Some Verses by Theodore Wratislaw (1871 - 1933).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/some-verses-by-theodore-wratislaw/

Theodore Wratislaw was a fin de siècle poet and a less famous Decadent author than some of his contemporaries.

This short collection of verse was first published in 1892.
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=hvd.hnp7qt;view=1up;seq=9
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): wordperfect



    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!

Note for a prospective MC: I've modified the intros and outros so that a full disclaimer is used on the first and final sections. For the others, I'll use the short poetry intros/outros.

Hi Pam,

The first three are ready for PL. Believe me, they're not all this short!

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/someverses_01_wratislaw_128kb.mp3 (1.29)
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/someverses_02_wratislaw_128kb.mp3 (0.49)
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/someverses_03_wratislaw_128kb.mp3 (0.58)

The first one starts here:
https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=hvd.hnp7qt;view=1up;seq=15;size=150

I don't know if you've used Hathitrust much, but it can take some getting used to. Give me a shout and I will gladly help if I can.

Hi Erin,

Sections 4-7 are PL OK.

Section 12 in the epigram I hear "sont" instead of "chante"

My best,

Hi Pam,

More for PL, and they start here:

https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=hvd.hnp7qt;view=1up;seq=25

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/someverses_08_wratislaw_128kb.mp3 (1.11)
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/someverses_09_wratislaw_128kb.mp3 (0.56)
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/someverses_10_wratislaw_128kb.mp3 (0.29)
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/someverses_11_wratislaw_128kb.mp3 (1.04)

And the revamped 12, with the patch at 0.17-0.21:
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/someverses_12_wratislaw_128kb.mp3 (7.06)
If I've still missed the mark on this one, just say. I feel like I've only just started this collection, so doing pick-ups and taking a few more days won't hurt it.

As this is getting close to cataloguing, I would like to add the following summary and keywords please:


Theodore Wratislaw was a fin de siècle poet and a less famous Decadent author than some of his contemporaries.

This short collection of verse was first published in 1892.


Keywords: Decadence, Victorian

You should be able to edit the summary yourself (use the pencil at the top for the edit function) but I will add it to the project page and also the keywords. (FYI, the summary in the first post is the one that gets used in the catalog; the one on the project page gets used on Archive 8-) )
Help us finish:

I thought I could alter it, too, but when I tried that on my last solo I did something - I still don't know what - that I shouldn't have. I was under the impression that all changes to the first post, such as any changes to the summary or keywords, had to be flagged for the MC, because those changes weren't automatically applied 'behind the scenes', so to speak, and wouldn't automatically appear when the project was completed.

I'm really sorry to ask a silly question, but what are the differences between the summaries in the catalog and on the project page on the Internet Archive? Feel free to answer in words of one syllable and short sentences!
