I have a few suggestions, if it's not too late yet :)

For Drama:

The Castle Spectre, by Matthew Lewis, who is more known for his famous Gothic Novel The Monk (which you could mention as well). Here it's a Gothic drama, you can read the synopsis here:

https://librivox.org/the-castle-spectre-by-matthew-lewis/

For Poems:

Edgar Allan Poe of course comes to mind, but you probably had him already. But maybe his most famous poem The Raven in multilingual editions may be a novel choice ?

https://librivox.org/the-raven-multilingual-by-edgar-allan-poe/

For Novels:

Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu is a good example for Gothic literature, a bit less known than Bram Stoker maybe, but his stories are similar in creepiness and writing style. I found a few in our database, here is maybe a good example:

https://librivox.org/the-evil-guest-by-joseph-sheridan-le-fanu/

Another good writer is Richard Marsh, and there is actually one novel I contributed to. The Joss. It was written from the perspective of 4 people, two men and two women, so 4 LV readers took those chapters to stay in character. It was my first foray into prose chapters, after only doing short poems :shock: Quite a revelation for me, back then. Unfortunately my microphone was not a good one yet, so maybe this is not a good example to tout...but Marsh also wrote other novels, if you like to present another one.

https://librivox.org/the-joss-a-reversion-by-richard-marsh/

For other languages than English:

Recently I DPLed a Spanish short story collection by Leopoldo Lugones. The stories all have a creepy element, but embedded and explained in a sort of scientific explanation (like for example, a man invents a machine which creates sounds that would melt matter, so when he tries it on himself, his brain melts and he is found dead after some days :help: ) That sort of thing.

https://librivox.org/las-fuerzas-extranas-by-leopoldo-lugones/

Enough for the moment :)

What wonderful suggestions. And the last one makes me wish I knew Spanish or had one of those translating fish things...

Thanks, Todd

:lol: the Babel Fish ? I'm not sure I would want to put that in my ear to be honest. :?

I was surprised by how much I understood from those Spanish stories, because believe it or not, I don't speak Spanish. But since the language is so similar to other languages I speak, and Victor (the reader) is really narrating quite expressively and slowly enough to follow, it was a real treat to get to know about this writer. That's why it came to my mind now when I read about the topic. :D

Related to spirituality may be something on philosophy by Bertrand Russell?

1. May be from "The problems of philosophy":
https://librivox.org/the-problems-of-philosophy-by-bertrand-russell-2/

this concluding chapter: the value of philosophy
http://ia800606.us.archive.org/0/items/problemsofphilosophy_1706_librivox/problemsofphilosophy_15_russell_128kb.mp3

There is another earlier version of the same book, I do not know which one is better read:
https://librivox.org/the-problems-of-philosophy-by-bertrand-russell/


2. Another one from Russell is "A free man's worship", which has been recorded 4 times I think:

https://librivox.org/modern-essays-by-christopher-morley/
https://librivox.org/librivox-short-nonfiction-collection-vol-002/
https://librivox.org/short-nonfiction-collection-vol-048-by-various/
https://librivox.org/mysticism-and-logic-and-other-essays-by-bertrand-russell/


3. In a complete different vein, If you wish I could search some poetry in French from one of the 9 compilation de poèmes volumes that Ezwa coordinates and reads. There must be several about spirituality.

Regards,

Basquetteur
