A serial reading from Herman Melville's ' Moby Dick ', by Geoffrey Tandy
The Pequod is still on her way to the whaling grounds proper, although the boats have already been lowered once-but with no success.
The most thrilling thing about this lowering is the appearance (as it were from nowhere) of a boat's crew that the ship's company had never seen before. But they are all dusky men and they man the boat before the Captain himself, an unusual thing in the whale fishery-but then. with Ahab's monomania for hunting Moby Dick , this is an unusual voyage.
In this instalment the Pequod falls in with the whaleman, Town Ho /, which is homeward bound, and they hear her story.

Petite histoire littéraire de
Paul Morand from Paris
Paul Morand , Conseiller d'Ambassade, homme de lettres, knows this country well, and can be counted among its best French friends. He was educated at Oxford, and served in the French Embassy in London from 1913 to 1916. In 1920, while still in the Diplomatic Service, he turned to writing and has since published many travel books-more than one about England.
This evening he will discuss the influence that each country has had on the other's literature over the last three centuries.
