Dialogues of the Dead by George Lyttelton (1709 - 1773).
Can the dead of different ages and spaces meet in the afterlife? This is a thought that has occupied a number of writers throughout literature, George Lyttleton being one of them. He allows Plato to discourse with Fenelon, allows a native American warrior to explain the barbarity of the custom of duels among gentlemen to a victim of such a duel, and he has William Penn clash with Fernando Cortez over Cortez's cruelty in Mexico. The characters of the conversations are as different as the subjects, drawing not only on Lyttleton's rich historical knowledge, but also on his experience as a statesman. ( Carolin)
    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/17667
    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.

That looks slightly complicated :wink:

I'd like to do Circe from Dialogue 5 (but, I thought she and Ulysses met anyway? So much left to say??) but do I only read my parts? Then who's doing the editing?
Cheers,
Ava.

nah, sounds logical to me. There might be confusion about who is doing the intro/outro and the editing, but we are all adults here, it should be fine.
Cheers,
Ava.

Carolin,

I would like to claim section 27 .... Dialogue XXVII.

I will be reading the role of Mercury, and I asked reader Eva Davis if she would like to join me in the role of a Modern Fine Lady and she agreed!

Thank you,
