Hi Lynne,

Since the 1923 Hemingway book Three Stories & Ten Poems has just been cleared by LibriVox Admin, may I claim his short story "My Old Man" for this collection? :D

There is no need to pre-claim — but as you say, 1923 works have just become PD as of Jan 1 :D

Hi Lynne -

Here's a story from the Gesta Romanorum -

Name of your story: Tale of the Ungrateful Man
Author: Anonymous
Translator: Rev. Charles Swan (17??-18??)
Source: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/58655/58655-h/58655-h.htm#Page_1
Length in mm:ss 15:02
MP3 URL: https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/ss077_ungratefulman_ps_128kb.mp3

I couldn't find any biographic information on Swan. This translation is dated 1824, and I found other works of his published in early 19th Century so I'm guessing he was born in the late 18th century and died in mid 19th century.

I wanted to check on this before I record it...I want to record a story called "Mrs. Murden's Two Dollar Silk" from the Godey's Lady's Book from April 1854 (http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/58494). It does not have an author listed, and I could not find any direct reference to an author name, but it is listed as "By the author of 'Miss Bremer's Visit to Cooper's Landing'" and several other stories. Googling the Miss Bremer title led me to a book called Home Stories by Alice B. Haven (pseudonym for Alice B. Neal).

Alice B. Neal (1828-1863) has a Wikipedia entry which identifies her as a regular contributor to Godey's -- it looks like she had multiple pieces, fiction and nonfiction, in a run of Godey's in the 1850s, so that fits with the venue and time frame for the book.

I'm 99.9% sure she is the correct author for this story, but I just wanted to make sure that someone more experienced than me with these things agreed before I record. Also, would I use the name "Alice B. Neal" or "Alice B. Haven", since this story identifies her as the author of "Miss Bremer's Visit" and the book with Miss Bremer's Visit has the Alice Haven pseudonym?

Thanks for any advice!

Colleen

Edited to add: I also found a bibliography of Alice Neal's works here: http://www.uvm.edu/~hag/presentations/ssaww2001/alicebib.html which does not list "Mrs. Murden's Two Dollar Silk" (although Neal has multiple other pieces listed for that volume of Godey's) -- however it does list the Home Stories book and several other stories where the author is identified as the author of "Miss Bremer's Visit" the same way as this story. According to the bibliography, Neal has several stories in this volume of Godey's (volume 48) though nothing else from this same issue (April 1854), but in all the pieces in volume 48-49 where she is identified as the author in this bibliography, she is listed as having written as (Mrs.) Alice B. Neal, so if you agree, I would use that name.

Thank you. Yes, a work translated almost 200 years ago should be fine :D

Wow, you’ve done a lot of research into this! I agree with your conclusion (but wonder if maybe she was trying to hide something from Mr. Neal... we will never know!).
