I was prolific and listened to both sections in one go. I loved the mention of Poe's Raven in section 15 :9: Maybe I should listen to that poem in the Russian translation once.

Section 14 already PL ok.

One small (probably optional) note for section 15:

> at 5:37: (p. 108) "нельзя набирать и слов?" – you say "слова" – not sure if it's very important (well you make it a nominative instead of a genitive :hmm: ) and anyway I promised to point out everything and let you decide

have a nice weekend

Thank you!
There are a couple of Ravens in Rus. translations in LV:
http://www.archive.org/download/raven_multilingual_0903/raven_18_balmont_b.mp3 -- the aforementioned Balmont's translation
http://www.archive.org/download/multilingual_shorts_008_1306/msw008_06_voron_poe_kk.mp3 -- different translation performed by your humble servant :-)

Thank you for pointing this out. That was an obvious typo, I just corrected it on the fly :-)
Your attention to details is amazing! (I probably said that already) :clap:

ok so this can be marked PL ok :)
Федор Сологуб, author of the gothic love story you first PL'd for me, is here:

ah the one with the mourning bride ? Yes that was a good text. I also loved the snippets of poetry here, it wasn't even too difficult vocabulary, I understood many things :9:

Section 16 is PL ok. Enough for today though, it's late now.

good night

another section in the box :clap: this time I only found one small textual error:

> at 3:14: (p. 122) "Дивные и мудрые книги" – you say "длинные" - a bit of a different meaning, so you may want to correct it, but I let you decide, as always

the rest was perfect

...and Брюсов I:

and finished this one as well, a lot about poetry and rhyme schemes. Now I need a rest.

Found a few things to correct this time:

> checker flags the volume this time, under 86 dB. Maybe amplify it a little bit, some 2 or 3 dB, to get closer to the desired average

> at 0:13: "Валерий Брюсов" – didn't you usually also put "Part 1" or something there ? I may remember incorrectly though :hmm:

> at 10:48: (p. 131) repeat can be cut: "и не заглушал он вольной" – also a snapping after that

> at 22:25: (p. 134) "Как все это тяжело, грузно, трудно" – I may be mistaken but I hear "нудно" at the end

thanks, very interesting again ! And I'm caught up for one. :9:

Thank you, Sonia!
"Валерий Брюсов" – didn't you usually also put "Part 1" or something there ?
For multi-part essays I say продолжение or окончание (continuation or ending), but nothing for the 1st section. That's a standard for serialized stories in Russian periodicals.
The rest of your feedback for sec.17,18 are gratefully accepted and fixed!
Did you notice how YA does not pull any punches on Briusov? The irony is, I started a book of Briusov's translations of Verlaine, and I actually like them both! :D viewtopic.php?f=28&t=80234
