Otherworld: Cadences by F. S. Flint (1885 - 1960).


English author Frank Stuart Flint was a prominent poet in the Imagist movement, along with Ezra Pound and T E. Hulme. Flint abandoned school at the age of 13 to pursue rigorous self-study, eventually mastering 10 languages, including French and Latin, while working at various jobs. At 17, he took up poetry, inspired by the writing of Keats. He published the first of his three books of poetry, (In the Net of the Stars) when he was 24. This early work channels Keats and Shelley in its love lyrics. This, his third and last book of poetry, reflects the influence of innovative French poetry, the Imagist movement and the his friendship with Ezra Pound. At age 35, following the death of his wife, he ceased poetry altogether, but continued writing the authoritative translations of French works for which he is also well-known. ( Nemo)

    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!

Looks like I miscounted Amy, and only need 39 sections, not 40.

Could you delete that last one please?

Thanks!

sect 2
PL OK :9:

You both were great. You complement each other perfectly.
As for the poem, I listened to it twice. It's not a simple piece, peeling away a man.

Thank you Helen!

We were hoping you would appreciate that one. He has some powerful pieces in this book.

Also, we both appreciate what a treasure you are as a DPL for LVox.
