Episode 27: Mary Shelley- Lodore and Frankenstein; or, a Modern Prometheus

This episode is filled with SPOILERS, since we give specifics throughout our discussion.

Melissa Selzer and I cover a LOT in this episode- not only do we talk about two of Mary Shelley’s works (Frankenstein and Lodore), we also talk about the history of Gothic Literature, our personal experiences with reading Frankenstein when we were younger, who Mary Shelley was, and how different Frankenstein the novel is from the film versions of the story.

Episode 25: Devorah Major- Trade Winds

This episode is filled with SPOILERS, since we give specifics throughout our discussion.

Melissa Selzer and I both thoroughly enjoyed Devorah Major’s short story, Trade Winds. The idea of home and being able to translate that idea to someone with a different context to the word really struck a chord with us.

Here is a link to videos of her performing her work: https://www.devorahmajor.com/?page_id=12

Our next book will actually be two: a comparative study between Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus and her penultimate book, Lodore (which I pronounce Lo-door-eh, but may just be Lo-Door).

We both absolutely adored this book. I personally cannot recommend this book enough.

Episode 21: Magdalena Mouján Otaño- We and Our Own

Melissa Selzer and I talked about We and Our Own by one of histories most incredible women, Magdalena Mouján Otaño.

The poem, of the same name, written by her grandfather, that inspired this short story is here:

Zer da Euskera, nor da euskaldunak,
Zeiñ, will Nongotarrak say?
Galdezka daude atzerritarrak
Ontara Begira,
mundu gustyan bere berdiñik
Ez Duben Euskal will miss.
Eziñ ikusi gaituste ondo,
irten gautezen argira,
iñork mantxarik sortu ez dezan
Gure Jatorri Garbira.

– Pedro Mari Otaño
