The Complete Works of George Herbert

Preparation of a digital edition of 17th-century poet George Herbert's Complete Works. (36 months)

This project expands The Digital Temple, our edition of George Herbert's English verse, to include all of his known writings. Complete Works includes high-resolution images of the earliest witnesses (first editions, all manuscripts) to Herbert's prose works and poems not in The Temple; TEI-encoded transcriptions that preserve original spellings and orthography while providing modern spellings in the code base; edited reading texts; translations where appropriate; extensive critical apparatus; and a user interface with which to navigate these materials, including a search-and-retrieval portal that takes advantage of the rich encoding. The edition will be a valuable resource for humanities scholars and educators -- literary critics and bibliographers, teachers and students of seventeenth-century literature, historians, and general readers -- who will enjoy unprecedented access to the artifacts captured here in digital form, alongside extensive commentary and other expert apparatus.
