Erin,

Section 16 and 23-30 are PL OK.

Section 20: I hear "esperide et Ultra" for "Hesperides et Ultra"

I like these poems, especially the sexy ones.

Thank you! You know, I was hoping to minimise your workload, but I keep stumbling over these poems (and soon I'm going to go on a hunt for the Greek characters of the title of the poem I've skipped!). Sorry about that! I am glad you're catching them before they go public, but another time I will pick another project that doesn't involve you fixing my google translate-derived errors!

Yeah, the sexy poems are something else!

No, Erin, I love being pedantic!

Hi Pam,

A few more. I don't imagine these will all pass muster with the range of languages he uses, but just say and I'll have another go!

Spot PL for the title in the intro:

My best,

Ah, I wasn't sure if it would be the Latin, German or French that would trip me up, but I thought one of them would. I'm just glad you're patient. Onwards!

Hi Pam,

Okay, we have Greek, French and Latin, so at least one of these is going to come back for corrections! Have at them. I'll have a go at any titles I got wrong when I get the last poem.

19 is on p. 24:
https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=njp.32101062719834;view=1up;seq=36

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/orchids_19_wratislaw_128kb.mp3 (0.56)

33 is on p. 41:
https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=njp.32101062719834;view=1up;seq=53

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/orchids_33_wratislaw_128kb.mp3 (1.15)

36 is for spot PL for the title:
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/orchids_36_wratislaw_128kb.mp3 (0.50)

And everything else starts on p. 50:
https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=njp.32101062719834;view=1up;seq=62;size=175

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/orchids_41_wratislaw_128kb.mp3 (1.18)

I hope this hasn't confused you!

I'm astonished! Well, I'll take it and run.

The last poem is ready for PL:
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/orchids_40_wratislaw_128kb.mp3 (2.46)

And starts on p. 48:
https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=njp.32101062719834;view=1up;seq=60

I must confess, when this is done I'm looking forward to using non-Hathitrust texts for a little while!


Lynne, I have added a short summary and a couple of keywords to the first post.
