Figures of Several Centuries by Arthur Symons (1865 - 1945).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/figures-of-several-centuries-by-arthur-symons/
Arthur Symons talks through the histories and works of poets, playwrights, scholars and scribes. He provides both personal experience and critical wonder to the worlds of his subjects; Donne, Ibsen, Baudelaire and Emily Brontë among them. (Josh Kirsh)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/21407
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      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!

For a group project you really need to come up with a summary as to why you think people should want to read the book - you can change it for the catalogue later if you want. It's important because.. ? It's well written... ? It's one of your favourite books .... ? Its a bonza book .. ?
I've got to study it at school/university and I'd sooner listen than read ... ?

Thanks, Anne. I've added a summary that I hope distills what I like about the book.

Say hello to the Cornish Triangle while you're over there.

It's like the Bermuda Triangle, only Cornish. :D

I'll MC - will be back in a bit with a MW

ETA:
I shortened the file name while I was at it :) You'll need a DPL, but I think we can wait to advertise until there is something to listen to. Besides, prospective listeners often look here too.

I see you have been working on a solo, Josh, so you probably know how to get into the MW and fill it out. Please give me a holler if I can help with anything! :)

I would like to volunteer my services for section 17, if that would be alright. I'm still a "Noob" so I thought I would try to work with something small. Let me know if I can help.

Thanks.

Just a bit of clarification. For the intro and outro are we using "section" or "chapter"?

Thanks.
