Completion of The Works of Elizabeth Barrett Browning: A Five-Volume Scholarly Edition, with Web Enhancements

Completion of a scholarly print edition of the works of Elizabeth Barrett Browning and continued work on materials designated for electronic presentation. (36 months)

We are preparing a new edition of the works of the influential Victorian poet, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, in a scholarly edition with web enhancements. Our aim is to present EBB's works in accurate, accessible texts, annotated with information about context, composition, and publication. The last complete edition of her works was published in 1900. Moreover, we are developing TEI-encoded materials for the UND Digital Humanities Collections featuring materials by and about EBB, notably a collection of significantly revised poems and also difficult to transcribe unpublished poems and prose. When our edition is published, people will for the first time be able to read in one place accurate texts of all of EBB's literary works (we've identified more than 475 separate items). Scholars will have a reliable foundation to enable them to better analyze and interpret her works. All interested readers will thus meet a thoughtful, passionate writer who exemplifies the engaged intellectual.
