Hi leni, I have uploaded my section.

I did not run any sort of effects on it, mostly because I was not certain where to begin and Audacity has a dizzying array of them. If there is anything that I need to do to the file, please let me know. Thank you!

Just a quick question about the Chatterton. Most of the poems are written in his idiosyncratic pseudo-medieval style; in many cases, the scansion doesn't actually work when words are pronounced in what would be proper fashion for Middle English. Is it all right if I "hybridize" the pronunciation in a way that seems to me to work with the meter, and to strike a balance between faithfulness and comprehensibility to a modern ear? My instinct is to be flexible about this, since he was basically making up words and spellings as he went, but I wanted to check with others about whether I should be stricter.

Makes perfect sense to me, Amy! Feel free to do so. :)
