In Vino Veritas From Stages on Life’s Way by Soren Kierkegaard (1813 - 1855). Translated by Lee M. Hollander (1880 - 1972)

Leni is MC
Craig is BC
Kevin is DPL


Volunteers outside the USA: Lee M. Hollander died in 1972. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955) or Canada (author's death plus 50 years), UNLESS the rule of shorter term applies.
In Vino Veritas is one section of Kierkegaard's Stages on Life's Way, originally published in 1845. In a conscious reference to Plato's Symposium, it is determined that each participant must give a speech, and that their topic shall be love. Lee M. Hollander said, "it excels Plato's work in subtlety, richness, and refined humor. To be sure, Kierkegaard has charged his creation with such romantic superabundance of delicate observations and rococo ornament that the whole comes dangerously near being improbable; whereas the older work stands solidly in reality." Some of the speakers in this book are charcters from Kierkegaard's other books. Victor Eremita, Judge William, and Johannes the Seducer were all from Either/Or (1843) and Constantin and the Young Person were from Repetition (1843). (Wikipedia and Soupy)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/60333
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.
      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard
      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!

Hello, Craig! Happy to work with you again.

The project is set up. :) Just a couple of questions:

- In the steps for the recoring, in the beginning of the recording you ask the readers to say just "In Vino Veritas by Soren Kierkegaard", while at the end, they should say "In Vino Veritas From Stages on Life’s Way, by Soren Kierkegaard. Translated by Lee M. Hollander". I think it would be better if it were uniform, no?

- Also in the beginning of recordings, the info you gave is for people to say ""Section 1 The Banquet" . How are they supposed to read the other sections?

Other than that, just waiting for a DPL and for the window to be completed to move us to Readers Wanted. :mrgreen:

Kierkegaard that I understand?! What an opportunity!

How should I help? Your choice: DPL or reader of some sections.

Do you pronounce Kierkegaard with four syllables or three? (That is, more properly, do you pronounced 'ie' as a diphthong?) I suppose I should use the English pronunciation of the close as 'guard.'

I've been looking at this one, it's the Melancholy Dane after all.
I just can't commit to reading a long section right now, and I'm glad Kevin has taken DPL, removing that temptation from me . . . .
I'll keep a watch on this, and take something when I can.
