The World's Best Poetry, Volume 9: Tragedy and Humor (Part 2) by Various ( - ).
This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project https://librivox.org/the-worlds-best-poetry-volume-9-tragedy-and-humor-part-2-by-various/
The ninth of ten volumes of poetry edited by Canadian poet laureate Bliss Carman (1861-1929). This collection, the second of two parts, includes a broad and diverse selection of light and comic verse on miscellaneous topics, including religion, the laboring classes, romance, government, food, the human body, animals, the natural world, and everyday hobbies. Also included are parodies and imitations, ingenuities and oddities, and nonsense verse, all using inventive techniques such as puns, wordplay, alliteration, doggerel, adventurous rhyming, and dialect. ( Tomas Peter)
  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.

Thanks, Larry, but like the other volumes, this will be done by a sextet of readers who have already chosen their poems or will have them assigned. :) We do hope you'll listen to the final product, though!

As we await the MW, we welcome back Sonia, Craig, Leanne, Jason and Foon! And, I presume, Anthony as our DPL! :D Can't wait to get started everyone. We've had a longer-than-normal break, so we have to get re-accustomed to the process. :P Sonia will breakdown the details about roles and DRs after she sets up the MW. Maybe by the end of tomorrow she can post the official assignments, too.

so guys, here I am with the MW. I'm so excited. There are plenty very funny poems in this selection.

I already moved us over to Readers Found, so there will be no more confusion that this project is full. And yes, Anthony confirmed that he will stay with us till the bitter end (so to speak :mrgreen: )

I know you are all waiting for your assigned poetry list and are only thinking "get on with it" :lol: just give me a few minutes to write them all down in a separate list... stay tuned

Filling out the MW ever so slowly and noticed a slight problem: the author of "From 'Love Sonnets of a Hoodlum'" appears to have died in 1959. This is Leanne's claim, but I don't believe it's PD yet in Europe. I'm afraid it will have to be given to either myself or Jason, as everyone else is in Europe. :?

oops, this happens so rarely...good thing you noticed. Would you take it and if so, which ones would you offer in return, so maybe Leanne can choose from one of them.
