This recording is complete and can now be accessed on the LibriVox catalogue: http://librivox.org/die-leiden-des-jungen-werthers-by-johann-wolfgang-von-goethe/.

One of the most famous works of Goethe. As I am generally preferring the original language of the author (and it takes my much longer to record in English apart from my accent) I will provide it in German. Here are some informations:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sorrows_of_Young_Werther
and here is the book (consisting of two parts):
http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/2407
http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/2408

Eines der bedeutensten Werke von Goethe. Da ich generell immer die Originalsprache des Autors bevorzuge (und es mich mehr Zeit kostet, etwas in Englisch aufzunehmen - abgesehen von meinem deutschen Akzent im Englischen) werde ich es in Deutsch zur Verf?gung stellen. Hier sind einige Informationen ?ber das Buch:

Die B?cher (Werther besteht aus zwei Teilen) k?nnen hier gefunden werden:

That's nice, Rainer. You seem to be unstoppable - going rate of several recordings a day! :)

But, Gesine, this will take a little bit longer (it's a whole book). But I dedicate my whole spare time on recording it. Therefore, I'm sorry, no fairy tales for you (or at least not many) in the next time...

It's great that you have been doing so many fairy tales... thanks for recording so much (of anything!). A book will obviously take longer... but take your time! And please, please, do something else with your spare time as well... :)

"Die Leiden des jungen Werther" beschreibt die ungl?ckliche Liebe von einem jungen Mann (Werther) zu einer verlobten, sp?ter verheirateten Frau. Der Roman ist aus einer radikal subjectiven Perspektive geschrieben: er besteht nur aus Briefe von Werther vor allem an einen Freund namens Wilhelm. Erst im letzten Teil des zweiten Buches tritt ein Erz?hler hinzu. Der Roman besteht aus zwei B?chern, die aber eher als zwei Teile des Romans anzusehen sind.
Hier ist zun?chst mal das erste Buch (also der erste Teil). Die Briefe sind (f?r angemessene Dateigr??en) in Monate zusammengefa?t und reichen vom Mai bis September 1771.


"The sorrows of young Werther" describes a miserable love of a young man (Werther) to an engaged (later married) woman. The novel is written from a radical subjective perspective: it consists of letters from Werther mainly to a friend called Wilhelm. Only in the last part of the second book a narrator steps in. The novel consists of two books, which are more parts of a single book than separate novels.
Here is, to begin with, the first book (therefore the first part of the novel). The letters are bundled in months due to file size and range from May to September 1771.

Marvelous, Rainer.

Just to make sure I'm clear on this -- should I catalog both books together? Or is it really two separate books which each deserves its own page?

Will the next section be number 06, or number 01 again?

And thanks for writing a summary -- Stephan will jump for joy ;-)

Yes, please catalogue them together (when the second part comes). The two "books" form a singel novel, and I will name the next section 06. I think it comes from the unusual style of the novel: with just the letters you have no chapters and Goethe uses the fact that Werther makes a journey and Lotte (his love) gets married to make a caesura in the story.

And BTW, that's not the summary yet, I just wrote it to explain the file names. I will write something more informative when I finished the novel.

Hi Rainer

How are you getting on with this? Has he done it yet? Has he suffered enough? (just asking, not pestering - I'll be contacting all my meta project people) :)

Do you have a target completion date? I'm updating my to do list...

Are you okay for storing the files? Sorry, I missed your post on 07 Jan and haven't downloaded the yousendit files. Perhaps Kara has them; I'll ask her.

Hello Gesine,

Werther is still alive. I recorded about two third of the book and I'm sure it will be finished in the course of February. I will send you a bunch of new files in the next days: five pages left before the narrator takes up the story (it consists only of letters before that). Then I'm able to bundle the single letters to reasonable files.

If got a nice big external harddrive standing on my desktop. I have even stored the project files of the first book. If you find any errors in there I'm able to correct them. I will send the mp3s of the first book to you tomorrow.
I know that Kara got them when I posted them the first time, but I already asked myself if you had them, too. Well, now I know: you don't. But I can change that :wink:.

BTW: did you listen to the poems I posted yesterday? I fear I got carried away a little bit, but I listened to a recording of them by Klaus Kinski, who did them very dramatically, too.

Thanks, Rainer. Sorry that I missed your last file send... duplication of effort for you. I look forward to listening to your Werther.

I'll look for your poems soon and will post in the relevant thread then! :)

Hahaha I was just looking through my HUGE directory of librivox projects and saw the "goethe" directory, then saw all the Werther in there and had a sudden shock... was this a completed book that I had completely forgotten to catalog?!?!?!?!?

So I ran to the forums to check... *whew* Gesine is in charge, the book's not finished yet, and everything is under control :)

*wipes panicky sweat from brow*

Hi Rainer

Thanks again for posting the files anew. I have all but 3 now - 3 keeps crashing in the middle. I'll try again tomorrow and if it doesn't work then, I'll post again.

Kara - LOL
