On the Sublime by Longinus. Translated by H. L. Havell ( - 0)

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/on-the-sublime-by-andrew-lang/


Quote:
This is a classical text on aesthetics and proper style in writing and rhetoric, including commentary on various ancient Greek works such as those of Plato, Homer, and Demosthenes. Authorship of this treatise is disputed/unknown, but the text is traditionally attributed to Longinus or Pseudo-Longinus. (summary by Amelia Chesley, adapted from Wikipedia)



  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/17957
  • 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!

I finally forced myself to choose a text for a solo project. my fellow rhetoric scholars nudged me toward this one-- hopefully it keeps me interested!

All set up.
It looks as if this is your first project as a BC/soloist. If you have any questions, just ask, but if you've read the wiki I think you'll find it straightforward. I assume you already have had access to Magic Windows in your capacity as a proof listener?
Talking of which, do you have a DPL set up, or do you need to advertise for one?
Lynne

thank you Lynne! yes, I have had MW access before as prooflistener. I'm still diving in to the soloist instructions, etc. but I should be able to figure stuff out (I hope).

I don't have a DPL lined up for this yet, so advertising for one would probably be a good idea. do I go ahead and post in Listeners Wanted, or is that an MC thing?

To start with, we just add the tilde (~) to the title and hang out on the launch pad for a couple of days to see if anyone comes along. When you've got a couple of sections recorded (or more...), you can advertise in Listeners Wanted - the only thing is that only an MC can add a 'sticky' (and make it sit at the top of the forum rather than work its way down as newer posts come along, and thereby get lost). If you do a post, any MC may add the sticky when they are looking at that forum (or you can just ask me).

Moved to Going Solo. When you have a couple of sections recorded, you can advertise for a DPL.

okay!

I am struggling a bit to figure out the best way to group and divide the sections, but I'll hopefully record at least the frontmatter stuff within a week or two.

Take your time - it's your solo, your schedule 8-) Just be sure to check in every month or so, so I know you haven't given up :lol:

I think I've figured out my section divisions at last, and I combined more than I estimated I would. all the blank/extra section lines can be deleted whenever you get a chance. (or if that's something I can do in my BC back-end, let me know... I wasn't sure...)

I'm not sure if you get to see the little 'x' on the right hand side of each line in the compiler, but I have deleted the sections for you. They are easy enough to add back in if necessary (just select 'add section').
