Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Here we go with an Italian Institution - the Camorra!

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/shortstories4_12_gaskell.mp3

I've renumbered and created space for the French songs in the MW.

Yes, we do have that edition of the collected works in the library. I'll take a look next time I'm there...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Sections 5 and 6 are spot PL OK. Those changes do make sense - the sort of thing that might have been picked up when it was published later in book form (although I haven't compared it against any other scans on IA). Great! I want to read accurately from ATYR as far as possible, but not to the poin...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Section 5 & 6 corrected and uploaded. On Section 5, in addition to change below, I have corrected what I think are two typos in the original text. I forgot to ask your opinion earlier. Would you mind taking a look and letting me know if you think I am misunderstanding. In both cases, it seems to me ...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

That's interesting, as is JSTOR Daily, which I haven't seen before. You've reminded me that I spent time looking up sources on the picturesque, including these two by William Gilpin, which double up as a guide to the Lakes. https://archive.org/details/cu31924104095207/page/n37/mode/1up https://archi...

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/shortstories4_05_gaskell.mp3 - 54:12 Part Two of the Ghost in the Garden Room ready for PL! Interested to know what you make of it. If you are looking for where to start on the PL, here's a link. It's toward the bottom of the first column on p. 40. https://babel.h...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Thanks for the link to the Gaskell Society special issues - I do have access to download and I'm looking forward to reading a couple of the papers - the introductory one as well as the one on Lois and the Grey Woman. The Ghost in the Garden Room is another great story, but I think I prefer it as the...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/shortstories4_05_gaskell.mp3 - 64:50 Ready for PL! Just a note on the organization of this one. It comes to two hours and a bit and there are no breaks, so I have broken into two files rather arbitrarily. Actually, I've tried to introduce a bit of a cliffhanger, b...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

You can't go wrong with Yorkshire. I'm looking forward to hearing it! I've just finished recording the Ghost in the Garden Room this evening (later published as 'The Crooked Branch'). It would be interesting to know more about Mrs. G's relationship with ATYR. I mentioned the length of these pieces ...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Have you seen that John Rylands have digitised some manuscripts, including Gaskell's, and including The Grey Woman? https://rylandscollections.com/2021/02/08/placeholder-gaskell-and-dickens-mdc-launch/ I hadn't seen that. That would be a challenge - reading from the original handwritten manuscript!...

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Parts 2 and 3 of the Gray Woman corrected and ready for spot PL. A great story but I'm glad to see the back of those French and German accents! I'm reading the Ghost in the Garden Room now - back in Yorkshire - just my cup of tea!

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Thanks for the notes, and here is the final portion... There are a few bumps and scrapes in this file, so please tell me if they are intrusive. Although I fear that the corrections will sound worse than the mistakes. https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/shortstories4_09_gaskell.mp3 - 54:36 Yes, Amant...

Here we go! Portion the second ready for PL! https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/shortstories4_08_gaskell.mp3 - 54:23 I'm afraid this is a bit of a raggedy recording with quite a few clunky edits and probably more to come. I hope there is some enthusiasm in my voice to make up for it. If you remembe...

Thanks! Portion the first corrected and ready for spot PL! Portion the second will be not too far behind. Exciting isn't it? We are about to enter the world of the 'chaufffeurs' - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chauffeur_(criminal)

Re: [SOLO] Short Stories 1859-63 by Elizabeth Gaskell - ans

Lois the Witch Part the Third, I and II, are spot PL OK. I'm so glad you've done this. It really is one of Gaskell's strongest short works, and it will given listeners a whole new appreciation of what she could do beyond her two most famous novels. Mary Barton and Cranford? Or North and South? I di...
