Work on the Variorum Edition of John Donne's poetry and continued development of the DigitalDonne electronic archive. (36 months)

This project represents a major phase of work on /The Variorum Edition of the Poetry of John Donne/ (Indiana UP, 1995--), an 11-vol. research tool that combines a newly edited critical text of Donne's poems with a comprehensive variorum commentary. Further development of the electronic archive DigitalDonne ( ), which supports the /Variorum/, will also be carried out under the auspices of this grant.
