The Everlasting Man by G. K. Chesterton (1874 - 1936).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-everlasting-man-by-g-k-chesterton/

This book needs a preliminary note that its scope be not misunderstood. The view suggested is historical rather than theological, and does not deal directly with a religious change which has been the chief event of my own life; and about which I am already writing a more purely controversial volume. It is impossible, I hope, for any Catholic to write any book on any subject, above all this subject, without showing that he is a Catholic; but this study is not specially concerned with the differences between a Catholic and a Protestant. Much of it is devoted to many sorts of Pagans rather than any sort of Christians; and its thesis is that those who say that Christ stands side by side with similar myths, and his religion side by side with similar religions, are only repeating a very stale formula contradicted by a very striking fact. To suggest this I have not needed to go much beyond matters known to us all; I make no claim to learning; and have to depend for some things, as has rather become the fashion, on those who are more learned. As I have more than once differed from Mr. H. G. Wells in his view of history, it is the more right that I should here congratulate him on the courage and constructive imagination which carried through his vast and varied and intensely interesting work; but still more on having asserted the reasonable right of the amateur to do what he can with the facts which the specialists provide. (Prefatory Note)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39076005331298&view=1up&seq=7

    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!

This text has a few editions and the linked hathitrust version was the first edition, published in 1925 (which hathitrust thinks is PD), not the more common 1926 version. If I'm not allowed to do a 1925 book yet, feel free to delete immediately!

Would be great! I'm not expecting to do more about a chapter a day though so it should take 2 weeks.

PL Notes, Chapter 3:

@22:38 repeat "Was the totem a thing like the British lion or the British bulldog."
@31:12 repeat "That is what I mean by saying the history of....etc."

Please remember to post in the project thread when a chapter is ready. I only saw this one by chance. :-)

Can do. Some people prefer to use their reader sections and not to get bothered by messages on the forum but I'm happy to inform you when each section is up. :)

Section 3 is ready for spot check and section 4 is up.

I use the forum posts for my main notifications. I do look at my reader/pl page sometimes, but just as a backup to make sure I didn't forget something. :-)

3 and 4 are PL OK!
