Marius the Epicurean, Volume 2 by Walter Pater (1839 - 1894).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/marius-the-epicurean-volume-2-by-walter-pater/
The conclusion of Pater's historico-philosophical novel about a young Roman nobleman's search for purpose and meaning. Set in the time of Caesar Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, the book traces its title character's encounters with the stoicism of Aurelius, Eastern philosophical and religious movements, and Christianity as they reacted with Marius's own innate Epicureanism.

In exploring these issues, Pater focuses on themes of adult development, as he notes the impact of Marius's childhood experiences as they inform his adult thinking; the value of the aesthetic life (a favorite idea of Pater's); and the appeal of religion.

In addition, the work is stylistically distinct for its attempt to use classical historical and philosophical texts
to support and enrich a fictional narrative.

    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!

Hey Phillip -

Section 1 is PL OK!

Just one question - I noticed there are foot notes but you are reading over them. I could also not find the reference to the footnotes anywhere (other than 2 at the end of the chapter 15 which did not make sense as there were way more footnotes in the text than that). I presume that is why you are reading past the footnotes?

Many Thanks, Lynda for your PL.

To answer your question about footnotes, I will be reading them when they add meaning to the text. In the context of this chapter, the two foonotes concerned the two Greek phrases which were already explained in the text, so they would have been redundant. (I have another edition of this work in my library in hard copy...which doesn't contain any foonotes, but it is not PD so I am not reading from it). As far as I can see, in this edition the footnotes are always at the end of the chapter (so far).
