash the dishes, nor yet feed the swine,—

But sit on a cushion and sew a fine seam,

And feast upon strawberries, sugar and cream.

Curly Locks! Curly Locks! wilt thou be mine?

The throb of my heart is in every line,

And the pulse of a passion as airy and glad

In its musical beat as the little Prince had!

Thou shalt not wash the dishes, nor yet feed the swine!—

O I’ll dapple thy hands with these kisses of mine

Till the pink of the nail of each finger shall be

As a little pet blush in full blossom for me.

But sit on a cushion and sew a fine seam,

And thou shalt have fabric as fair as a dream,—

The red of my veins, and the white of my love,

And the gold of my joy for the braiding thereof.

And feast upon strawberries, sugar and cream

From a service of silver, with jewels agleam,—

At thy feet will I bide, at thy beck will I rise,

Ship of Fools the Film

Edited by Thomas Austenfeld UNT Press ePub

Ship of Fools the Film

Christine Hait

The present volume celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Katherine Anne Porter’s Ship of Fools by bringing the novel into conversation with the various Ships of Fools that preceded it, including Sebastian Brant’s and Alexander Barclay’s. Another Ship of Fools merits inclusion in this fleet, the Ship of Fools that Porter’s novel inspired: director Stanley Kramer’s 1965 film version of the novel. Porter scholars typically put the novel and Kramer’s film in an exclusive relationship, focusing on the translation of the novel to film and asking questions about the film that lead back to the novel. Understandably, they probe the film for assistance in the ongoing effort to accurately evaluate the novel. Especially when understood in a variety of contexts, the film does help with the evaluation of the novel. The film can be placed in the context of films from 1965 that look back at the rise of Hitler and its aftermath.
