I have my eye on a book that was written in Portuguese in 1899, but recently (I think) translated into English. Would that be in the public domain?

The translation will have it's own copyright, so if its recent probably not.

Just out of curiosity, what would the book be? :hmm:

Sorry for the lag time. It's Dom Casmurro by Machado De Assis, and people rave about this book. I see several of his other books are already on librivox, but for some strange reason, not this, the most famous, one. Translation copyright is 1953, so I'm out of luck. Spiffy

Oh, I see. Yes. I don't think there has been any translations of it that long ago, unfortunately.

Leni, there is so little Brazilian work that has been translated into English nor early enough to be read here. I think you've done great work with Alencar (and I see you did Camões also.) Is there anything left to be done. I would very much enjoy helping
E agora, José?

I know! I am always on the look for more things. There was Canaan, that was done as a collab. I know there is more of Portuguese Literature, so, if you know of something of Brazilian Literature, I will be very happy too!

I might have found a gold mine. This article has a nice list: https://www.modernlanguagesopen.org/articles/10.3828/mlo.v0i0.124/

Now we just have to find the texts! :?

Leni, here is one!

https://archive.org/details/manueldemoraesch00pere/page/n7

I would like to start this once I have fulfilled my commitment regarding "Home Rule." (I have three more chapters to record.)

Would you like to do this one with me? Do you want it for yourself? Tell me what is best.

Nice! And I thought this would be a hard one to find!

I am not managing to record too much these days, so any time I do have is going toward my solos. So, feel free to start it, as a solo or as a group, whichever you prefer. I will be happy to MC too.
