The Warden by Anthony Trollope (1815 - 1882).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here: https://librivox.org/the-warden-by-anthony-trollope-3/

Quote:
The Warden is the first novel in Anthony Trollope's series known as the "Chronicles of Barsetshire", making fun of the Church of England of his time, together with the religious controversies, and the press. It was his fourth novel. The Warden concerns Mr Septimus Harding, the meek, elderly warden of Hiram's Hospital and precentor of Barchester Cathedral, in the fictional county of Barsetshire.

The story concerns the impact upon Harding and his circle when a zealous young reformer, John Bold, launches a campaign to expose the disparity in the apportionment of the charity's income between its object, the bedesmen, and its officer, Mr Harding. John Bold embarks on this campaign in a spirit of public duty despite his romantic involvement with Eleanor and previously cordial relations with Mr Harding. Bold starts a lawsuit and Mr Harding is advised by the indomitable Dr Grantly, his son-in-law, to stand his ground.Bold attempts to enlist the support of the press and engages the interest of The Jupiter (a newspaper representing The Times) whose editor, Tom Towers, pens editorials supporting reform of the charity, and presenting a portrait of Mr Harding as selfish and derelict in his conduct of his office. This image is taken up by commentators Dr Pessimist Anticant, and Mr Popular Sentiment, who have been seen as caricatures of Thomas Carlyle and Charles Dickens respectively. (Summary from Wikipedia)


  1. Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/619

  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    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!

The information needed is all there.

Are you aware that there are two versions of this in the catalog? It's fine if you want to make a third, but some readers prefer to record something that hasn't already been done. :)

Thanks for drawing my attention to the other versions; I was aware of them when I decided to record the book.

I have a dedicated Proof listener - Arlene.

Nick,
I'd be happy to MC this for you. I'll get things set up.
MaryAnn

Update: MW is ready. I've changed the file name to add ""128kb", otherwise everything looked good.

Nick,

You don't need to enter any metadata on the files before you submit them. That is now taken care of during the cataloging process based on the info in the MW.

I shall be a day or two before I can record the second chapter - my voice has tightened up and I need it to clear!

With best wishes

Nick

Chapter 1 is PL OK.

It's very interesting for these ignorant American ears to hear the correct pronunciations of those English place-names! Hope your voice is better soon.

Nick,

How did I ever miss the comic side of Dr. Grantly when I read this book to myself? Thanks for the great characters, again!

Glad you are feeling better. Chapter 2 is PL OK.

A cup of tea, a beautiful sunset, and a new chapter of one of my favorite authors read by one of my favorite readers. Now that's my idea of a relaxing Friday treat after a busy week!

Chapter 3 has been marked PL OK.
