Shakespeare Monologues Collection vol. 13 (Multilingual) by William Shakespeare (1554 - 1616).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on the catalog page for this project: http://librivox.org/shakespeare-monologues-collection-vol-13-by-william-shakespeare/
This is the thirteenth collection of monologues from Shakespeare's plays. Our readers have chosen their favourite monologues from Shakespeare's famous comedies, tragedies, and histories, covering a wide range of topics, emotions, and languages. ( Carolin)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here
      please claim before recording.
      Please post your claim in the way it is entered into the magic window:
      [Play name] - [Character] - '[monologue title]'
      for example:
      Hamlet - Hamlet - 'To be, or not to be'
      As you like it - Phoebe - 'I would not be thy executioner'
    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!):
      • English: http://www.shakespeare-monologues.org/
      • other languages are collected here: viewtopic.php?p=1230506#p1230506
    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!

Could I have Rosalind in As You Like It, please?

I have been told so of many; but, indeed, an old religious uncle of mine taught me to speak.

Thank you very much.
