Arthur Wing Pinero, Playwright - A Study by Hamilton Fyfe (1869 - 1951).

A discussion about the life and works of the playwright Arthur Wing Pinero. The perfect accompaniment to the plays by Pinero available here at Librivox. (ToddHW)
  • mightyfelix is our DPL. Hooray!

    And WHOOPS - the author's name is FYFE, not Fyke. I think I have fixed it everywhere.

    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!): https://archive.org/details/cu31924013536796
    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.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      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!

      START of recording (Intro)
      • "Section [number] of Arthur Wing Pinero, Playwright. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
      • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

I’ll put in for Serious Intent parts 1 and 2, i’ve been enjoying Pinero’s plays and will be interested in learning more about him.

Umm... FYI, the surname of this author is Fyfe, not Fyke. Just discovered it when confirming new authors to the database.
Original journals on the Exploration of the Mississippi: Here
Fiction, partly about jail atrocities: It Is Never too Late
Watergate Report, volume 2: Here
E E Cummings' time in French prison: The Enormous Room

Okay, I have fixed this everywhere, including the filenames of the two files already submitted. I'm just going to ignore the "mispronunciation" of the name in the two actual recordings.

Drat. Drat. Drat. Not being able to see well enough to proof my poor typing is a nuisance.

Thanks, Todd

Oh, I can correct my two sections, and you can put me down for Section 3 as well. In fact, you can put me in for DPL, too, I guess. Seems to be moving slowly.
