An Enemy of the People by Henrik Ibsen (1828 - 1906) . Translated by R. Farquharson Sharp (1864 - 1945).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/an-enemy-of-the-people-by-henrik-ibsen/

Volunteers outside the USA: R. Farquharson Sharp died in 1945. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years.
A small coastal town in Norway is experiencing an economic boom from its newly found hot springs. When Dr. Thomas Stockmann finds that the waters are contaminated and dangerous, the people refuse to accept his statement, and Dr. Stockmann's friends turn against him. (Summary by Libby Gohn)
  1. Is there a deadline?
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.
    Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  2. How to claim a part, and 'how it all works' here

    To find a role to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which role you'd like to read. Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  3. New to recording?

    Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2446 If you are the Narrator or a Citizen, please read from the google documents in the magic window. Your lines have been highlighted.
  5. Please claim roles (the numbers in the first column below)! Please note: All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. When you submit your recording, you will be placing your recording in the public domain as well.

    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Hi Libby

I think that this play should be OK for Australian readers - as the translator died before 1955 it would be in the public domain over here.

Cheers

Hi Liby,
would you please find out if the translater was american or british? If the translation was first published in the US, it is ok for countries who work according to the rule of the shorter turm. If not, than it's not...
The rule of the shorter turm states that, if a work is not under copyright in the country of publication, it is in the public domain in the countries which adhear to it.

Love gothic novels? Try Children Of The Abbey. Interested in legents? Try Legents Of Saints And Sinners. Interested in femenist fiction? Try Falkner.

I couldn't find anything solid. His own books were published by Cornell University, which is in the US, but he could just be publishing through them without actually working there.

I'll MC for you, Libby. I've done Ibsen plays translated by Sharp in the past, and I've always assumed that his work is not PD 70.

Also, I don't know which role you're planning to read yourself, but I'd love to take part. Mrs. Stockmann or Petra would be great - whatever you're not planning on reading. :)

I was going to read whatever's left at the end - so let me know if you have a preference. I'm not doing a gender-specific cast because there's about 5 times as many men as women, and gender-politics isn't really important to this play.

You could knock me down with a feather if he isn't British, with a name like that. ;) He was a prolific contributor to the Dictionary of National Biography, and most of his books were published in London, so I'd say definitely not PD in Death +70 countries.
