The Ohio State University Quarterly free pdf Excerpt from The Ohio State University Quarterly (As the curtain rises, Mrs. Fullsam is seated at a working table which is littered with hooks and papers. She is writing, and looks up from her work to read a selection from Browning. The sound of a struggle, the thud of boxing-gloves, is heard faintly from without.) Mrs. Fullsam - (Reading.)"Glad was I when I reached the other bank, Now for a better country. Vain presage!Who were the strugglers, what war did they wage, Whose savage tramples thus could pad the dankSoil to a plash? Toads in a poisoned tank, Or wild-cats in a red-hot iron cage..." Ah, dear, delightful Browning. So strong, so simple, so virile. I love that touch about the toads in a poisoned tank. And the wild-cats in a red-hot iron cage. What could be simpler, more dramatic? And yet some people persist in the delusion that Browning is obscure. (The noise increases without- there is a shout of "Bully for you. Hector, bully for you!") Oh, what a pandemonium Wellington is creating! How am I ever to accomplish anything in the face of this constant disturbance? Company coming, a paper before the Spartan Dames, another Saturday before the Mothers Club- Monday the K. K. C.'s, and Tuesday - (The noise outside increases- there is a sound of a fall, and a shout of triumph.) Oh, horrors! This is terrible. (She goes toward the door.) I don't dare to look. I expect any moment that the dear man will be brought to me prone on a stretcher. Hector is so quick tempered, and Wellington, oh, he's so intrepid, so daring. He simply doesn't know the meaning of the word Fear. At any rate, he doesn't know the derivation of it. (The noise approaches.) Heavens, they are coming in here! Wellington hacks in, fighting- he hits Hector, who follows him in wildly.) Wellington - Ha! How's that for a cross-counter? (Mrs. F. Screams faintly.) Come, come, Hector, my boy, don't be a quitter. Buck up! Buck up! (Hector gets in a blow on Wellington, which the latter returns.) Mrs. F. Stop! I can't let you endanger your life in this manner. I can't! I won't have it! (The men cease fighting gradually, both breathing hard. Hector's eye is discolored. Pleased by his wife's alarm, Wellington feints at Hector, then takes off the gloves reluctantly, and hands them to him.) Well. - Here, take these, Hector, my boy. And now do your mile turn, and wind up with the dumb-bells, a cold plunge and a rub-down. Hector - (Sullenly) How about that wood pile you told me to work up, Mr. Fullsam? Well. - (Grandly) Oh, that is business. This is your pleasure, your recreation. See how I've built him up, Sophia. He was a rail- a shadow (Hector is furious) when I took him in hand. Mrs. F. - Yes, yes, I know, but - Well. - Come, come, whats all this fuss about! Don't worry about me, my dear. Whats life without a little risk, a little danger? You wouldn't have your old husband a molly-coddle, would you? (Turning to the table.) What! Still grubbing away at these musty old books!
