Roast Beef by Gertrude Stein (1874 - 1946).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/roast-beef-by-gertrude-stein/
The last stanza of the prose poem Roastbeef, part of 'Food', taken from Stein's book Tender Buttons (1914), consisting of three sections titled "Objects", "Food", and "Rooms". While the short book consists of multiple poems covering the everyday mundane, Stein's experimental use of language renders the poems unorthodox and their subjects unfamiliar. ( David Lawrence )
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!
The Modernist prose poem was suggested by KevinS. :clap:
This week's poem can be found here.

Set your recording software to:
Channels: 1 (Mono)
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44100 kHz

Have questions on "how"?
Check LV's Recording Notes thread before recording. If this is your first recording, you'll also find this Newbie Guide to Recording useful.
Begin your reading with the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:
No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
Roast Beef by Gertrude Stein, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal url.]
Then read the poem:
There is coagulation in cold and there is none in prudence. Something is preserved and the evening is long and the colder spring has sudden shadows in a sun. All the stain is tender and lilacs really lilacs are disturbed. Why is the perfect reëstablishment practiced and prized, why is it composed. The result the pure result is juice and size and baking and exhibition and nonchalance and sacrifice and volume and a section in division and the surrounding recognition and horticulture and no murmur. This is a result. There is no superposition and circumstance, there is hardness and a reason and the rest and remainder. There is no delight and no mathematics.


At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.

Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
Save your recording as an mp3 file using the following filename and ID3 tag format:
File name - all in lowercase: roastbeef_stein_your initials in lowercase_128kb.mp3
(e.g. roastbeef_stein_klh_128kb.mp3 )

Thank you very much for running this. I hope people will see the interest and fun in its reading. There will be many variations, even while the words remain the same.
