Page history last edited by Alison Spencer 8 years, 8 months ago

Victorian texts added to this page should NOT be fiction, poetry, or drama. There are many useful sites that are providing full-texts of literature, and the storage space of this wiki is not sufficient for these types of texts to be added here. Instead, texts on this page should be texts ABOUT literature: book reviews, essays in periodicals on literary trends, Letters to the Editor commenting on a particular literary text or public appearance by a literary figure, letters or journal entries of famous authors...and so on.


To make this process easier, the Directions for Adding Pages to this site will open in a second window of your browser.  In brief, you will have to both create the page and properly archive it so that you, your teacher, your peers, and others who come to use this site, can locate it again.  Please follow the directions carefully.
