Multilingual Short Works Collection 029 - Poetry & Prose, by Various
This is our 29th collection of short pieces, poetry or prose, fiction and non-fiction, in several different languages (except standard English) as listed below. All chosen and recorded by Librivox volunteers. (Summary by ToddHW)
Since the current collection (028) is full and cataloged, here is another one. Kazbek will be BC, I will be MC, and Sonia will be DPL again.

This collection is for short works, in any language except (modern) English. This can include poetry but also prose, fiction as well as non-fiction.

Feel free to choose any work which is in the public domain. If you're unsure what we mean by 'public domain', please read this explanation. Try to stick to works that run less than 60 minutes.

Please follow the instructions in this post carefully. :) There is no need to "sign-up" before recording; please remember that you should choose a work that is Public Domain in your country AND in an edition that was published before 1926 to be PD in the US; if you are unsure about anything, please post here and ask before recording!

Everyone can contribute as many recordings as he/she wants.

It's OK to submit readings in English (English being a language, I figure), but as there are plenty of other places to put those, let's limit them to special cases such as interesting regional dialects or accents.

If you are interested to see what has been done previously, check the previous Multilingual Collections in our catalog (but we welcome multiple versions of the same work).

Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

古詩十九首 Gushi shijiu shou (Nineteen Old Poems), by Tong Xiao (501 - 531)
Nineteen Old Poems (simplified Chinese: 古诗十九首; traditional Chinese: 古詩十九首; pinyin: Gǔshī Shíjiǔ Shǒu), also known as Ku-shih shih-chiu shou is an anthology of Chinese poems, consisting of nineteen poems which were probably originally collected during the Han Dynasty. These nineteen poems were very influential on later poetry, in part because of their use of the five-character line (Chinese: 五言诗; pinyin: wǔ yán shī).[1] The dating of the original poems is uncertain,[2] though in their present form they can be traced back to about 520 CE, when these poems were included in the famous literary analogy Wen Xuan, a compilation of literature attributed to the Liang Crown Prince Xiao Tong. The Nineteen Old Poems have been supposed to date mainly from the second century CE.[3] The gushi, or old style, poetry developed as an important poetic form of Classical Chinese poetry, in subsequent eras. The authorship of the "Nineteen Old Poems" is anonymous, however there are indications as to the authorship in terms of class and educational status, such as the focus on "the carriages and fine clothing, the mansions and entertainments of the upper classes", together with the literary references to the Shijing.[4] One of the tendencies of these poems is towards a "tone of brooding melancholy."

Hi Ling,

Welcome to LibriVox! :) This source is the public domain, and the text is short enough to be included in this collection, so you can start recording it after your 1-minute test has been approved. Please follow the format for the intro/outro and filename given in the first post of this thread (rather than the instructions in your message, which are for a stand-alone solo project).

Since this is your first recording, let me know under what name (real or nickname) you would like to be credited in the catalog. We can also include a link to your personal website or blog, if you have one.

Added: Also, here's the Chinese version of our "disclaimer", if you'd like to read the intro and outro in Chinese:

https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/LibriVox_disclaimer#Chinese

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks!
Michael

Great, thank you, Ling! May I ask why you split your recording into two separate files? We accept files up to 72 minutes in length, so generally these would be combined in a single file.

Thank you, Michael! For some reason (a fleeting idea), I thought that separating into shorter sections would be more convenient for readers to locate poems. But you are right, this book is too short to divide. I will combine the two into one, and upload it again.

Ok, great. Then I'll also mention two other technical points: the filename should contain only lowercase letters and we ask readers to tell us the duration (mm:ss) for every upload. :)

Thanks,
Michael

wow Bernd, I really enjoyed this story and the ending was quite cool. Another approach of what really happened in paradise :lol: Very interesting.

The text itself is perfectly ok. I was wondering though whether the story is not a bit long for the short disclaimer...in the first post you can see that only for sections under 500 words we can use the short disclaimer. I would think this one is longer :hmm: So we need the full intro.

Thanks, a great start to the new collection.

Michael, will you be able to PL the Chinese poem ? Or maybe you could PM Yuqing or Tina again to help out, like in the previous projects.
