Deathly Experiment

STEP 1: SELECTING THE TEXT


I have chosen to do my project based on the poem, Trainor the Druggist by Edgar Lee Masters from The Spoon River Anthology. This poem stood out to me. I  was intrigued by its mystery and darkness. I was excited to attempt to turn it into my own story. James Jennings is  the modern, Trainor, the Druggist.. This was my first time writing a script but I really tried. :)

Trainor, the Druggist

ONLY the chemist can tell, and not always the chemist,

What will result from compounding

Fluids or solids.

And who can tell

How men and women will interact

On each other, or what children will result?

There were Benjamin Pantier and his wife,

Good in themselves, but evil toward each other;

He oxygen, she hydrogen,

Their son, a devastating fire.

I Trainor, the druggist, a miser of chemicals,

Killed while making an experiment,

Lived unwedded.
