Here are two poems by Dimitrie Bolintineanu:
https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/msw020_domnaluinegoe_bolintineanu_lf_128kb.mp3
- Title of work - Dómna luĭ Négoe

https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/msw020_cerbul_bolintineanu_lf_128kb.mp3
- Title of work - Cerbul
thank you, Livia, the two poems are very beautifully read, although this time, I did not understand that much :lol: I like the second one, that it's a sort of dialogue. I checked cerbul with google translate, so this is a stag. And the other the emperor who wants to kill him ? :hmm:

Both are PL ok. :)

another very interesting choice, epachuko 8-) I have not heard of this woman before but she sounds like an interesting and strong person. The text is again beautifully read and clearly understandable. But I found a few errors this time which need to be corrected:

> at 4:06: (p. 25 middle) the beginning of the sentence is missing: “Un commandante nos decia

> at 9:23: (p. 27 middle) “la reforma de un culpable” is repeated, can be cut out once

> at 9:54: (p. 27 middle) stumble and repeat: “que tuviesen conocimientos de fisiologia”, can be cut out once

> also I noticed, your DC bias is really high. Normal would be around -1, 0 or +1 but you have +178 :shock: It means that your recording is not clearly centered on the middle line, you see that well when you enlarge the portion in Audacity. It can be easily removed though. If you use Audacity, this is how it works:

> highlight your recording
> go to Effect
> go to Normalize
> tick Remove DC offset and press OK

thank you

Thank you, Sonia! :D

There are several legends about Curtea de Argeș Monastery.
These legends have inspired many Romanian writers.
Neagoe Basarab and his wife were founders of Curtea de Arges Monastery.
Neagoe Basarab's wife offered her jewels for sale, to get money for this cathedral.
This beautiful act is described, in a dramatic way, by D.Bolintineanu in his poem Dómna luĭ Négoe.

You understand well, Sonia :)
There is a dialogue between a stag and an emperor.
The stag is hunted by the emperor at the request of his wife. The stag (he is also the prophet) asks the emperor to delay his death, but the emperor can not fulfill his prayer. Then, the stag tells him a prophecy: They will both die tonight. The Emperor will be killed by his wife, who will lead the empire together with her lover.
The poem has significant allegorical content.

Best regards,

Livia

wow thank you ! This is a bit of a creepy tale. I have not read anything by Echegaray so far, but if his stories are all a bit like this, I may read some others one of these days. :9: I hope he is already translated in English, as my Spanish is not good enough to really get all the details which are surely important.

This section is PL ok. And wonderfully narrated again. :thumbs:

there is no limit of sections you can contribute to this project though. Don't worry about "abusing". :) I don't mind hearing more Spanish stories.

BTW I updated his biography and mentioned the Nobel prize award. Thank you for the information. :) https://librivox.org/author/9045
