Great Writers Inspire
Great Writers Inspire is a project which is making a substantial collection of literary themed learning resources available for global reuse. Thousands of resources are available through the site, including audio and video lectures and short talks, downloadable electronic texts and ebooks, and background contextual resources. Many of these resources have been specially created by the University of Oxford for this website. [...]
Many of the resources have been grouped into collections by Writer or Theme. More inspiration can be found by exploring the Approaches to Literature section or by following one of our Tours: History of our Literature or Women's Writing. [...]
