Vanity - Amazing Website for Literary Freepers!
Bartleby Books ^

Posted on 11/23/2001 1:44:54 PM PST by KantianBurke

I stumbled across this site recently and suffice to say, next to FR, its incredible. They've got almost every important Western author and poet that I can think of. The Bible? Its there! Shakespeare's complete works? Its there! And it all FREE!

lit·er·ar·y (lt-rr) adj.
1) Of, relating to, or dealing with literature:
literary criticism.
2) Of or relating to writers or the profession of
literature: literary circles.
3) Versed in or fond of literature or learning.

Okay, okay, I must have missed JimRobs directive that sarcasm, irony, pathos and self-depricating humor were no longer acceptable here on FR. I hereby stipulate for the record that I knew the meaning of literary and have even been known to pore over the occasional tome.

Henceforth I shall employ humor, to quote the Raven, "Nevermore".

If you buy that one, I have some choice oceanfront property in Wyoming for sale.

Thanks, but all the same, I prefer my books and documents medium-rare.

With a Caesar salad on the side.

All kidding aside, thanks. Bookmarked!

I did not know that. And they say you can`t learn anything on the Net. I know what a Zoomie is though I was in the USAF.

It is a great site. It not only has the "Five Foot Shelf" of Harvard Classics, but over two dozen reference books, Oxford Anthologies of Poetry, collections of quotations, the inaugural addresses of the presidents, the books Theodore Roosevelt wrote, and much else besides.

If you like Project Avalon's collection of historical documents, make sure you check out The Liberty Library of Constitutional Classics, The Founders' Constitution, The Making of America, OKU Historical Documents, LOC Searchable Historical Documents, and A Century of Lawmaking. Not light reading, but useful if you ever get in an argument about government or history. American history fans may also find some surprises at The Atlantic Magazine's archives, if they look around a little.
