Thank you, Leni.

May I make an observation? The title of Section 37 is "Selected Excerpts by James Boswell," but in fact the bulk of the section consists of an essay on Boswell by Charles F. Johnson, and only at the end are there two very brief excerpts from Boswell's works. I think that the listener may find it confusing to hear the essay without any explanation right after being told to expect Boswell's writings.

I don't know if such things are up for discussion, but It seems to me that a section title like "Essay on James Boswell, by Charles F. Johnson, and Selected Excerpts by James Boswell" might make more sense to the listener.

Either that, or change the essay title to "An Essay on James Boswell, by Charles F. Johnson" instead of just "James Boswell, by Charles F. Johnson," to give the listener time to adjust his expectations.

What do you think?

Update: Hmm. I see that other sections have a similar pattern. I guess it's better to be consistent across all sections. Never mind, then! :^)

Uploading Section 45 (Sebastian Brandt: poem extracts) –

https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/worldsbestliterature5_45_various_128kb.mp3
Duration - 27:45

The verse from 1509 was tricky, because of the Great Vowel Shift; but I gave it my best shot.

Regards
Martin
