Off-Syllabus Texts

These are large websites that reproduce literary texts. You can also search the internet for the title of the work you're interested in; put the title of the work in quotation marks to search it as an exact phrase.

  • Project Gutenberg - Thousands of free books. Useful site for when you are looking for a specific work or author. Not great for browsing.
  • Internet Archive - Over 8 millions books available for free. Again, not great for browsing but useful for specific searches.
  • Poetry Foundation - Browse or search for poems and/or poets.
