I've updated the part 1 reading (On the Knocking at the Gate in Macbeth) with the repositioned footnote and with (I hope) accurate ID3 tags. The original link posted some pages back will download this new version, but I'll go ahead and post the link here as well: http://www.rgrove.com/miscellaneouse...

I apologize for my long absence, but I've had major computer issues that have only recently been resolved. I've got a rough version of the opening essay for this project and will edit it to something presentable in the next two or three days. Should have it posted for review by the end of the week. ...

sorry to hear that. Traveling while sick is the pits. I'll hold the fort, but in the event of an attack I won't be much good. I'm an artist, you know, not a soldier. :lol:

I'm not so sure you should cut any of the footnotes. Part of the fun of DeQuincey's wriiting (and other authors of the time) was to comment on a topic ironically in the footnotes. This is a style that is actually used today in some books (House of Leaves, Lanark). If we are to read the content aloud...

The problem with footnotes is that unless they are read in context, how is the reader to remember what the footnote is associated with? While it's not a great solution, I'm for indicating a footnote in the sentence or word it is applied to. The person reading aloud will just have to find a way to ma...

FYI, I've completed recording of the "On the Knocking at the Gate, in Macbeth" and am in the process of editing the recording. I hope to have it up in a week or so.

If I have the time, I'll see about signing up for a later essay, or at least a chunk of one.

:D

Hello Ticktockman (BTW, Harlequin says, "Hello), an obvious method of divison would be to create a part one, part two, etc., and then be sure to divide them at logical points in the essay (i.e. not in the middle of an idea, but at the end of it). While not exactly what the author intended, it does k...

Hello,

I'll sign up for the "On the Knocking at the Gate in Macbeth". I can have the recording for you at the end of next week. Will be sure to follow guidelines. I've recorded before, so I have some idea of how it all works.

thanks,

ricky

Thanks for the follow up. I missed that mis-spelling. I hope they'll make the correction since that link is the only mention of who actually created and produced the audio. I think I understand why they stripped the disclaimer (I wouldn't if it were my site), but they do need to have correct links. :D

Librivox Reading at "Talking History" Site

I was cruising around on the net this evening looking for information about microphones and audio equipment, when I came across a site that listed several "oral history" websites. As is often the case, I abandoned my equipment search and tried out several of the sites listed. The "Talking History" w...

You're welcom, rayner. Let me know if anything needs to be re-done.

BTW, I'd like to read a chapter for each part. My penultimate scene is Prince Andrews death scene near the end of the book. Can't remember what chapter that is though.

:)
