Verse miscellanies showcase the enormous diversity of literary culture in the eighteenth century. The Digital Miscellanies Index opens up the contents of these miscellanies like never before, making it possible to trace the evolution of collections and the transmission of poems across the eighteenth century.
In partnership with Bodleian Digital Library Systems and Services, we have developed a new search interface that opens up new ways of searching and browsing the Index. Click here to explore the new features.
Launched in 2013, the Digital Miscellanies Index was created by a team of researchers and developers at the University of Oxford, led by Abigail Williams and Jennifer Batt, with funding from The Leverhulme Trust. Abigail Williams and Carly Watson are now leading a second Leverhulme-funded project to develop the Index and undertake substantial new research into eighteenth-century cultures of writing and reading.
