Multilingual Short Works Collection 027 - Poetry & Prose by Various .

This is our 27th collection of short pieces, poetry or prose, fiction and non-fiction, in several different languages (except standard English) as listed below. All chosen and recorded by Librivox volunteers. ( ToddHW)
  • This collection is complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page at: https://librivox.org/multilingual-short-works-collection-027-poetry-prose-by-various/

    Since the current collection (026) is full, here is another one. Kazbek will be BC, I will be MC, and Sonia will be DPL again.

    This collection is for short works, in any language except (modern) English. This can include poetry but also prose, fiction as well as non-fiction.

    Feel free to choose any work which is in the public domain. If you're unsure what we mean by 'public domain', please read this explanation. Try to stick to works that run less than 60 minutes.

    Please follow the instructions in this post carefully. :) There is no need to "sign-up" before recording; please remember that you should choose a work that is Public Domain in your country AND that was published before 1924; if you are unsure about anything, please post here and ask before recording!

    Everyone can contribute as many recordings as he/she wants.

    It's OK to submit readings in English (English being a language, I figure), but as there are plenty of other places to put those, let's limit them to special cases such as interesting regional dialects or accents.

    If you are interested to see what has been done previously, check the previous Multilingual Collections in our catalog (but we welcome multiple versions of the same work).

    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

    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!

a very strong beginning :thumbs: I loved the story and especially the ending when all started to revert to the old virtues :lol: the poor Devil ;)

It's excellently narrated, I think I understood it all actually. It's not a difficult text and you read it very expressively which made it easy to follow.

I have a few small corrections to suggest. A few words are different in the text, but I know that some of them don't much change the meaning, so you can check yourself and if you don't want it word perfect, then some words you don't have to correct.

> at 0:05-0:10: "em Historias sem data publicado...." – you can cut out the title of the compilation, we only need the title of the story and the author

> at 0:37: "conta um velho manuscripto benedictino" – you say "certo" - optional

> at 8:39: (p. 8) "as multidões ao pé de si" – you say "entorno" - optional

> at 9:50: (p. 8) part of sentence missing (underlined): "mas ainda pondo de lado essas razões de ordem litteraria ou historica, para só mostrar o velor intrinseco d'aquella virtude, quem negaria que..."

> at 10:27: (p. 9) "que chegava a supprir" – you say "supprimir" - maybe this was a typo in the book ? :hmm:

> at 11:48: (p. 10) "porque são" – I hear "porque não"

> at 12:11: (p. 10) "á porção moral do homem" – you say "parte" - optional

Thank you

Sonia

Hi!
Could you please clarify the following issue with the short work I'm going to record in Ukrainian?
https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=chi.085315935&view=1up&seq=81&size=125
To me the title has two typoes, because
1) in Ukrainian the name is pronounces as Кырыло,
2) in the text we see only this word instead of Кирило like in the title.
Could I say Кырыло for the title?
Thanks!
Russian readers wanted: Сказки, Детство by Лев Толстой, Щелкунчик.
Ukrainian readers wanted: Казки, Вiршi.

Hi Hanna,

It's not exactly a typo. It looks like all the titles (and other editorial content) in this book are in Russian, while the texts are in Ukrainian. Certainly, please read the name in Ukrainian, as it appears in the text itself.

no need to apologize, Rachel, such small errors can happen in such a long text, and the differences were not that important, you could have chosen to opt out of some of them. But I see you corrected them all, and wonderfully well, so now it's word-perfect even. :thumbs: Absolutely PL ok. Thank you so much. A great first submission in this compilation. 8-)

You know that feeling when you want to record something but you're too lazy to pre-read something long? :mrgreen:
Luckily I came across this short, yet striking newspaper article, which ties in with the story I soloed recently about two people conned into emigrating to America. Indeed this piece is written by the same author. A few months ago I visited Museum of Emigration in Gdynia, where a part of the exposition was dedicated to dire travel conditions and unscrupulous agents, two issues mentioned both in the solo and in the article.

Hi invisibleCat,

It's great to have a contribution in classical Chinese! Unfortunately, in order to ensure that the recording is in the public domain in the US, where our servers are located, we need to verify the publication date of the edition we read from, and not just when the work was composed or originally published. Since Wikisource doesn't provide scan images for the edition this text is drawn from, I'm afraid we can't use it. We can read from a scan where the title page shows a publication year of 1924 or earlier (archive.org is a good place to look for these), or a text from gutenberg.org, or a text that is available in FullView at HathiTrust.org.

I did a quick search and found a couple of PD editions of the anthology 古文觀止, where this essay can be found.

The first is Project Gutenberg:

http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/25225

It looks like there are some differences between the two versions at the start and at the end. I haven't checked the rest. HathiTrust also has a PD edition of this anthology:

https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/100059148

We need to ask you to compare you reading with one or more of these versions. If one of them matches your reading, that's great. If not, please edit your recording to match one of them, or you could record it again from one of these PD sources.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Michael
