Re: Group - D H Lawrence - short stories-neb/vik

Ruth

I'm not sure if it's a sin to listen before publication on legamus, but I sampled some of your story. Your voice is more beautiful than ever; up there with Dame Janet Baker in the quiet passages of Mahler songs.

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Hi

Section 20 is PL OK except for an unedited repeat of the name at 22:53 - the French text has this as "M. Molé", although my Kindle download had left off the accent in the translation.

Best regards

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Hi Section 19 is all PL OK, except for a pronunciation detail, which you have asked me to note where appropriate. You have started in this section to award Mme de Villeparisis an extra syllable (a final i ). Like Charlus and other quasi-Latin or Italianate old family names (e.g. de Médici s ), it's ...

Hi

Uploading Section 12 (STRIKE-PAY). My word, that was difficult. Interesting to hear again the East Midland "Sorry" - the dialect survival of the Shakespearean "Sirrah."

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Hi

Now marked PL OK.

The only name which has made me positively wince so far was a couple of sections back when you took the final s from the Baron de Charlus. Definitely a hissing sound is called for when he returns - Sharr-L/i ɡʁɛk/ SS.

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Hi There are 3 unedited repeats in Section 18: @36:01 The sentence: "But this time she must have reckoned ... as though to a grown-up person." Repeated in entirety from 36:21. @41:58 "Oh well, you know ... condescension." Repeated to correct final word quoted. @43:20 from "Yes, I made a mistake on p...

Re: Group - D H Lawrence - short stories-neb

Hi Kristin The dialogue is mostly in the dialect of the Nottinghamshire-Derbyshire border. I lived in that area in the 1970s. Please take a listen to this YouTube video of local people reading from a text by an author from D H Lawrence's own home village. I hope this gives you some useful guidance w...

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Two edits are needed -

At 1:31 you read "crusts" for "crests";

and at 7:06 you began the sentence from "At Combray..." and then restarted it at 7:16 - so need to remove the aborted passage 7:06 through to 7:16.

Otherwise fine.

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Excellently done. I love the Balbec parts. I was a lad growing up in Llandudno when I first read Proust and their respective Grand Hotels coalesced in my imagination.

All PL OK

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Hi

Section 15 PL OK. Some marvellous writing in this.

Sometimes I feel: "I know exactly what he is feeling there..." - but then I wonder if I would know how to "feel" it if Proust had not taught me how to feel in the course of my earlier readings of the novel.

Best regards

Hi

Section 13 - PL all OK. I got so mesmerised trying to imagine the complexities of Odette's togs that I nearly forgot to alight from the train at Guildford.

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Hi

The English translation preserves the Proustian headings (Place-Names: The Name, etc) as the main titles of the work's constituent parts, so I agree that these are the real divisions.

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Hi

All's PL OK. I could really appreciate from your reading the sadness and self-delusion in Marcel's rejection of Gilberte.

All the best
