No problems, I'll touch base the week before Christmas if I haven't heard from you.

https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/lecturesharvardclassics_21_eliot_128kb.mp3
An interesting overview of the art of biography. I need to look up some of these and add them to my list for recording.

06:08 I hear "Goath"; Goethe (GER-tha)
06:43 faulty edit in "biographical fragments .. which". I hear a clunk sound of some kind
07:12 I hear "and the dead to live"; text has "live" (which is unhelpful note, I know). The first has a long "i" as in "alive", while the second has a short "i" as in "living". It's the second that is meant.
15:23 (p170) missing clause "without thought of making returns,". Comes before "and without incurring ..." (I suspect your eye skipped from one "without" to the next—it's what I sometimes do.)
25:24 I hear "causatical"; text has "casuistical" (caz-you-IS-ti-cal)
29:52 I hear "that when we regard"; text has "what"
33:50 missed edit. I hear "For myself, if it were if it were necessary …"

Thanks

Thank you!
A couple of notes:
14:24 I hear "… the comic and the tragic, mingle through the ending …"; text has "the comic and the tragic, mingle, though the ending"
29:25 I hear "… relative homogenous"; text has "homogeneous" (note the extra syllable)
31:56 I hear "Here it is possible to represent only a few masterpieces the vast stories of the drama …"; text has "Here it is possible to represent by a few masterpieces the vast stores of the drama …"
38:04 I hear "at court of the marks"; text has "masks" (i.e. masques)

A few notes:
22:48 (p324) I hear “after much dispution”; text has disputation
27:58 (p326) I hear “a question of substinance”; text has subsistence
32:37 (p328) I hear “Questions of justice and equality”; text has equity

A general note to be careful not to edit sentence endings too tightly. One of the tips I was given in acting classes was to allow the text to breathe.

Thank you for the feedback. Changes have been made as outlined above. And I'll definitely take the advice regarding editing too tightly. I'll get the hang of it soon :)

03:08, 06:13, 07:22, 9:27, 10:27 I hear “Go-eth” for Goethe (GER-teh)
08:08 I hear “The smiles of Hugo”; text has “similes”
09:52 gap before “Comparison and Conflict of Opinion” is five seconds. Please reduce.

Optional:
11:46 I hear “classical Goalyaths”; text has “Goliaths”. This is usually pronounced "Goh-LYE-eths".

Interesting fact is I never thought about the pronunciation of and realized that I learned something new :D
