Hi Carolin!
I just loved doing Flame and Shadow by Sara Teasdale. I would like to do Rivers to the Sea also. I have launched a new solo project. Any assistance is always appreciated.
Many thanks
AnnaLisa

Has The Complete Poetical Works of Edgar Allan Poe been recorded yet? If not, I would love to coordinate it.

Searching the catalog for "poetical works", it doesn't come up: https://librivox.org/search?q=poetical%20works&search_form=advanced
So I'm guessing it hasn't been done yet. ;)

what about here ? https://librivox.org/the-works-of-edgar-allan-poe-raven-edition-volume-5-by-edgar-allan-poe/ we do have all 5 of the series, so you would think that all the poetry would be in it ?

I didn't look into this one but I think that when someone is looking for poetry he won't go looking into the complete works...

Volume 5 holds most of Poe's poetry. It's worth a listen.

There is another collection in the catalog that is read by one person which has 48 or so of the poems.

I've never followed Poe much, always putting it off for some reason. Maybe I'll get to him this winter.

The short 'memoirs' I've seen in collections are pretty interesting. They would be great for the short non-fiction collection.

There is no reason why you shouldn't do it, but you did say "if no one else has done it" so I looked as I remembered the "Raven series" and found them twice, but whether either is the complete works I can't say as you didn't post a link :D

The question was whether "The Complete Poetical Works of Edgar Allan Poe" is in the catalog. It is not.

If one wants to discuss whether the complete poetical works of Edgar Allan Poe are in the catalog, that's another discussion. :lol: One could hunt around and find all of Poe's poems in our catalog, probably, but not in this edition and order, probably - and this would give other readers a chance to record them.

So there's nothing stopping you from coordinating it, bdanzige, IMHO. :)
