Satires by Juvenal (approx: 60-127 AD). Translated by GG Ramsay (1839-1921).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/satires-by-decimus-iunius-iuvenalis-juvenal/
Decimus Iunius Iuvenalis, known in English as Juvenal, was a Roman poet active in the late 1st and early 2nd century AD. The details of the author's life are unclear, although references within his text to known persons of the late 1st and early 2nd centuries AD fix his terminus post quem (earliest date of composition). The Satires are a collection of satirical poems by Juvenal written in the late 1st and early 2nd centuries AD. Juvenal is credited with sixteen known poems divided among five books; all are in the Roman genre of satire, which, at its most basic in the time of the author, comprised a wide-ranging discussion of society and social mores in dactylic hexameter. These five books were discrete works, and there is no reason to assume that they were published at the same time or that they are identical in theme or in approach. The poems are not individually titled, but translators have often added titles for the convenience of readers. (Summary by wikipedia)
  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'd 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.ccel.org/ccel/pearse/morefathers/files/index.htm#Juvenal_Satires

    The text has many footnotes, please do NOT read them!
  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.

  7. DURING recording:
    Please leave no more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of your recording!

    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Section [number] of Satires. - 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]"
    • Say:
      " Satires, by Juvenal. Translated by GG Ramsay [Satire ##]"

    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Satire ##]"

      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):

    Also, please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  8. AFTER recording:
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    satires_##_juvenal.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. satires_01_juvenal.mp3)

    ID3 V2 tags
    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!

    Title: ## - [Section title] (eg. 03 - Satire 3)
    Artist: Juvenal
    Album: Satires

    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

OK, I think that is it! If a very kind and wonderful MC could resurrect the abandoned solo, I would appreciate it! I have added 1 extra section because Satire 6 is 7700 words, so it needs to be split. I will also DPL this project!

Question of clarification: you do not need the old thread moved over to the Launch Pad, correct? It looks like you have all the info you need?

What I need to get are the PL notes for sections 1 and 2. Just so that I know what I need to do to fix them. This one looks pretty straightforward. I usually try to get the old summary, but I think that what I pieced together from Wiki sounds OK, so I will go with it!

Hello, can I claim satire 7?

Also, I suppose you don't want the footnotes read, right?

Best,
Leni

Best,

Hi Leni,

Satire 7 is yours. No, please don't read the footnotes. I think that satire will sound better without them. Thanks for asking!
