Hi everyone,

well after looking for it in the catalog, in suggestions, in readers wanted or complete works sections, and as I didn't find it, I propose to start solo on that one:

Charles Baudelaire - Les Fleurs du mal [FRENCH]

The text is on gutenberg here: Les Fleurs du mal

As I have to finish a recording on 'Time and the Gods' by Lord Dunsany, I think I'll start this solo work in a week or two.

So, if anyone sees a reason not to, just shout :)

I recorded Le Revenant.

Thought I'd mention that en passant.

Nothing wrong with Les Fleurs du mal for LV.
You even have an MC here.

Before posting in going solo, don't forget to read this thread so that you know what info we need and what is to be read at the beginning and the end of each section (although, as these are poems, you might like to use the shorter version of the disclaimer which is not given in that thread).

A+,

Je balance une liste d'ouvrages en vrac, juste histoire de donner des idées.. La plupart de ces livres doivent être trouvables dans des bibliothèques universitaires...

Romans "Gothiques" / Grand-Guignol / Gore 1800:

Jules Janin: "L'Âne Mort" (1829)

Pétrus Borel: Champavert (1833), Madame Putiphar (1839)
" Cet homme étrange à l'écriture baroque et souvent déconcertante, connut une gloire posthume grâce à André Breton et aux surréalistes, qui exhumèrent, pour les encenser, ses ouvrages «révolutionnaires»."
http://www.anthologie.free.fr/anthologi ... /borel.htm

Frédéric Soulié: "Les Deux Cadavres" (1832), "Les Mémoires du Diable" (1837)
"Frédéric Soulié is another writer of the roman frénétique. In his time he was as well known as Balzac or Eugène Sue. His Les Mémoires du diable (1838) is mentioned in Colin Wilson’s Misfits and the Romantic Agony."

Alexandre Dumas: Le Meneur de Loups (1857)
Paul Féval: "La Ville Vampire", "Le Chevalier Ténèbre"...

Marcel Schwob: "Coeur Double" (1891)
http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepage ... schwob.htm

Récits de science-fiction avant l'heure:

Villiers de l'Isle-Adam: Contes cruels (1883)
Villiers de L’Isle-Adam: L'Eve Future (1886)

Didier de Chousy: Ignis (1883)

Jules Verne: La Journée d'un journaliste americain en 2889
Jules Verne: L'éternel Adam

écrits zutistes: "Album Zutique" (1871)

Autres grands chefs-d'oeuvre:

Potocki: "Manuscrit trouvé à Saragosse" (1813-14)
Du vivant de Potocki, seules furent imprimées les Journées 1 à 13, sous forme de placards non mis dans le commerce (...)
http://www.jose-corti.fr/titresromantiq ... gosse.html

William Beckford: "Vathek" (1782), roman gothique écrit en français
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vathek
une édition préfacée et dédicacée (!) par Mallarmé peut être téléchargée
http://gallica.bnf.fr/document?O=N071058

Par ailleurs, une version à lecteurs multiples du "Dictionnaire des idées reçues" de Flaubert pourrait être assez désopilante..

à bon entendeur!

Hi everyone,
just wanted to know if got everything alright before starting the real thing:

I feel like reading in my mother tongue, Proust seeming a nice public-domain author that hasn't been read yet -given it's not in the catalogue in the French original version.

I don't mind reading the whole first book first, and wouldn't mind either if other people joined the business. The first book Du Côté de Chez Swann includes three parts:

I - Combray
part 1
part 2
II - Un amour de Swann
III - Noms de pays: le nom

I'd like to read Combray alone - comfier for me since I wouldn't have to check every 5 minutes on the site if someone wishes to read what I am about to.


Several questions:

1/ This book is not seperated in smaller chapters than the parts exposed above. How should I split what I read then? Or maybe I shouldn't split them at all and add them to one another once I've recorded everything, so as to make one big file for each part in the book...? Perhaps a bit large a file to load for portable players... --> Is there a number of words usually used to split such books, or something like that?

2/ Definitely not in ogg?

3/ Is the equation ‘it's not in the catalogue’ = ‘it hasn't been done yet and isn't being done so go ahead’ right?

4/ Should I say the announce ‘this is a librivox recording bla bla’ in English, French, or both?


Thanks folks, please give the right url for things that sound obvious to you if any. See you.


En français:

Bonjour tout le monde,
je voulais simplement savoir si j'avais bien tout compris avant de me lancer:

J'ai envie de lire dans ma langue maternelle, Proust ayant bien l'air d'un auteur en domaine public qui n'ait pas encore été lu (étant donné qu'il n'existe pas au catalogue dans sa version française).

Ça ne me dérange pas de lire le premier livre en entier seul dans un premier temps, et ça ne me dérangerait pas non plus que d'autres personnes se joignent à l'affaire. Le premier livre, Du Côté de Chez Swann a trois parties:

I - Combray
part 1
part 2
II - Un amour de Swann
III - Noms de pays: le nom

J'aimerais bien lire Combray seul - ce serait plus pratique pour moi, ne pas avoir à vérifier sur le site toutes les 5 minutes si quelqu'un a envie de lire ce que j'apprête à lire moi.


