Re: SOLO Coniston Tales by W. G. Collingwood ~ans

Thanks, Anne. I also had to add an extra section, but I think everything is fine now.

I have recorded Part 3 and adjusted and re-uploaded everything from Part 3 up to the end.

Re: SOLO Coniston Tales by W. G. Collingwood ~ans

Yes, it all makes sense! Thank you for spotting that. There are two things. First, maybe for Anne, there is no introductory section for this project, so we should start at 01? Second, I have missed a section out. I am not sure, but I looks like I skipped reading it. It is the Great Circle, which sho...

Re: SOLO Coniston Tales by W. G. Collingwood ~ans

Perfect timing! Ruskin's birthday was a few days ago, and it'll be fun hearing this brought to life. This has been on my to-do list for seven years (!) since I finished his Thorstein of the Mere, which is still one of my favourites - it should have been in the Newcastle series! https://librivox.org...

I wasn't sure about this one, I thought 'gi-' as in 'giselle', not as in 'give'. I have never heard this and couldn't find guidance online, but as it is French...?

Re: [SOLO] Jaufry the Knight by JB Mary-Lafon-ans

If you decide to launch Bambaatse, just post here so I know. Yes, I will, but it will be a while before I have files to post. Meanwhile, I have put up another short Lake District read and taken the liberty of nominating you as DPL again. Hope that's okay? Let me know if I posting too much! https://...

Re: [SOLO] Jaufry the Knight by JB Mary-Lafon-ans

Here we go with the last few chapters, ready for PL! I don't get what the hawk and the crane story in Chapter 10 is about. Makes me think that this book was full of symbolism that I completely missed! https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/jaufry_09_lafon.mp3 - 16:34 https://librivox.org/uploads/annise...

Re: [SOLO] Jaufry the Knight by JB Mary-Lafon-ans

I had my doubts when the preface said that the prose retained as much of the poetry as possible, but the translator is doing a pretty good job. That's right! It's a strange style of writing. If you look at it, it looks like prose, but as soon as you start reading aloud it turns into blank verse! My...

Re: [SOLO] Jaufry the Knight by JB Mary-Lafon-ans

Thanks Erin! It will probably be next week before I can do the corrections, so I'm uploading four more chapters - also with a couple of PL notes-to-self that I can't correct right now. https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/jaufry_04_lafon.mp3 https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/jaufry_05_lafon.mp3 htt...
