>> Free audiobook of The Red Badge of Courage +accents+reading aloud
>>
>> By Kestrell
>>
>> Audiobooks.org
>> http://www.audiobooks.org
>>
>> is currently offering a free download of _The Red Badge of Courage_. It 
>> also has links to other audiobook resources on the Net, like
>>
>> BBC - Voices
>> http://www.bbc.co.uk/voices/#startcontent
>>
>> which is a Web site that maps and archives audio recordings of different 
>> slang and accents from around the UK, plus other fun items, like an 
>> article on how Vikings influenced the West Yorkshire accent. Yes, I 
>> really do think accents are this interesting and um, hot: Christopher 
>> Eccleston's accent in the first season Dr. Who was definitely one of the 
>> reasons I preferred his incarnation of the Doctor.
>>
>> Speaking of hot voices, I have been listening to a CD full of audio 
>> recordings of Orson Welles which I bought from EarthStation1.com
>> http://www.earthstation1.com
>>
>> The CD includes a couple of hundred recordings, including the Mercury 
>> Theater radio plays, The Shadow and the Third Man performances, a 
>> conversation between Orson Welles and H. G. Wells, and Orson Welles doing 
>> odd bits like reading John Donne poems. That last is really electrifying, 
>> as Welles moves from a reading of one of the love sonnets to a very 
>> passionate reading of the sonnet that includes the line
>>
>> "Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind;
>> and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for 
>> thee."
>>
>> After googling for the poem, I realized that the beginning part is often 
>> abridged in poetry anthologies, because this part was only vaguely 
>> familiar to me:
>>
>> "all mankind is of one author and is one volume; when one man dies, one 
>> chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better 
>> language
>> ; and every chapter must be so translated. God employs several 
>> translators; some pieces are translated by age, some by sickness, some by 
>> war, some by justice
>> ; but God's hand is in every translation, and his hand shall bind up all 
>> our scattered leaves
>> again for that library where every book shall lie open to one another."
>>
>> You can read
