Hi,

I have a question. Can we assume that a well known poem by Longfellow is in the public domain?

Wayne
Never assume :mrgreen: It probably is, but never assume, always look for publication information.

Hi Kevin! Thank you for this recording! Did you mean to add those lines in the beginning, starting "Who in the realm to-day lays down dear life for the sake of a land more dear"? They are missing from the recording, though the similar ending lines are included. Nevertheless, great reading! :D

If you re-upload, please use the file-name spc195_deadking_ks_128kb (without the article 'the')

Thank you for yet another contribution to the Poetry collection!
Just to let you know that the ending "This recording is in the public domain." is missing. If you could add it and re-upload, and then it will be complete and perfect! :D

I just found the answer to my question. The poem I found is on LV in a collection of Longfellow poems recorded in 2007. Of course I can't find the source for that reading (at least I don't know how, if there is a way in LV), but I would assume that it being in LV already, it would be in the PD somewhere. And I think that it would be fine to add it to this collection, 12 years later.

Am I correct in all of my above assumptions?

Thanks,

Wayne

It's easy to find a text in an LV page, if it still exist after 12 years. If it's from a book, the text source is on the left hand side (if you're looking at the page from a computer browser) under the link for "online text",
and if it's a collection, like the poetry collection, with different sources for each recording, then there's an extra column called "Source" , between the "Author" and the "Reader".

Still I would say, it's most certainly PD, but even if it is already in the Librivox catalogue, never assume if you haven't checked publication information. We're still human, and might have made a mistake with an existing submission. :shock:

Every section of Librivox is similar in upload requirements, bet each has slight differences.

next up, a very melancholic poem. This is a new author in the database, the poor woman had quite a difficult life and was still young when she died :(

Hi again,

Thanks for the instruction. I had seen those, but it just hadn't sunk in. :roll: .

So here it is: My Lost Youth https://www.bartleby.com/102/69.html

A portion of this poem was quoted in a reading I did on Longfellow in "Hero Tales From History" and it just caught my interest, and when I found it I knew I wanted to add it to this collection.

Bruce.
I have them in the thread, I just didn't get to listen yet. Is it ok that I'm taking my time? If for some reason, we need to take care of it sooner, like that you'll be away and not able to address any pl notes, I'll try to get to them, otherwise it will be some time next week. Thank you for your patience, everybody!

Oh, no rush at all. Sometimes my Internet connection is dubious, just checking that you got them okay.

Enjoy the Summer (it's starting to cool off already here),
Bruce. :)

I know you are really busy, but if you could post and PL this soon it would be greatly appreciated. We are leaving and less than a week for an extended period of time (7 months), so if you could get to this it would be fabulous.
