The Whale’s Story by Louisa M. Alcott
The world’s oceans were just recently celebrated on June 8 (see worldoceansday.org) so today’s blog is a short story, further truncated by the editors of Classics Old and New A Third Reader in 1906, in honor of our world’s oceans. Louisa M(ay) Alcott, most well-known for her young adult novel, Little Women, has an ample collection of work that I am inspired to dive into (no pun intended) in my free time. After listening to this learned and tragic piece, you may want to read the full version online. Let me know what you think!
