Celebrated Crimes, Vol. 6: Part 3: Martin Guerre by Alexandre Dumas (1802 - 1870). Translated by George Burnham Ives (1856 - 1930)

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/celebrated-crimes-vol-6-part-3-martin-guerre-by-alexandre-dumas/

Martin Guerre was a French peasant that, during a long absence, was famously impersonated in the 16th century. Although the real Martin Guerre is suspected of no serious crimes, his imposter, Arnaud du Tilh, engaged in fraud and adultery while pursuing false claims to the Guerre inheritance. Dumas later incorporates this celebrated crime into his novel “The Two Dianas.” (jvanstan)

  • 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!

Hi Patty Marie,

Draft recordings for all sections have been uploaded and are ready for PL :) I also saw that you've PL'd the previous project and the final section has a quick revision. I'll tackle that soon!

I'll soon be starting Volume 7 with "Ali Pacha" :D

All the best!
John

Got them. You can put me down as dpl for the next volume. :)

I've been busy recording my own project, A History of England. It'll be good to give my voice a rest for a while, though the editing sessions do that as well.

All files are technically PL OK, unless in section 4 you, want to fix "curé" at 15:01 "The old curé" and 15:44 "Curé Pascal". You have to scroll down a ways here to get to the definition as "A parish priest" with audio for (kyur 'ay) https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/cure.

If you don't, you don't need to wait for me, just mark the file PL OK yourself and tell Lynne you're ready for this to be cataloged.

I need to get this into my head, Patty Marie ;) I think I've missed this one several times before!

The section is now revised to pronounce Cur-é.

Thanks and best,
John
