Romantic Circles Web Site

This is to announce a new web site for research, Romantic Circles: Byron, Keats, the Shelleys and Their Contemporaries. Its prototype can be found at the following URL:

According to the editors, Romantic Circles is organized as a meta-resource that will be openended, collaborative, and porous—maintaining and encouraging many potential links to other sites on the Web. As currently conceived, the site will be divided into three main entities: Electronic Editions, Scholarly Resources, and Critical Exchange. The last of these will include a real-time, interactive MOO, the Villa Diodati.

Two general principles will guide the development of the site: “We will value quality over quantity, mounting only resources produced and maintained according to high scholarly standards; and we will give priority to innovative, creatively-conceived resources that take advantage of the electronic medium in ways that could not be duplicated easily in print. We invite you to visit the site, read the prospectus, and see what we and our co-editors have planned for the coming months. Romantic Circles will be formally launched in November, to coincide with the NASSR conference in Boston. Until then, users are welcome to watch the site develop as we construct it and to try out features as they become available, including our NASSR ’96 Conference pages.” [Neil Fraistat, Steve E. Jones, and Donald H. Reiman, General Editors; and Carl Stahmer, Design and Technical Editor.]
