Some Articles About Mark Twain by Various .

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/some-articles-about-mark-twain-by-various/
"Samuel Langhorne Clemens", "Mark Twain At Home", "Youth of Mark Twain" & "Mark Twain Gossip"

Published in the June 16, 1888 edition of "Literature - An Illustrated Weekly Magazine" (Vol. 1, No. 17) these four, early magazine articles about Mark Twain fill in and analyze areas of Twain's persona for the first time. "Mark Twain At Home" was originally published in the London, England "World". ( John Greenman)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=hvd.hxpmqs;view=1up;seq=7
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): wordperfect



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

John,

I can MC this for you.

MW is set up and tested.

Can we shorten the title for this project to "Some Articles about Mark Twain" and authors to "by Various" ?

Your summary states 3 articles, but you have 4 sections in the MW ??

Do you need a DPL?

If so, I'd enjoy this project.

Many thanks,

Philip

John:

Section 1 is very nicely read. I have a few notes:

at 0:57 I heard "leading role": I expected "leading place"
at 3:18 I heard "a local editor": I expected local editor"
at 5:57 I heard "a trump abroad": I expected "a tramp abroad"

Great job! (I'm not yet able to update the MW--but I did want to get this section completed).

Many thanks,

Philip

Thanks Philip!!
Excellent !!!
I've sent in the corrected file

You'll note, from time to time, that I'll make an editorial change (like changing "always" to "already" in the last correction)

And I have NO IDEA where that "Trump" came from!!!! a mind-fart, no doubt!
