Hi mlee, Welcome to the nonfiction collection! :) Could you please do me a favor and post the title of your selection, the author's name, and the source from which you read? I'll need those things for proof listening and cataloging. Many thanks,

Sue

PM, 9/13/17

Edit: October 3, 2017 In my capacity as book coordinator, I am postponing inclusion of this selection in the nonfiction collection until we have the necessary information about the source from which it was read. The pm sent on 9/13/2017 has not been opened. This selection will be welcome in a future volume, once we have the required information.

Of the Devil’s Head in the Valley Perilous. And of the Customs of Folk in diverse Isles that be about in the Lordship of Prester John by Sir John Mandeville 1300-1371 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Mandeville

This could belong in nonfiction since it was used as such a work or it could be assigned to short story. I'll start with you Sue.
The Travels of Sir John Mandeville by Sir John Mandeville
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/782

https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/snf052_devilshead_mandeville_cc_128kb.mp3

17.01

Craig

The name might be shortened to Devil's Head and Customs of Folk in Diverse Isles

By aid of translations into many other languages, the work acquired extraordinary popularity. Despite the extremely unreliable and often fantastical nature of the travels it describes, it was used as a work of reference—Christopher Columbus, for example, was heavily influenced by both this work and Marco Polo's earlier Travels.[

Thanks, Soupy, as you say some of these very early accounts of foreign lands influenced explorers such as Columbus, and as such, I would characterize them as "historical documents"--suitable for inclusion in the nonfiction collection. Interestingly, we don't have Sir John Mandeville in the catalog yet, so your reading is doubly appreciated. :)

Thanks, BT, for introducing me (and I hope many other listeners) to Dallas Lore Sharp, a most enjoyable nature writer with whom I was not familiar. Sharp really captures the spirit of fall. I particularly identified with his description of burs sticking indiscriminately to cows' tails or clothing! :)
PL OK.

Hi MaryAnn, Thanks for your contribution to vol. 52! :) I'm looking forward to listening a little later today. It looks as if A.C. Bradley is new to the LibriVox catalog, and that's exciting:

"A.C. Bradley, in full Andrew Cecil Bradley (born March 26, 1851, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England—died September 2, 1935, London), literary critic and preeminent Shakespearean scholar of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His Shakespearean Tragedy (1904), praised not only for penetrating analysis but also for its lucid prose style, is recognized as a classic of modern Shakespeare criticism."

Wow... A.C. Bradley's lecture, which I gather was given on the occasion of his ascendence to the position of "professor of poetry" at Oxford was as technical a read as I've had occasion to proof listen in a long time. MaryAnn, you did a fine job with this difficult text! :) I'm only going to point out one small slip, and that only in the spirit of Bradley's remark that "in true poetry it is, in strictness, impossible to express the meaning in any but its own words, or to change the words without changing the meaning." The slip occurred right at the end at 49:20:50... Leading up to this point, Bradley writes: "About the best poetry, and not only the best, there floats an atmosphere of infinite suggestion. The poet speaks to us of one thing, but in this one thing, there seems to lurk the secret of all... Those who are susceptible to this effect of poetry find it... in a child's song by Christina Rossetti about a mere crown of wind-flowers..." Well, you read "wild flowers," which is probably what I would have read myself; but, I think you would agree with me that it's the unexpected image of "wind flowers" that touches the poetic imagination here.

Regards,
