Visions and Revisions by John Cowper Powys (1872 - 1963).

Volunteers outside the USA: Author died in 1963. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years and Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955).
Powys presents a set of literary devotions of great figures in Literature who have obsessed him. He attempts not so much a reasoned critique or any attempt to categorise these figures but rather, as he describes in the Preface: "to give [himself] up, absolutely and completely, to the various visions and temperaments of these great dead artists." Powys delivered popular lectures throughout the United States and was able to hold audiences in rapt attention for hours while speaking about great literature and writers, this book from the earlier part of his writing career gives us a little glimpse into what those lectures must have been like.

  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/26933
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi Keri,
I will MC this for you.
Do you have a proof listener lined up? If not I will keep you on the launchpad for another day.
Cheers!

Many Thanks Amy,

No I didn't have any lined up. Do people need any particular experience to be proof listeners? I might ask a friend who has done some reading and covers before for librivox.

Hi Keri,
No experience is needed. Here is the place to find out all about it. It is the Prooflistening Template and FAQ.

Hi Grant,
I assume Keri will be happy to have you as DPL. I am going to sign you up and move this to Going Solo.
Thanks!

Hi Keri and Grant,
In case you haven't use the Magic Window before, I sent you a private message with how to obtain access to it and how to update it.
Cheers,
Amy

Not sure who should update the magik window when a reader has posted a new file. I've had a go, putting
https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/visions_01_powys_128kb.mp3
in the Listen URL field, The Title from the text's contents in the MW title and changing the status to ready for PL.
Please excuse me if this is wrong.

That first reading was great. I've changed the status to PL OK and added the duration to the notes column.

Thanks Grant,

I hadn't had time to look at it, so thanks for doing that, first section done. It feels like we're making progress. Let me know if you want to keep doing that otherwise i'm happy to do so.

Reading is the big job so I'll take on all that I can to lighten the load but I'm also generally happy to keep doing it. I'm not fully confident that I'm doing it correctly but it seems OK and if anything is wrong I'm sure it can be fixed.
