Development of a more interactive database driven website for the Oregon Petrarch Open Book project.

Our goal for the "Oregon Petrarch Open Book," or "OPOB," is to enhance a scholarly database-driven website around Francis Petrarch's fourteenth-century poetry collection, the Canzoniere. Using open source software we intend to build a more flexible and comprehensive structure for our current digital assets and strengthen the groundwork for international collaboration among scholars and institutions around this central work of world literature. In the current iteration of OPOB, a scholar is able to read a poem in the original, examine a Renaissance commentary, compare a series of different translations, analyze contemporary rewritings, and finally, explore multimedia assets associated with the poem. For the tenure of this grant we plan to enhance the functionality of existing software, such as the Compare Tool, by providing multiple moveable containers of selectable content, text, images, audio or video.
