A Weblog for Introduction to Literature ~
IN THE SITE'S OWN WORDS: "The Greek Mythology Link is a new collection
of the Greek myths written and published on line by Carlos Parada, author
of the book Genealogical Guide to Greek Mythology, published in 1993.
The Greek Mythology Link contains texts, images, tables and maps. The mythical
accounts are based exclusively on classical sources.
United States of Poetry
website to accompany the television series. A great resource containing
brief author bios and full text of the poems heard on the video. Excellent
for supplementing your viewing of the video because it gives you a chance
to study the poems you like best more closely.
An excellent web resource to supplement you're reading of "Bartleby
the Scrivener" by Herman Melville. The team who put together this
site did a great job, including two text versions of the story, one hyperlinked
including explanatory notes, one the original as it appeared in Putnam's
Monthly Magazine in 1853. Also included are scores of interesting
images relating to references in the story, and plenty of bibliographic
and textual references for serious researchers. Fun browsing, and maybe
Other Bartleby sites of interest:
the Scrivener, A Story of Wall Street: An Interactive Version
Paul Ford's presentation of the story on Ftrain.com
Compact Bedford Introduction to Literature, 5th ed.
by Michael Myers
This is the new companion Web site that accompanies your textbook, The
Compact Bedford Introduction to Literature, Fifth Edition. Check
this out for some useful online resources, like a glossary of literary
terms, visual images, audio poetry clips, and further materials for
the authors treated by your text in depth. When you explore the online
resources, you'll find they're practically limitless! Defintely recommended.
Multnoma County Library
Excellent compendium of literature related sites on the Internet. Although
compiled for high school students in the Portland, Oregon area, this site
is useful to anyone studying literature in college as well. For instance,
I found the Author Links page, listed below, right here.
Nothing fancy here, just a bunch of no-nonsense links to over a hundred
author pages apparently compiled courtesy of Wessex Books and Records.
I checked out a few links, including a great one for J.D. Salinger, to
test the site and was amazed at the wealth of information gathered there.
A not to be missed resource.
Another no-nonsense collection of links to on-line versions of classic
short stories. It's truly an amazing collection--bookmark it for a rainy
day. You never know when you'll want a searchable version of one of these
classic short stories, or just something substantive to read once in a
while besides email.
You can send
or suggest a link for the
weblog if you happen to come
across an interesting site
during your travels on the web.
Just contact me, let
me know the
name of the site and the url,
I'll look into it.
