For anyone interested... the British Library have launched a new website section called Discovering Literature (http://www.bl.uk/romantics-and-victorians) that offers the opportunity to, 'Discover 1,200 Romantic and Victorian literary treasures, new insights by 60 experts, 25 documentary films, 30 inspirational teachers’ notes and more'.

It's a fabulous resource... careful you don't fall in! :read:

...This is terrible. That website is basically a massive collection of things I studied to get my English degree, as my concentration was British Literature.

HOW AM I GOING TO GET WORK DONE NOW? I'LL BE THERE ALL THE TIME!

Thanks!

With these links, you guys have filled up my afternoon itinerary. Looks like I won't be going to the bookstore today. :)

Edit-Add - From the OP's link, I clicked over to "Alice in Wonderland." It's awesome! Illustrations and all that! Outstanding stuff and many thanks.
