Full-text of English, American and Canadian poetry, prose and dramatic works. Each literature collection has been developed with its own specialist editorial board to advise on the selection of texts and editions. Editorial policies may therefore vary from collection to collection; however, the guiding principles of authority, comprehensiveness and inclusiveness have been applied consistently. The general policy has always been to include either an authoritative collected edition for each author or first editions of individual works as appropriate.
