Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Thanks for that. Section 29 uploaded. My family are part of the Office of National Statistics study so get regular free Covid swabbing. This means I'm one of the few who can say they are as well as can be expected. I'm also doing the Couch to 5K thing so hoping I'm getting healthier. Hope you're doi...

Section 28 uploaded. There's a gloriously rude bit.

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Section 27 uploaded. The Gutenberg text has several mistakes, especially in the last paragraph (or it did when I downloaded it). lieen should read been. "towards me, scarcely" should read "towards me, seeming scarcely" and there is a parenthesis starting "have not (to give ourself" and ending By you...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Section 26 uploaded. I'm pretty sure Proust never used the word 'floccinaucinihilipilification'. I love the Kindle feature that you can touch a word and the definition will come up. I just checked what an 'alienist' is (psychiatrist). Translators tend to be frustratingly long lived so I more often f...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Corrected Section 24 uploaded and new Section 25. When I was studying Latin at the University of Kent at Canterbury in the late '80s I did an essay on the different treatments of Odysseus/Ulysses through literature. I wish I still had a copy. In Homer's 'Odyssey' Polyphemus the Cyclops has been blin...

Section 24 uploaded.

On the subject of exotic words, I once used the word floccinaucinihilipilification in context in a university essay!

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Corrected Sections 22 and 23 re-uploaded. I'm building up quite a set of words I've always mispronounced! I do have a 705 page biography of Breton called Revolution in the Mind. However it's hardback, so too heavy to lug around easily. If I do get round to reading it I'll probably buy it on Kindle. ...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Sections 22 and 23 uploaded, which brings Part 1 to a close. Section 23 seems like a self-contained chapter about the grandmother's illness. It seems a strange friendship - Breton found male homosexuality so disgusting he refused to discuss it and he booted famous names (Dali, Ernst) out of the Surr...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Corrected Section 20 and new Section 21 uploaded. Just read that Andre Breton, the future leader of the Surrealists, proof read the first volume of The Guermantes Way. Despite hating gay men and being a Marxist, he liked it and Proust got on with him, nominating him for an award. (Proust and Joyce d...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Sections 17 and 18 uploaded with corrections. I must revise the pronunciations of vestige and requisite! The paragraph in which M de Guermantes asks for a sponge cake should be there - I checked the French as well as the translation. Project Gutenberg has quite a few transcription errors and this is...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Sections 15, 16, 17 and 18 uploaded. I'm torn between wanting my recordings flawless and accepting that I'm an amateur. I may come back to those problem sections later but I'm pressing on for the time being. I listened to the first episode of the Jacobi Proust. It was very good but I have so many po...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Sections 5, 6, 10 and 11 corrected and reuploaded. I don't know when I switched from a Logitech to a Marantz microphone but I've tried both for the pronunciation problems and neither sound like the rest of the recording so I think I'll just have to accept patina and sidereal being wrong. Even Stephe...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Section 3 reuploaded with corrected line at 0.57-1.09. Saki was part of a collaborative work and I completed all my sections for it. I still have the short story Gabriel-Ernest on my bucket list to record, once Proust is done or I need a break. One day I will do it! Ostensibly it's about a teen were...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

All files resubmitted with a second of silence at the beginning. Section tags for Sections 2-9 changed to 02-09 for consistency. I love Proust's rhythms too and, fortunately, I think Proust's pace suits my own. I love Saki's short stories and thought my voice would work well and that I would love re...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

I'm not sure if I amplified Section 14 so I may need to re-upload that one. But there's no hurry. This project is going to take a while.
