A digital repository of English literature that includes full texts from the medieval to the Restoration periods with subject-specific sections devoted to religious writers, Renaissance drama, Metaphysical poets, and the Cavalier poets. Each entry includes a collection of resources including links to biographical material, texts, essays and other material.
The site also includes an extensive search function and an encylopedia that provides context for the literature.
The Kit Marlowe Project is a digital space designed to introduce undergraduates with diverse majors to project-driven, research-based learning, and digital humanities practices in the context of studying one of Elizabethan England’s most compelling literary figures. As one of Shakespeare’s most famous contemporaries, Christopher Marlowe was a poet, playwright, and likely spy; his friends called him “Kit” and so do we. The site has been created so that students may curate an open-source collection of Marlowe’s works, contribute exhibits, encyclopedia, and bibliography entries, plus contribute to cultural preservation efforts by transcribing, encoding, and publishing archival works in an open-access forum. Excepting the About blogs, the Teaching Resources, the Contributor Resources, and the Mini-Archive documentation, all content has been student-generated.
