Folger Shakespeare Library, Washington Dc announces new online resource:
Shakespeare's Plays from Folger Digital Texts
Twelve of Shakespeare’s most widely-read and widely-taught plays are now available through Folger Digital Texts, a free online resource based on the Folger Editions, the leading Shakespeare texts used in American classrooms.
Users can read the plays online, download PDFs for offline reading, search for keywords within a single play or the whole corpus, and navigate by act, scene, and line. The remainder of the works and poems will be released throughout 2013.
The coded text is offered as a free download for noncommercial use and can be used as the groundwork for digital Shakespeare research projects, app development, and other projects.
Folger Digital Texts is a companion to the Folger Shakespeare Library print editions and e-books, published by Simon and Schuster and edited by Barbara Mowat and Paul Werstine, which include essays, glosses, notes, and illustrations from the Folger collection.
