A Wife, by Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751 - 1816)

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/a-wife-by-richard-brinsley-sheridan/
Richard Brinsley Butler Sheridan was an Irish playwright and poet. In this little gem, he turns an intended insult on its head. (Summary by TriciaG)
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!
This week's poem can be found here.

New to recording? Please see our Newbie Guide to Recording for further instructions. A quick guide to our required technical settings can be found here. When you post your file, please tell the BC what name you would like to use in our catalog.

LibriVox recording settings: mono (1 channel), 44100 Hz sample rate, 128 kbps constant bit rate MP3. See the Tech Specs

Begin your reading with the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:
Leave 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning.
A Wife by Richard Brinsley Sheridan, read for librivox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, and/or your location.]
Then read the poem:
Lord Erskine, at women presuming to rail,
Calls a wife "a tin canister tied to one's tail";
And fair Lady Anne, while the subject he carries on,
Seems hurt at his Lordship's degrading comparison.
But wherefore degrading? consider'd aright,
A canister's useful, and polish'd, and bright:
And should dirt its original purity hide,
That's the fault of the puppy to whom it is tied.
At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.
Leave 5 seconds of silence at the end.

Hello Tricia,

Thank you for doing this poem this week! Mine is 0.56:

I am not sure if the forum is just having a few minutes off, but when searching for the open weekly/fortnightly projects the fortnightly project keeps linking back to itself in the catalogue rather than taking me to the project thread. I don't know if that makes a difference at all for you when it comes to cataloguing.

Ah, thanks! I neglected to put the forum URL into the database. :roll:
