Digital Editions
This site uses the Folger Shakespeare Library’s digital editions of The Winter’s Tale and King Lear, edited by Barbara Mowat and Paul Werstine and made available for public reuse under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported license. Changes made to the texts include deletion of images, extra spaces between lines, as well as line numbers for every line (we use line numbers for every five lines, instead). All of these modifications were made to make the plays both easier to read for our project as well as to allow them to display on our Drupal site.

Annotator and Annotation Modules: Lacuna Stories v 1.0 (
Some slight modifications were made to both of these modules but only to ensure that the modules would run smoothly on our installation of Drupal. Some of these modifications include changing calls to jQuery as well as the way Reply links were generated on annotations.

The research team would like to acknowledge the invaluable insight, mentorship, support, and encouragement of Dr. Amanda Visconti, Dr. Sarah Connell at the NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks.
