Re: solo [ENGLISH] Oscar Wilde Discovers America [1882] by Lloyd Lewis and Henry Justin Smith - vik

Section 7 is PL OK.

I'm not sure if you were thinking of uploading the pdf at some future date, but a couple of pages were omitted at the end of the chapter. It's not a big deal, but I thought I'd mention it.

Section 5 is PL OK. It feels like gossip, hearing about Stoddart and Lippincott at that dinner party more than 130 years ago, but I like it even if it is.

Re: solo [ENGLISH] The Guermantes Way by Marcel Proust - vik

Two notes for section 19 - one pronunciation and one change of tense that I think shifts the meaning a bit. 6.09-6.18 …not that he was not himself in the habit of making scathing references to his Jewish origin, to that side of his ancestry which came from somewhere near Sinai. https://www.lexico.co...

Section 3 is spot PL OK. I'm not moving very quickly, but I am enjoying this. The next section has a pretty good title, too.

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Oscar Wilde Discovers America [1882] by Lloyd Lewis and Henry Justin Smith - vik

Section 2 is spot PL OK. There are four notes for section 3: 23.24-23.31, p. 39, penultimate para of sect 4, omission Sarony took him first in his seal-skin cap, [then bareheaded in his long trousers,] then bareheaded in his knee breeches. 24.00, p. 39, section ‘5’ omitted 32.55-33.03, start second ...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Oscar Wilde Discovers America [1882] by Lloyd Lewis and Henry Justin Smith - vik

I'm not sure what was going on with LV earlier when I couldn't access it, other than that it was having one of its periodic funny fits, but it's meant that I've PLed another chapter. The background on this is really nice - it'll be good for listeners who aren't steeped in Ruskin, the Pre-Raphaelites...

Re: Welcome everybody!

Hello Adrian, and happy new year! You are most welcome here. I hope you will enjoy life on Legamus. There generally aren't that many dramatic readings here, but there is at least one group project in English open (I know because I'm the BC!) and there is quite a lot to choose from if you fancy recor...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Oscar Wilde Discovers America [1882] by Lloyd Lewis and Henry Justin Smith - vik

It's always nice to have a clear run at some recording/editing time, so please do carry on. I want to hear this, but I'll be slow. Another project I'm PLing has been uploaded to the end of the book, so I'll be spending more time on that than with Wilde for the time being. These illustrations are bri...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Oscar Wilde Discovers America [1882] by Lloyd Lewis and Henry Justin Smith

Well, you'd mentioned it in the project that's just wrapped up, so I thought I'd take a look.

No problem about the length. I'm just happy for there to be more audiobooks in the world.

That's fine about the PLing. Onward!

Hi Rob,

Would you like me to DPL again? And if so, what level of PLing would you like?

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Oscar Wilde Twice Defended by Robert Sherard - vik

I'm glad it wasn't just me who was surprised by the depiction of Robbie Ross. I thought when I saw it on the launch pad that he would be strident about defending Wilde, but I hadn't realised that he'd be aiming at nearly anyone who came in his path. This was ever so slightly mad, but I appreciate ha...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Oscar Wilde Twice Defended by Robert Sherard - vik

O my. He called Ernest Dowson a hack! Section 04 is PL OK. I have one note for section 03 that I think changes the meaning: 23.21-23.30 bottom p. 60, ‘not’ added to sentence I would rather [not] believe this, knowing that Harris had no scruples about inserting deliberate forgeries into his text abou...

A couple of notes for section 2. I'm most curious to know what he has to say about Shaw. 24.21-24.34, second half p. 37, repetition …and the foul disease was still la bouteille d’encre – and the foul disease was still la bouteille d’encre – bottle of ink – to the doctors. 39.22-39.25, bottom half p....

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Oscar Wilde Twice Defended by Robert Sherard - vik

I think we're talking about the same thing. I've seen it called scurrilous and crude and all manner of similar things. That seemed a bit one-sided. I've seen only one person I can recall referring to it as a roman a clef, which seems a lot less dismissive. I'd like to read it and make up my own mind...

Re: group [ENGLISH] After Long Silence by William Butler Yeats - jn

Fab! The poem itself is absolutely fine, but could you please trim the opening silence just a wee bit so it's half a second to one second? And if you're able to add tags in whichever software you use, could you please add those? The info for that is near the bottom of the first post. When you upload...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Oscar Wilde Twice Defended by Robert Sherard - vik

Section 1 is PL OK! I'm not surprised the long title confused you. I saw it and thought it augured well for the book, but perhaps not for recording as almost a chapter in itself! No problem about the pronunciations. I understand the to-do list growing at a terrifying pace all too well, and just want...
