Wonderful, Jason, thank you! :9: If you finish the rest and Anthony is able to PL soon, we may be able to catalog this week!

I know it will probably be at least a few weeks, but I would like to make a few requests from the next section of this one.

I only read down through section II, as it seems that most of the ones after that will be DR. I would like to have these 4 from section II. There are a good many in that section, so each of us should be able to have 4-5.

Seven ages of man - Shakespeare
Ode on a Grecian Urn Keats
The Bells - Poe
Mist - Thoreau

Hopefully this is cool. As for the rest, as always, I leave my selections to Kitty.
Regards,
Jason (back) in Canada

That's quite alright, Jason, you're welcome to choose what you'd like. If Sonia gives the OK (I'm sure she will), you could even record those poems when you have the time now, and then upload them when the next project is launched.

Speaking of the next project, if all goes to plan, we may be able to launch at the beginning of next month---maybe even late next week, if Sonia has the time to determine what the DRs will be. We'll make an announcement on that soon...

I was maybe considering having each Bell read by another reader, since they have different temperaments. But yes, since technically they are not speaking but someone is describing them, I guess one could leave it as a solo. So I have no problem marking you down for them, unless others wanted those sections. Tomas, Craig and Adrian, any objections ? Do you wish me to choose again for you ? And most importantly, are you all up for the next part ?

I haven't started looking at the poems yet. But since we are complete here now, I will probably do that in the days to come. Stay tuned !

I thought the same on the Bells, that each gets darker as they go on. I would love to interpret them all, and I think the effect could be good to hear the change in one voice over the course of the poem. I of course will let you make the final decision.

Yes, for the rest of the poems I leave it to you to choose for me. You know what I like.

One other thing - I wanted Ozymandias also, but I'm sure that will be a DR. Would like a part in that if possible.

yes I think it works perfectly well with one reader, in fact I know as I have done it myself :lol: https://librivox.org/the-bells-and-other-poems-by-edgar-allan-poe/ (not recommended to listen to before you record yours, I don't want to influence you, but I had a lot of fun changing between the temperaments.)
