British Literature ENGL 2322 - Carlo - Fall 2020: Books/E-books/Media

Finding Books/E-Books/Media/Free Books

ACC has a wide variety of books, electronic books, and audiovisual materials on British literature and related subjects. Many, if not all, of these texts are located in the public domain. I've add those resources as well. 

Free Resources

If a book has entered into the public domain, it is free! While your professor wants you to read specific editions of the core texts, it might be helpful to also listen to these texts while reading and/or access other texts for additional assignments.

Project Gutenberg (and some of our databases) provides full-text versions of certain works.

Librivox provides free full-text audio recordings of certain works.

The Folger Shakespeare Library is the preeminent resource of Shakespeare's works. The link includes background information on plays as well as access to entire plays. 

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has a full-text version of The Complete Works of Shakespeare.


A search for "British literature", limited to online resources, yields 614 results in our library catalog. You can narrow from there to specific limiters by adding specific titles or authors. 

Sample electronic resources are listed below. Most of them are streaming videos:
