App users can hear a poem from Thomas Nashe, a lyric selection from his comedy, Summer’s Last Will and Testament, first published in 1592, during a time when the plague was still flaring up in hot spots from time to time around Europe.
Thank you to Annie, from the Join us in France Podcast, who helped with the pronunciations of the French names and phrases for this week’s episode. If you’re interested in France at all, you should check out her show. It’s fantastic.
So here’s the story so far:
Andre-Louis, a privileged lawyer from Gavrillac, is on a mission to speak out for the downtrodden, especially the poor who have fewer rights than the nobles. After speaking out in Rennes and later at Nantes, he is on the run from the law, who wish to take him to task for his harsh words. As he’s hiding in a barn, he happens upon some traveling players. He joins their band as a carpenter and laborer.
And now, Scaramouche, Part 4 of 12, by Raphael Sabatini
