The complete poetical works of Edgar Allan Poe by Edgar Allan Poe (1809 - 1849).

In placing before the public this collection of Edgar Poe's poetical works, it is requisite to point out in what respects it differs from, and is superior to, the numerous collections which have preceded it. Until recently, all editions, whether American or English, of Poe's poems have been verbatim reprints of the first posthumous collection, published at New York in 1850.

In 1874 I began drawing attention to the fact that unknown and unreprinted poetry by Edgar Poe was in existence. Most, if not all, of the specimens issued in my articles have since been reprinted by different editors and publishers, but the present is the first occasion on which all the pieces referred to have been garnered into one sheaf. Besides the poems thus alluded to, this volume will be found to contain many additional pieces and extra stanzas, nowhere else published or included in Poe's works. Such verses have been gathered from printed or manuscript sources during a research extending over many years.

In addition to the new poetical matter included in this volume, attention should, also, be solicited on behalf of the notes, which will be found to contain much matter, interesting both from biographical and bibliographical points of view. ( John H. Ingram, the editor)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/10031
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      • Then read the poem.
      • At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.

    8. At the end of the book, say (in addition):

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

I can hardly wait for the MW to appear... :shock:
I'm not much of a poetry lover, but POE is my Perfectly Overwhelming Exception.
I have several in mind that I'd like to read.
Is there a limit on how many selections can be claimed by one reader?
I don't see anything about that mentioned in the initial post.
Thank you...LJB 8-)

This is set up.

I changed the file name to shorten it, and in the intro/outro I changed "chapter" to "section". Otherwise, I think you're ready to populate the MW.

Don't use double quotes " in section titles, since they cause big problems at Archive. Instead, you can use two single quotes in a row ''. Other than that, I think the MW setup should be pretty straightforward.

Well . . . . my very first recording for LibriVox was The City in the Sea just a little over six years ago!
The BC/MC was Tricia. :D

If I could take 30 Silence, and 33 Hymn it will be like old times. :wink:

Well, I'll advise you to take the sections one or two at a time so you'll be able to finish it in a short time. After you're done you can claim more sections. :)
Also, I really wanted to do "The Raven" so I'll be really happy if you could take another saction instead.
Let me know what to do.🙃
