Here's another article by Henryk Sienkiewicz, this time from an anthropological (and ethnographical) exposition in Paris. Lots of visual descriptions, clothes and objets d'art in the first half and skulls later in the text. Part II will follow soon.

he's got interesting topics in his letter correspondence. They were probably meant to be published and not private, if I understand correctly.

Thank you, Piotr, absolutely PL ok again. :9:

Indeed, he had some sort of deal with the newspaper, if I understand correctly, so he was in effect their correspondent. (The ones sent from US were published in "Przegląd Tygodniowy", while the ones from the Paris exposition appeared in "Nowiny").

Also, can you add "kultura" and "nauka" to the keywords for the latest section?

And here's part 2:
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/msw027_zwystawyantropologicznej2_sienkiewicz_pn81_128kb.mp3 duration 15:17
source: https://pl.wikisource.org/wiki/Z_wystawy_antropologicznej_w_Pary%C5%BCu/II
Keywords: the same as for the 1st piece.

Much of it centers around skull and hair measurements among various nationalities and tribes. That must have been a somewhat significant direction of studies in the 19th century science. There's a famous Polish novel from that period where one of the characters investigated human hair.
There's also a digression around the midpoint where the author talks about the significance of science in general and of the scientific method mentioning, among other things, the Darwin's hypothesis on the origin of humans and how it's up to researchers (rather than "parish priests", as he puts it) to either prove or disprove it. There are also elements of humour; he illustrates the idea of cranial capacity with the image of putting various amounts of groats inside a skull :mrgreen:

Interesting. I haven't heard about this direction of research before. I'm not even sure what measuring the hair would involve... makes me think of some anti-hippie measures I might have encountered during my Soviet-era childhood. :D

and another totally PL ok section, thank you, Piotr. :thumbs: lots of numbers this time, where I struggled a bit, but I think I managed to recognize them all correctly.

Hi Melina,

It looks like you're first submission, so I've created your reader page, assuming that you'd like to be credited in our catalog under your full name (if not, this can be changed):

https://librivox.org/reader/15268

The source meets our public domain requirements. Well done finding it! :thumbs: I'm not sure if you're asking about suggestions for other sites to find public domain Bulgarian sources or for other works to read. I'm sure you know Bulgarian literature better than we do and are in a better positions to choose works. For other sites, Project Gutenberg has a handful of works in Bulgarian:

http://www.gutenberg.org/browse/languages/bg

HathiTrust.org has many more PD Bulgarian texts, which you can find if you do an advanced search with filters for the Bulgarian language, Full View, and publication date of 1924 or earlier. We often use archive.org to find scans of old books, but unfortunately their search engine doesn't work very well for books in non-Latin alphabets.

The only technical issue is the filename, which is missing a couple of expected elements. It should be:

msw027_vazov_gete_melix_128kb.mp3 (also, you'd normally use your initials, mh, instead of your forum name here)

Our MC can fix that during cataloging, but if you need to upload the file again for another reason, please make this change.

Also, could you list a few keywords that describe this work?

Our proof-listener Sonia will check you recording shortly. :)

Michael

hi again, Melina :9: great that you started with a first poem here.

I just had a listen and it was lovely !!! Your diction is so precise and clear to listen to that I managed to understand many many words and sentences. I was surprised as I don't speak Bulgarian at all, but many words are so similar to Russian and with your expressiveness you helped the overall understanding a lot. Thank you for this treat.

Your very first section is PL ok. :clap: Hopefully many more to come.

Michael (Kazbek) already mentioned the file name, which is incomplete, but as you don't have any other corrections to make, I can change it in our folder later on. I'll make a note in the Magic Window (MW) for myself so I won't forget. But careful for future recordings. You can find an example for the correct file name in the first post of each project.

Another thing I want to point out is the silence at the end of the recording. We ask a standard of 5 seconds for each recording. You have almost 6 seconds here. Again, I will not fail the recording for a second more or less, but try to stick to the standard as close as possible. ;)

And if you could give us two or three keywords to classify this poem, that would be helpful.

Thank you, wonderful contribution. 8-)

Hi Melina,

Great to see a longer reading from you! Just a clarification for proof-listening purposes: does the new recording include the same reading of the Goethe poem that Sonia already PLed, or did you record this portion again as well?

Hi Michael,
Yes, this portion is included, but it is a new version, so it needs to be checked again. It is the first section. (I recorded it again because I noticed some too emotional notes of high tonality which the wide audience may not like.)

I actually liked the very foreceful and expressive reading. Also I didn't know that this was only a test, I approved of the version already. So the previous Goethe poem will get deleted then, right ? No point in having the same poem in the same collection twice. If you want to keep it we can use it in the next compilation, if it's really a new recording. Because we don't use twice the exact same recording in two projects.

But ok, I re-listened to it all again now.

I thought the poems could be treated as stand-alone poems, so each would have a section for themselves, but it's also ok if you include them all in one, as they clearly have a title for all the sub-poems. I abbreviated the title in the MW though, as we don't need to include all the sub-poems in the title. The names are already mentioned in the keywords.

The text is wonderfully narrated, I really managed to understand quite a bit thanks to your reading :9:

There are a few cuts that need to be made though. The subdivisions you insert "end of Goethe by Ivan Vasov", "end of Victor Hugo..." etc, they need to be cut out. We don't include any personal comments in our recordings, only read the text it as it is written in the source text. If you want to subdivide, then simply include the numbering as the author did, so here: 1. Goethe, 2. Victor Hugo, etc. But I think you don't need the numbers, it's clear enough when you start with a new name, that it's a new sub-poem.

Here are the cuts that you need to make. I would recommend starting at the end, then the time-stamps stay the same ;)
Please do NOT re-record it all again, simply make the cuts. Otherwise it will be too much work, both for you, and for me as prooflistener.

> 2:53-2:58 / 4:36-4:41 / 5:53-5:57 / 6:41-6:46 / 9:02-9:07 / 9:55-9:59 / 11:08-11:21

> at 11:08: the end say simply (in Bulgarian): "End of Poet by Ivan Vasov", not the whole title of the book and the subtitle for the first part of the book. It's not necessary to know the compilation, as we only treat this as separate poem.

> at the very end we alway leave a standard of 5 seconds of silence, you only have 3, can you add 2 more please ?

Thank you, a lovely contribution and I enjoyed listening to it. :)

Sonia
