365 Poems: Five things late for Friday.

3. From Brainpickings: In this recording from 1947, remastered in 1992, found in T.S. Eliot reads T.S. Eliot, the author himself reads the utterly delightful first poem of the collection, “The Naming of Cats,” which brings to mind its modern-day prose counterpart, Lost Cat.


4. We marked the date on Nov. 26: On this day in 1922, British archaeologists Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon (of the 'real' Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle) were the first to enter King Tut’s tomb in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings. The excavation yielded thousands of cultural objects and the most fascinating was a stone sarcophagus containing three coffins and the mummified body of teenage King Tut.
