Here's where you can access the texts: Also, I've shared my Voyant visualizations of some of the texts on the wiki:


From Michelle:

"In honor of Open Access Week, and motivated by a recent mock keynote debate, "A Matter of Scale," presented by Matt Jockers and Julia Flanders as part of the Boston Area Days of Digital Humanities Conference, I present for exploration, re-use and re-mixing outside of their native interfaces TEI (P4 & P5) and plain text files of the following e-text collections published by the Indiana University (IU) Libraries:

These files are made available for use under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 (CC BY-NC 3.0) license and can be downloaded or forked from githib,, which includes a detailed readme file that you should, um, read, about this initiative.  

I encourage you to share your uses (intended, past, and future) of this data on our repository's wiki space: <> so we can track your magic."
