    AUNT PHILIPPA AND THE MEN

    AUNT PHILIPPA AND THE MEN

    In this great short story by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery, a young lady (Ursula) is ordered by her father to place some distance between herself and her suitor for the summer, and she is sent to live with her aunt on the coast. Her Aunt Philippa is a "speaks-her-mind" type of old school aunt, and does her best to discourage Ursula from marrying just anybody. Aunt Philippa is a character and a story you will want to share with your friends- and we hope you do! NOTE: We have a second Lucy Maud Montgomery story called "Christmas at Red Butte" playing starting Wednesday at our new podcast 1001 GREATEST LOVE STORIES that you will also enjoy- in that story a young orphan girl living with her very poor aunt and two cousins in Saskatchawan sacrifices her only possession to make sure her cousins have a Christmas. Your link to subscribe (its free, like all podcast subscriptions) is below. These Canadian authored episodes a thanks to our Canadian reviewers.

    THE ENCHANTED BLUFF by WILLA CATHER

    THE ENCHANTED BLUFF by WILLA CATHER

    The Enchanted Bluff by Willa Cather is a wistful tale narrated by one of 5 Midwestern boys who , as friends, camped out by a river in their high school days and talked about a mysterious mesa that one of the boys had heard of. The narrator recalls the night under the stars and then explains what happened to each of the boys in later life and whether or not their dreams of exploring that bluff were ever fulfilled.

    THE MAN IN THE CASE by ANTON CHEKHOV

    THE MAN IN THE CASE by ANTON CHEKHOV

    Chekhov's 1898 story "The Man In A Case", like many of his stories, was a comment on the social and political atmosphere prevalent in Russia at the time, and for that he was criticized often. This story was the first part of what has become known as "The Little Trilogy", along with "Gooseberries" (coming next week) and "About Love" (now in our archives ). Interestingly enough, a statue of the main character, Belikov, clad in galoshes and carrying an umbrella, stands next to the Chekhov gymnasium in Taganrog, Russia, in Chekhov's honor. Belikov was based upon a real character A.F. Dyakanov, who was the inspector for that city's gymnasium during the years Chekov wrote. He wrote the story while he lived in Paris.

Good story

A really good true Western story. Another good story I remember from childhood. And very well told. So glad I found this podcast a few years back. Always brings me back to childhood at my grandparents. Living in the Hills of Arkansas my grandparents couldn’t always depend on the TV reception. So would read aloud different stories. This was another story grandma wouldn’t let me or my cousins hear. She’d make father censor it somewhat because of our young Christian ears 😇 didn’t need to hear such scary horrors Thank you for the great stories from yesteryear. They are Great.

Wonderful!

I love listening to these on walks, a change of pace from all the depressing podcasts discussing the current state of the world.

rene955 ,

Love it!!!

Who has time to read? I don’t. But I have time at work to listen to short stories. At least one. Sometimes 2 or 3. Very happy I found this!
