About this collection

This Collection comprises texts ranging from Anglo-Saxon and Middle English manuscript transcriptions to modern novels and short stories. The complete text of Gower's Confessio Amantis is here, as is a large portion of Spenser's Faerie Queene.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Many of the datasets are incomplete; some have not been fully proofread and corrected; in some the vicissitudes of inter-computer and inter-archive transfer over the years have resulted in the loss of some information. The datasets are therefore not of guaranteed quality or accuracy, and you use them entirely at your own risk.

We have (where possible and where known) supplied sources and provenances for the material. You are welcome to contact the LLCC if you think we might be able to provide more information.
