Verses by Hilaire Belloc (1870 - 1953).

This project can now be found in our catalog at https://librivox.org/verses-by-hilaire-belloc/
A collection of poetry by Hilaire Belloc ranging from religious verses to drinking songs. ( Larry Wilson)
Volunteers outside the USA: Hilaire Belloc died in 1953. His work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years.
    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/60487
    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!

A wide variety of poems here, a few with Latin or French, and some foot notes.
Pleas wait until the Magic Window is completed before making claims.

MC: There is an extensive introduction by Joyce Kilmer which I will read. Should he be credit somehow?

Thanks so much, Phil :!:

I'll have to put you to work right away, I'm afraid.
Several title jumped to two lines on my spreadsheet, and I didn't catch it.
So, I have seven blank sections at the end that need to be trimmed.

Hi, Stefan!

I've put you in for these!
Section 23, End of the Road is one of my favorites here. Just be aware of the foreign language component -- a bit much for me personally to handle.

These all look like they'll be buckets of fun to read! I'd like to claim sections 2, 4, 10, 16 and 28 if possible. I have a question for section 28 as well:

When I prepare to read the poem, should I read it exactly as it is, or would I need to read the lines in parentheses last? I read it both ways and it sounds like the parentheses are supposed to be read last, but I want to check with BC and MC before I begin audio recording. Thank you.
If a Deaf person swears, does his mother wash his hands with soap? :lol:

Welcome!
I've put you for these sections.

For 28, just ignore the parentheses completely in reading.
While poetry is an auditory experience, the is also a visual element to some modern poetry that appears on the page, but really can't be communicated when reading. Just think of e.e. cummings. What the parentheses in this poem mean, is certainly unclear to me, so just read as if they are not there.
