The Story of King Arthur, in Twelve Tales by Winona Caroline Martin (1882 - 1918).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/the-story-of-king-arthur-in-twelve-tales-by-winona-caroline-martin/
Of all the legends of bygone ages which we in the foremost ranks of time may call our own perhaps none have come to us so fraught with the spirit of lofty idealism as those which cluster about the figure of King Arthur of Britain and the mystic Quest of the Holy Grail.

In their devious wanderings down the centuries they have gradually been purified of all original coarseness while still retaining that wonderful charm and simplicity which belongs to the tales of the childhood of the race. Furthermore, upon the lips of many a bard, both ancient and modern, they have become literature, so that they are now the rightful heritage of the child of to-day and should, in one form or another, find a place in every class room as supplementary reading at least.

Because, for obvious reasons, in dealing with young children, the versions of the masters have not always proved practicable, the author has ventured to offer this little volume which grew out of a library story-hour trusting that it may be useful to mothers, teachers, children’s librarians and others who are endeavouring to hold before the children of a materialistic age that vision without which the people perish. ( Winona Caroline Martin)
    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/storyofkingarthu00mart
    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.

this project is ready to go, all readers and a dpl are most welcome :)

the author does not have a wikipedia page, which is a shame:
• Winona Caroline Martin (b. 1882), YMCA canteen worker. A Long Island librarian who had worked industriously to be sent abroad with the YMCA, Martin was being treated for scarlet fever at Paris’ Claude Bernard Hospital. In a 11 Mar. 1918 German air raid on the hospital, Martin was killed. She is considered the first American woman to die in the war due to enemy action. As noted in this report in the Salt Lake Herald, Martin had declared, “I would go just the same if I knew the boat I went on would be torpedoed,” and provided an account of an earlier air raid on the hospital. Sadly, this marked the third death in the family for Martin’s physician brother, Captain Arthur Chalmers Martin, as he had previously lost his parents. The women’s auxiliary of the J. Franklin Bell VFW post in Rockville Centre, NY, was named in his sister’s honor in 1921.

you have magic window access :)

i see you already know your way around the magic window, so i wont add a long explanation of that.

proof listening can be very easy and it can also be very difficult, but it certainly gets easier by doing. just let me know if you need any help :)

Thank you so much. I look forward to PLing—mainly haven’t done it yet due to not using/knowing Audacity in case others need help there but figure that’s not a good excuse since i can learn it

Thank you so much! I took the liberty (hopefully didn't overstep the PLer bounds) in assigning you this section. Have fun!

Hello, Carolin! Could I please do tales 2 and 3 to start with? I might be able to do more, depending on how quickly I get these done. This will be my first time recording, so I'm really excited!

Hi Caroline!

I'd like to claim section 3, "Tale III - How Arthur Won His Sword 'Excalibur', His Bride and His Round Table".

This looks like a really fun project. I'm excited to participate.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Oops, I somehow didn't see that bwarcher had requested section 3. May I instead claim section 6, "Tale VI - Tristram the Forest Knight".

Thank you!

I'm also new to the world of audiobook recording, but I'm eager and ready to go.
I'd like to take Tale VII Tale VII - The Adventures of Launcelot, if possible
