Project Description:

The Eighteenth-Century Poetry Archive — ECPA — is a collaborative digital archive and research project devoted to the poetry of the long eighteenth century. ECPA is edited and annotated collaboratively and builds on the electronic texts created by the Text Creation Partnership from Gale’s Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO-TCP).  The main objective of the Eighteenth-Century Poetry Archive is to develop into a lively, collaborative workspace in support of the teaching, study, and research of eighteenth-century poetry. To this end, ECPA is committed to the creation of an open-access digital archive of high-quality primary and secondary sources. ECPA comprises two central components, the digital collection of richly encoded full-texts and a research project, which focuses on the computationally-assisted analysis of these texts.
