I was wondering if A.S. might be Algernon Swinburne :hmm:

Hmmm. Well, that could take some reasearch.
Anyway, thanks for this one.

Kevin will have the final one in soon, and our DPL is on the way!

According to wiki Swinburne was one of Kilmer's early inspirations.

My last two poems here! [. . .]
Section 24 and 28 PL notes:
For consistency with other recordings, the author's name is "Kilmer," not "Klimer." Lovely reading, Melody! Once you have corrected the files, re-upload using the same file names and post in this thread.

Section 57 PL notes:
01:10 "Draught" is generally pronounced "draft." Usually I don't comment on pronunciation but your specific pronunciation significantly changes the meaning. You pronounced "draught" like "drought" (a prolonged period of abnormally low rainfall, leading to a shortage of water) instead of "draft" (the act of drinking, which is what is implied by the line - "I pray for a draught from thy bowl"). Also, please ensure that there are 5 full seconds of silence at the end of the file--currently, there are only 4.

Section 33 - Frere Hyacinthus [. . .]
Section 33 PL notes:
Thanks, Alan! Your friendly yet extremely perfectionistic neighborhood proof-listener has noted that the beginning of the file has 1.4 seconds of silence, and should have less than 1 second. :wink: Also, the line at 01:55 reads "outcast is he and damned and spit upon," not "outcast is he and damned to spit upon." Otherwise, good job! Also, I just realized that I have gotten to the point where I have heard so many of your recordings that, when I download files for PL, I can recognize a file is yours just by the Audacity waveform. :lol:

Section 56 - Age [. . .]
Section 56 PL notes:
Same issue here with the silence at the beginning of the recording--almost 2 seconds currently.

I've completed my first two Librivox recordings, sections 32 and 36. Yea! [. . .]
Section 36 PL notes:
Wonderful! Welcome to LibriVox! Your narrating voice is perfect--I hope to PL many more of your recordings. Just one PL note for Section 36... The volume is too loud at 92.6 dB. To de-amplify in Audacity, select the whole recording. Click Effect > Amplify. In the Amplification box, enter the number -3.6. Verify that the file is around 89 dB using Checker. Post in the link in this thread.

Here are sections 3, 19, 21, 40, 42, & 52. [. . .]
Section 40 PL notes:
Thanks for your submission, Stefan! There's only one error that I found, which is in Section 40. The line at 0:38 reads "from the rich clod that was his heart," and I heard "from the rich clog that was his heart."

The uniformity of my waveforms is probably because I always run the Compressor on new recordings and then Amplify to about 5.0 This usually gives an overall volume close to 89db and also removes spikes and plosives, of which I have a lot in my raw recordings. :D

Oh! That would explain it! Your sections are PL OK.

I hadn't initially noticed that there were corrections for 57 as well written there - I'll fix that tomorrow. I often have pronunciation issues, and generally manage (I think) to catch them all before submitting, but I always appreciate a correction to that or anything else!
