The Dirge of the Sea-Children, and Other Poems, by Kenneth Rand (1891 - 1918)

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-dirge-of-the-sea-children-and-other-poems-by-kenneth-rand/

The first of three volumes of poetry published by Yale English literature graduate Kenneth Rand before his untimely death in 1918 by the Great Influenza epidemic as he was trying to serve his country in WW1. Many of the poems within this first volume were reprints of Rand's contributions to the various magazines available during his time at Yale, including the Yale Literary Magazine where he served as chairman of the board. Some of the notable poems within this collection of his early works include The Crows, Lover's Dawn, The Prodigal, and Straw-Death. (Summary by Stefan Von Blon)

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded 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!

I can set this up for you.

All set.
You might want to shorten the file name.
Do you have a DPL setup?

Hi Lynnet.

Thank you for being the MC for this project. I have shortened the file name by your request. I currently do not have a DPL setup.

A suggested edit for "The Red Romance" #11, first line ends with "quays" which is pronounced like "keys". I'm mentioning it because it affects the rhyme, but it's totally optional!

Otherwise, all sections are PL OK!

Very well done, Stefan!
