Rainbows by Olive Custance (1874 - 1944).


At age 16, London blueblood Olive Custance already figured in literary circles shared by Oscar Wilde and John Gray. She later wrote for the "Yellow Book", a notorious British quarterly of the late 1890's, featuring poems, essays, short stories and artwork by many well-known writers and artists of the age. In 1902 she married Lord Alfred ‘Bosie’ Douglas, famed for his relationship with Oscar Wilde. Opals, her first published poetry collection, appeared in 1897 when she was just 23, to be followed by Rainbows (1902), The Blue Bird (1905) and The Inn of Dreams (1911). ( Nemo)

  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    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!

    DURING recording:
    • No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    • At the beginning of the recording, read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
    "[Poem title], by Olive Custance, read for LibriVox.org" by [your name] or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish.
    • Then read the poem.
    • At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.
    At the end of the book, say (in addition):
    "End of Rainbows, by Olive Custance. "
    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
  • Example filename rainbows_##_custance_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. rainbows_01_custance_128kb.mp3)
