Re: [DRAM.READ/ENGLISH] Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri-len

Please can I claim:
Plutus
Cavalcante dei Cavalcanti
Vanni Fucci
Forese Donati
Justinian
and St Peter?
It would mean I read a voice in all three Cantos 24 and have some other interesting ones.

Re: What made you choose your nickname?

My LibriVox user name is self-explanatory. My name is Andrew and I am English. I wanted to make it easy to know my gender and regional accent. My Legamus.eu user name is Tuberous Chairs. When I was reading Tacitus' Histories for LibriVox, the text should have read "Under Tiberius, Gaius, and Claudiu...

Re: Paul's Preface to Romans PD?

Yes, I think the Short Non-Fiction Collection is the best place. I still want the kudos of recording a solo for LibriVox but that will have to wait until I have time for something longer.

Thank you for all your help and advice, Ruth.

Re: Paul's Preface to Romans PD?

That is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you.

I guess I had best record it then. Is it too short for a solo - should it go in a collection? I estimate it will be about 40 minutes long.

Re: Paul's Preface to Romans PD?

Thank you very much for checking, Ruth. It would be nice to find a translation that was public domain.

Paul's Preface to Romans PD?

This is a link to a translation of Paul's Preface to Romans that claims it's public domain but there are no details of translator or publication date. Is it public domain? (I live in UK so it would need to be life + 70 for me to record) http://www.google.com.gi/url?sa=t&rct=j&q&esrc=s&source=web&cd=...

Re: Article: Sherlock Holmes - PD ruling (US)

In the UK, the country of the author, all of Doyle's Holmes stories are public domain, as they are in almost every other country. This means non-US citizens can record the post 1923 stories for legamus.eu, as RuthieG is currently doing with The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes.

Re: My Secret Life

We have already recorded at least one Classical text which, by modern standards, would be considered as advocating child abuse. I think there may also be ones describing what Tiberius got up to on Capri.

Re: Audio books at the local library

Mike001 - I don't think West Sussex do this but East Sussex do (as do Hampshire and Surrey and lots of others), although West Sussex offer digital audiobooks for £2.40 for 3 weeks. If you live in West Sussex ask in your library. Authors get a small amount paid to them for the loan of their books und...

Re: Dante

I would not recommend Cary's translation unless you are undertaking an academic study into the influence of Dante on the Romantic poets. "The Dante Encyclopedia" says Cary "cast the Commedia into large Miltonic verse paragraphs of unrhymed verse in the lexicon of English poetry, obscuring the tercet...

Re: Do PLer's receive credit in the catalogue? Should they?

I've tried (unsuccessfully so far) to persuade my wife to record. She is tempted to read but does not want to edit. Fine, I've offered, you record and I'll edit. Then it struck me. I would be doing a lot of work and wouldn't be receiving any credit for it. Then it struck me again - yes, I would. I w...
