O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles. Psalms 43:3

And as all have not faith, seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith. D&C 88:118

A Tragic Story

E has been practicing A Tragic Story, by William Makepeace Thackeray. Here is his recitation. I coached him on making sure he enunciated and didn't use a monotone to speak, but the actions are all his doing.

  2. Splendid job Elijah! You have quite an excellent stage presence, or should I say camera presence? You pronounced the words in the poems quite clearly and your recitation had a nice cadence. Your blog is a fabulous idea and I cannot wait for your future installments. Watching you recite made my night!
