Here's the Third Poet, 1:11,
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/authorsfarce_3rdpoet_3_128kb.mp3


And a question about Dash's part: Asked about a rhyme for "wind," he answers,
"Why then you may use any that end in Ord, or And or End. I am never to exact, if the two last Letters are alike, it will do very well." It's definitely written as Ord, but either Mr. Dash is slapdash enough so he isn't observing his own rule or this ought to be Ond not Ord. Which way should I read it? :hmm:

I think you make a good case for "Ond".

Thanks, Todd

well done, Joanna and PL ok right away. I can see the poets all sitting in a tavern and talking important business over a glass of wine. :mrgreen:

thanks

and thank you, Jim. A dutiful manservant here :thumbs: even though also a bit of a rogue :lol: nicely characterized

Only two small corrections needed:

> you forgot to mention your name in the voice credit "read by Jim Locke"

> at 0:50: (p. 20) "Luckless" – I had a hard time finding why you included this line. I suspect it's the line "Jack whispers Luckless" actually you can cut this out. It's not that he whispers this name, it's an old way of saying that Jack whispers "to" Luckless. So there would be some whispering going on on stage between those two, but nothing you have to say here, this will be done by the narrator.

thank you

Sonia

:lol: their way of hashing out poems is simply hilarious. Ah, the author was quite biting with sarcasm here. :mrgreen:

Excellent job, Joanna, I liked the character you gave Dash. Also nothing missing as far as I can see, so: PL ok right away.

Thank you

Sonia

Act 1 assembled. Missing a buncha voice credits, and must groom before PL.

Thanks, Todd
