Project Details

Project Description

Legacy

The goal of the Victorian Women Writers Project is to produce highly accurate transcriptions of works by British women writers of the 19th century, encoded using the Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML). The works, selected with the assistance of the Advisory Board, will include anthologies, novels, political pamphlets, religious tracts, children's books, and volumes of poetry and verse drama. Considerable attention will be given to the accuracy and completeness of the texts, and to accurate bibliographical descriptions of them.

Revived

The Victorian Women Writers Project is a highly-regarded, early electronic text project focusing on works by British women writers of the 19th century that is currently being revived. Migration of texts originally encoded using the Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) following the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines, version P3, to Extensible Markup Language (XML) following the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines, version P5. Prose, poetry and dramas will continue to make up this online collection. (needs Angela golden touch)
