Farewell Love! A Novel by Matilde Serao (1856 - 1927). Translated by Mrs. Henry Harland ( - 0)


This tragic love story begins by meeting the passionate Anna Acquaviva who is willing to leave her position in society to elope with her lover after her guardian Cesare Dias will not give his consent to the marriage. Things do not turn out quite like she expected, and Anna is left to deal with the fact that she did what “respectable girls don’t do”. Will Anna find true love after heartache or will she be forced say farewell to love forever? ( Jenn Broda)

    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!

MW coming up.

edit: I would mention the translator only in the first intro and at the end of the book. Also, the book is divided into Parts (I and II), these also could be mention only in the first intro and last outro. For example, in the outro of the Chapter 7, say "end of chapter 7 and end of part 1." In the next intro say "Part 2, Chapter 1"). Again, like the translator's name, the part number doesn't have to be mentioned in every intro and outro. Hope this makes sense.

Let me know if any changes are needed.

Thank you!

Yes, that makes sense. I did put Part 1/Part 2 in every section of the MW so when the book is catalogued it will visually be there for the listener.

Also, some of the chapters are quite long. I think I calculated the longest being about 50 minutes. Will it be alright to not break them up? If I recall, the max section length is 70 minutes.

You can, of course, give the part # in every intro/outro. It's your decision. And yes, the maximum file length is about 70m. Some readers though prefer to record sections that are no longer than 20-30m. Again, it's your decision.

Will add him once he agrees.

edit: I removed the ~ for now. Also, I'm trying to decide whether we should cap the L in the word love in the title.

I’m good with making it capital. I looked at several copies on archive all with a capital L and in fact there isn’t a comma. Wonder why the copy I linked has a comma and lowercase in the name :hmm:

It is strange. The comma would be a direct address comma, but then 'Love' would be used as a proper noun and would be capitalized. But that's kind of a fussy view on my part.

Kevin added as DPL. I'm inclined to ditch the comma and cap the L but we have until cataloging to decide.

edit: Gutenberg has a copy of this which might be easier to read.

Oh yes that is easier to read, thank you!

I say we go with what Gutenberg has as the title: Farewell Love! A Novel