Quelques questions pour finir:

1/ Ce livre n'est pas séparé en chapîtres plus petits que les parties exposées ci-dessus. Quel est la politique de séparation des fichiers dans ce genre de cas? Ne pas séparer du tout et faire un seul gros fichier de tout ce que j'ai enregistré...? Ça ferait peut-être des fichiers un peu gros à mettre en mémoire pour les lecteurs portables... --> Y a-t-il un nombre de mots canonique pour séparer des livres de ce type, ou ce genre de choses?

2/ Donc pas de ogg, c'est sûr?

3/ L'équation ‘ce n'est pas au catalogue’ = ‘personne ne l'a encore et fait ou n'est en train de le faire et je peux y aller’ est-elle bonne?

4/ La phrase type ‘ceci est un enregistrement Librivox blabla’: dois-je la dire en anglais, en français, ou les deux?


Merci beaucoup les gens, donnez-moi l'url qui va bien si je demande des choses évidentes, à bientôt.

Welcome corny! Here are some answers to your questions:

1. For a book with no chapters, we choose a spot that has a natural break and split them like that. I usually go for files that are between 20 and 30 minutes long.

2. No Definitely not in ogg! The permanant storage of our files uses mp3 and makes the ogg files from those.

3. ‘it's not in the catalogue’ = It does not matter if it has already been done. We welcome multiple versions of the same book.

4. You can use French for the disclaimer as the book will be read in French.

We usually encourage newcomers to contribute to a smaller project before embarking on a solo to see how the system works and to iron out any technical glitches that may occur.

Have fun recording!

Esther

:D

Hi Corny,

This would be a great project to get underway. It would also, I think, be quite a major project to be responsible for, so might be a good idea as a newbie to get a chapter or two of something else under your belt first, so you can get experience of how things work. You can see a list of French books needing readers here:

http://librivox.org/newcatalog/search_a ... ion=Search

Other than that, I'd be very willing to read for the project and also to MC if you can put up with my mangled French (you need an MC to do some of the behind the scenes stuff).

Cheers,
Carl.

Bonjour et bienvenue Corny !

Il me semble que Carl et Esther ont déjà tout dit.
Si vous voulez vous faire la main, en français, avant de vous lancer dans un projet de longue haleine en solo, les projets collectifs actuels se trouvent ici.

Pour ce qui est de la division des parties en sections plus courtes (il me semble aussi que des fichiers de 20-30 minutes sont préférables. Pour moi, cela équivaut à 10-15 pages d'environ 400 mots), si vous voulez voir un peu comment cela peut se faire, rendez-vous ici.

Pour ce qu'il faut dire, en français, au début et à la fin des enregistrements, vous trouverez les informations dans cette note (c'est dans ce fil que vous trouverez quelques informations pour les projets en solo).
Pour ma part, si je subdivise les chapitres, j'ai maintenant tendance à mentionner le numéro de la section, puis la partie du chapitre qui est lue avant "[Chapitre ##] de [Titre du livre]. Ceci est un enregistrement LibriVox. ...".
Cela me semble plus clair pour l'auditeur.

À bientôt !

Hello and welcome Corny!

Carl and Esther have said it all.

If you want to try your hands, in French, before getting into a long term project in solo, there are some collaborative works in progress (see link above).

What regards dividing parts into shorter sections (I too think that 20-30 minutes long files are better. To me that's 10-15 pages with 400 words per page), if you want to see how it can be done, check the link above.

For the intros and outros, in French, you'll find informations in the post linked to above (there's info on solo projects in that thread).
Personally, if I need to divide chapters, I know tend to tell the section number and the part of the chapter before the intro.
I think it makes things clearer for the listener.

See you!

I'd be perfectly willing to contribute to a recording of the complete oeuvre in French, or even just a few poems to go up separately. Any takers?

We have a few very keen readers of French poetry, so maybe one or more of them would like to work together with you on this. If not, you could certainly do it solo. If you'd like to have a try at something first (which we'd certainly recommend before you think of going solo), the Multilingual Poetry Collection would love to have a French poem or two from you!

I was going to post here to suggest Fantômas, but it doesn't look like any e-texts are forthcoming, unfortunately.

Though failing that, I happen to have found much of the writings of Paul Féval, all available from the same page:

http://jydupuis.apinc.org/auteurs/feval.htm

I can also add that a fair proportion of his works are also on Gutenberg, were published well before 1900, and I've found no sign of any copyright renewals, so it's probably safe to assume it's all PD.

Having left that bundle at your proverbial doorstep, I will now run away. Hope someone picks it up. :wink:

Unfortunately, it's not PD in Europe yet. But let it not keep readers who can do it legally from recording it.

A book that was celebrated in the early 19th century:

Bernardin De Saint-Pierre: Paul et Virginie [in French, originally published 1787] [available in our catalog in English]

It is not on the Gutenberg, as far as I know, but I could send a pdf copy of an early 19th century edition to a volunteer's private e-mail!

In the Wikipedia the book is represented here:

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_et_Vi ... 28roman%29

and its author here:

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacques-He ... int-Pierre

I'd be very happy if someone from our French speaking LV friends would consider it among their future projects...

With the best wishes,
Ellis
