Books Unbound – Elizabeth Stoddard and the 1860s, Part Seven: ‘Two Men’ Chapters 10–14

Play

Two Men, the second novel by Elizabeth Stoddard (1823–1902), is a family saga published in 1865, in the immediate aftermath of the Civil War, but is set before the war. In this episode, a visit from Philippa’s attractive college friend reveals Parke as a ladies’ man, and prompts other family members to recognize their own desires. The theme of race relations gets an emphatic introduction, and listeners are advised of offensive racial characterizations and language.

Two Menis read by Shayne Laughter. Stoddard’s letters are read throughout the series by Sarah Torbeck. A review that came out in Boston soon after the publication of Two Men is read in an abridged version by Frank Buczolich.

Heather Perry hosts, with announcer Jack Hanek. The episode was produced, written, and edited by Cynthia Wolfe, with assistance from Heather Perry, Sarah Torbeck, and Jack Hanek.

Special music for Two Mencomes from the album MacDowell: Second Modern Suite / Étude de Concert / Twelve Études(Naxos, 1999), performed by James Barbagallo (1952–1996). The American composer Edward MacDowell, born in 1860, wrote these works for piano in the 1880s, around the time Two Men was reissued.

Voices in the Street – Bloomington’s Flag: A Thought Experiment

Play

We’re taking a bit of a departure this week on Voices and coming at you with a brain storming session. Bloomington has the good fortune of being populated with lots of folks proud to be here—whether they’re true townies, townies by choice, or just here for school or another temporary stay. We thought it would be interesting to hear what your friends and neighbors would say if they were charged with designing a city flag. So Bloomington, what scene scapes would you create if you were charged with this task?

Books Unbound – Elizabeth Stoddard and the 1860s, Part Six: ‘Two Men’ Chapters 6-9

Play

Two Men, the second novel by Elizabeth Stoddard (1823–1902), was published in 1865, in the immediate aftermath of the Civil War, but is set before the war. Reviews were either mixed, recognizing the originality of her talent but faulting her preoccupations and technique, or hostile to the point of irrationality: Stoddard’s worst critics—all male—found it difficult to accept her undermining of illusions about the home as a tranquil haven, and her harshly realistic depiction of family tensions.

In this episode, the two Parke family heirs of the younger generation have come home from college, and family dynamics are further complicated by their emerging adulthood.

Two Men is read by Shayne Laughter. Stoddard’s letters are read throughout the series by Sarah Torbeck.

Heather Perry hosts, with announcer Jack Hanek. The episode was produced, written, and edited by Cynthia Wolfe, with assistance from Heather Perry, Sarah Torbeck, and Jack Hanek.

Special music for Two Men comes from the album MacDowell: Second Modern Suite / Étude de Concert / Twelve Études (Naxos, 1999), performed by James Barbagallo (1952–1996). The American composer Edward MacDowell, born in 1860, wrote these works for piano in the 1880s, around the time Two Men was reissued.
