Orchids by Theodore Wratislaw (1871 - 1933).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/orchids-by-theodore-wratislaw/
Theodore Wratislaw was a fin de siècle poet and a less famous Decadent author than some of his contemporaries.

This short collection of verse was first published in 1896. (Newgatenovelist)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=njp.32101062719834;view=1up;seq=7
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): wordperfect



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

Note for a prospective MC: for the first and final sections I've retained the longer disclaimers, but I've shortened the other intros and outros in line with the disclaimers used for short poetry.

Hi Erin,

Sections 1-10 are PL OK.

These are great! Nicely perverse.

Hi Erin,

Sections 11-15, and 21-22 are PL OK.

Section 16 at 03:24 I hear "within" for "withdrawn."

These are quite good!

I'm checking in, as it's been a while since I posted. I haven't forgotten about this book, but I've been a bit under the weather. I'm (unduly?) optimistic about recording again later this month, though!
