Description

This piece is another which blurs the diving line between the catch and its more sophisticated cousin, the glee. In telling the story of the hapless man, desperately seeking the midwife of the title to help his wife deliver their child, who mistakenly chooses to ask directions from two villagers whose dullness of wit is beautifully matched by their spectacular speech defects, the narrative which emerges is a carefully-controlled scena in which the entry of the voices build the story to its inescapable conclusion: frustration prevails.
