Selected Poems, by Luis Muñoz Marín (1898 - 1980)

This project is now in the catalogue. All audio files can be found on our catalogue page:
https://librivox.org/selected-poems-by-luis-munoz-marin/


Volunteers outside the USA: Luis Muñoz Marín died in 1980. This person's work may still be protected by copyright in countries where copyright duration is determined by the author's death date. In Europe this is 70 years; in Canada it is 70 years for authors who died after 1971; and in Australia it is 70 years for authors who died after 1955.
Luis Muñoz Marín was the first elected governor of Puerto Rico as well as a poet. This collection includes poems published from 1920 to 1924 in magazines such as The Smart Set, The Measure and Poetry. (Summary by Newgatenovelist)
Source text (please read only from this text!): multiple HathiTrust links

Target completion date:

Prooflistening level: Standard
Prospective PLs, please see the Guide for Proof-listeners.

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!

Note to a prospective DPL: these poems are ready to upload. They're quite short - he wrote very concise, borderline Modernist (in the English sense) verses that in a couple of places almost have hints of koans, so the overall run time isn't that long. That doesn't mean I want or need a speedy PL, but just so you know what to expect!


Anne will MC.
Anne: I'll enter the links as with the Darío, but just as backup they're also below. If you just want a short bio blurb for the catalogue:
Luis Muñoz Marín was a senator and the first democratically elected governor of Puerto Rico. He also published poetry in magazines in the 1920s.

All yours. It's hot here today and I am not a hot weather person, your Hispanic poet is just waiting for me to take the last step.

Thank you, Anne! Please do take your time. They'll all hit the catalogue eventually, it doesn't need to be today. :)

Hi,

May I be the DPL for this project? I see that it's already recorded and I'm able to listen today and tomorrow.

Hi,

I've PL'ed all the sections and they're all very well read and all set, except Section 8 Revelation which is in stereo, not mono.Once that's tweaked to mono, Anne can proceed to cataloguing. (waves to Anne in Australia)

Thanks!

My goodness, thank you! Also, thank you so much for catching that. I have NO IDEA how I managed to export in stereo, but it should be fixed now. Sorry about that!

Thank you so much, Betty! Both for being so very, very fast and for being patient with that silly stereo error. It's been lovely to work with you!
