The Ring and the Book - An Interpretation by Francis Bickford Hornbrooke (1849 - 1903).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-ring-and-the-book-an-interpretation-by-francis-bickford-hornbrooke/
Francis Bickford Hornbrooke was an American Unitarian minister who in later years was recognized as an expert commentator on literature, in particular the works of Robert Browning. Of all Browning's output, it was his monumental epic, the Ring and the Book, which most attracted Hornbrooke's attention, and he said that " I have read the poem throughout at least thirty times, and every time with increased pleasure. The more I read it, the more
I love it, and the less I find in it to censure." His interpretation of the poem is distinguished not only by the great expository and rhetorical skills of a celebrated preacher, but also by a deep and appreciative understanding of the passion and expressive mastery of the poet. ( Algy Pug)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/cu31924013443241
  • 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!

Algy,

I can MC this for you.

MW is set up.

The ID tags are not required for solos, the software will insert them automatically during the catalog process.

The foreword is PL OK. My only comment is that the file number is 01 and I believe it should be 00. The first chapter will overwrite it when uploaded, so if you like you can just rename and upload the 'new' foreword then.
