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

No problem at all. I've downloaded section 14, but I just wanted to check in and let you know I probably won't get going until the weekend.

Re: group [ENGLISH] After Long Silence by William Butler Yeats

Hi! First person to reply, so that's a start! You're right, it is pretty quiet round here. However, there are some Yeats enthusiasts out there, and I'm hoping a one-off late-career poem will prove tempting. I could be wrong of course, but it might also be the case that some members simply don't stop...

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

I'm posting to say that I'm willing to be DPL. I'm leaving later in the week on trip for work, but I should start properly PLing once I've returned.

Re: group [ENGLISH] After Long Silence by William Butler Yeats

A note for the MC: this is an experiment in much the same vein as the weekly and fortnightly poetry projects on LV. I don't know how many readers will fancy recording a version of the poem, but it's worth trying! I've slightly tweaked the info on the tags and intro/outro - please let me know if I ne...

Hi Viktor,

I like it! When I saw your message I wasn't sure what to expect, but I think you're being hard on yourself. It looks really good - thank you very much for creating it!

Re: PD in 2019

I would like to point out that The Great Gatsby is PD in Europe or countries with life + 70, while it is not in the US. Therefore librivox won't do it, but you can :) Hello Michaelwy, There's some good news! Martin Reyto has already recorded The Great Gatsby, so you can start listening this weekend...

No rush! I appreciate your efforts, because we'd be here all year if it were down to me to come up with a cover.

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Green Grey Homestead by Steele Rudd - hok

Hi Anna, I didn't make a note of the pronunciations - I don't think they're really a big deal, but I hope it helps for future things! Chapters 19 and 20 are PL OK, so the book is finished - well done! I'm going to be really annoying and mention a typo in the new summary in your post - in the first l...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Green Grey Homestead by Steele Rudd - hok

Chapter 17 is PL OK! I have one small note on pronunciation. This is a classic example of a homograph - 'bow' is spelled identically but the pronunciation varies depending on the meaning. If you take a deep bow, it rhymes with wow. It's definition 2 here: https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Green Grey Homestead by Steele Rudd - hok

Chapter 16 is PL OK. A couple of pronunciation notes just because it's so much fun... 'Tear' has two different pronunciations, just to be confusing. In the first definition, if you look at the listings under the subheading 'verb', number 2 has the definition and example sentences, and that definitio...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Green Grey Homestead by Steele Rudd - hok

Chapter 14 is PL OK.

Pronunciations - don't I know it! I have some howlers on record that I know how to avoid in future, but one thing that recording has done is make me second guess the pronunciation of absolutely everything. I'm sure I know it, and yet, maybe, just maybe, I don't...

Re: [ENGLISH] A Full Moon in March - W. B. Yeats - vik

Fantastic, thanks! I realise it isn't always possible to give everybody credit, but it's nice when that does happen. What do you think to this photo of Yeats from roughly the same time he was writing this book? (The photographer died in 1942, so the copyright ought to be okay.) If it would be tricky...

Hi Anna! Section 12 is PL OK. It's good to pick up these adventures setting up a homestead again! I'll get to 13 shortly. I have one small note - it doesn't affect the meaning, but perhaps it might be useful for future reference. It's the pronunciation of cove (see the second definition): https://en...

Re: [ENGLISH] A Full Moon in March - W. B. Yeats - vik

Fabulous! If, and only if, there is room for a third PL, would it be possible to add Phil's name? He checked my editing of the dramas. If not, not to worry, as having two credits for PLing is still a decided improvement over LV! There isn't (yet) an online text. I definitely don't have a cover! And ...
