Rupert Brooke by Rupert Brooke (1887 - 1915).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/rupert-brooke-by-rupert-brooke/
A number of poems by Rupert Brook, collected and published in 1925. (KevinS)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/000584344
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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 simple, rather lovely collection of a few of Brooke's poems. Ideal for the newcomer to his work. I have already recorded the poems and edited the file, so we're ready for PL.

Hi Kevin!

That would be lovely. I don't know if you will like what I've done, though. I'm putting all the poems into one section. I place a three second or so pause between them. The length of the recording is about 28 minutes, so it's something of an intense ride through a good many emotions.

If you chose to be DPL, I'll be very grateful.

I'm good with that. I'm wanting to listen to things I wouldn't normally choose to read on my own so this seems like a great one to start with!

OK, set up. SOMETHING has to go in for the section title, so I just put "Poems". Feel free to change it to something else if you like.

This is PL-OK!

Thank you for letting me join you as DPL. I don't tend to gravitate toward poetry, but perhaps I need to spend more time with it.

I was especially touched by "Song" and "The Funeral of Youth". You were right, it was full of intense emotions.

Thank you for helping! I don't read all that well, I think, but I enjoy the poetry immensely.

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/rupert-brooke-by-rupert-brooke/

I think this is our first 1925 project to be cataloged. Not too surprising, I guess. :lol:

I think you read very well! Maybe I’ll learn to enjoy poetry this year!

Thank you. Sometimes one simply has to find that one poet who 'speaks' to one.
