RQ-260744-18

The Complete Letters of American Writer Willa Cather

Work on the final stage of an online, open access edition of the complete correspondence of American novelist Willa Cather (1873-1947). (36 months)

We propose to edit American author Willa Cather’s complete correspondence for digital publication on the free and open-access Willa Cather Archive (cather.unl.edu). Thanks to previous NEH support, we are well on our way to completing the first stage of this edition. We are now asking for support to complete the edition so the remaining 1,500 letters--dispersed in over 70 repositories and full of tremendous detail about Cather's life, work, and relationships--can be included. This digital edition will feature texts transcribed and marked up in TEI P5 conformant XML, high-quality digital images of original documents, full multimedia annotations, and innovative search and browsing features including automatically-generated indices of names, titles, and geographic locations. The whole edition will be strengthened by its integration into the Willa Cather Archive, indisputably the central online resource for scholarly study of the author.
