English Verse Drama Full-Text Database

Description: The English Verse Drama Full-Text Database complements the English Poetry Database in providing access to more than 15,000 works by around 450 identified authors and 230 anonymous authors. The database spans from the late thirteenth century to the close of the nineteenth century. The selection of works has been based on those given in the New Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature (Cambridge University Press, 1969-1972). All of the texts have been encoded in SGML preserving various strutural and presentational features of the texts. The database can be searched by word, phrase, collocations using Boolean operators or the SGML tags. English Verse Drama has been combined with English Prose Drama and made available through Chadwyck-Healey's Literature Online service as English Drama.

Requirements: PC running Windows 3.1 with at least 8MB RAM and CD-ROM drive. Access to Literature Online requires an Internetworked computer with a graphical Web browser.
