The Arabian Nights Entertainments Volume 02 by Anonymous ( - ). Translated by Dr. Jonathan Scott (1754 - 1829)

This project is now complete. All files can be downloaded from the catalog page here:https://librivox.org/arabian-nights-entertainments-02-by-anonymous/[/color]


The second of four volumes of Middle Eastern tales, originally written in Arabic. Scheherazade tries to prolong her husband's interest in her - and therefore her life - by telling her tales in installments. - Summary by Gillian Hendrie

    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 (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/5665
    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.

Window done - I see you know that, it's filling up. I tweaked the file name to match volume 1 - it's not essential but nice if someone downloads both volumes I think

Thank you Anne! I have added another section, as when I looked more closely there was one more 'story'.

I will make a start . . .

These are very strange stories! And a lot more bloodthirsty than I was expecting. But it's good to see all this fabric in them!

Section 4 is uploaded:

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/thearabiannightsentertainmentsvolume02_04_anonymous.mp3

Dur: 35:39

I am sensing a bit of a theme here!

There are quite a few errors in the translation or the printing. For example, 'strewn' instead of 'shown', and 'conduce' instead of 'conduct'. I have used my common sense, and only changed words so that the sentences make sense.

I agree with your corrections.
I have to say that I am already very tired of hearing about people having their parts chopped off. I hope something more entertaining comes along soon.

At least they still have all their parts this time! This is a long chapter, but the next one is considerably shorter . . .

Lovely and short - but more body parts missing, and I can see more of the same coming up!
