Recitations: "The Wanderer" and "The Seafarer"

As you can see from the various recitations I'll be posting over the next couple of days, my students didn't do so well on actually memorizing their recitations, and they were probably less likely to go from memory on YouTube where everyone can see it.

Let me just remind all those people following along with the class (my best guess is that there are about 30 of you still active), that you are invited to do recitations and post them.
