フロイト  A General Introduction to Psychoanalysis, Chapter 1 (1/2)

Whimsical Friday

A General Introduction to Psychoanalysis by Siegmund Freud, Chapter 1 (1/2)

I bet you didn't see this coming! It's called Whimsical Friday for a reason, you know.
This is a fascinating book, though I have only recorded Chaper 1 so far. More from this book might be forthcoming, but I can't make any promises...

Continuing with the American theme, I'm podcasting a recording of Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson (unabridged). It is a series of short stories that are only loosely connected, and each story can perfectly stand on its own. I kind of like Anderson's oblique writing. He is said to have influenced many American writers, including Hemmingway. I hope you'll enjoy this series.

This concludes the podcast of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Thanks for listening.
For the next few weeks, I plan on podcasting Silver Blaze from The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. I have only recorded a couple of episodes from this book, and frankly some of the episodes in this book are less interesting than those in The Adventures... I plan on cherry-picking a few stories from this book before moving on to something altogether different.

R. L. スティーブンソン Treasure Island, Chapter 1

Weekend Theater 2

Treasure Island
By Robert Louis Stephenson
Chapter 1

Starting today, I'm podcasting Treasure Island by R. L. Stevenson. Many of you must think you know the story well, but if you are Japanese (as most of my listeners are), chances are you haven't read it in the original. If you expect a childish adventure story written in childish English, you'd be in for a big surprise. The story may be a bit too conveniently contrived at times, but the language is far from easy. Nevertheless, I find the story quite enjoyable despite having been written more than a century ago.

The podcast will be presented in 34 installments or so.

Note: The melody of the pirates' song I used in this podcast was taken from a certain Japanese TV puppet show (not Treasure Island) aired long enough ago on NHK, so there is no fear of copyright infringement. I wonder if any of you could recognize the song?
