Multilingual Online Sources Of Texts

The Project has identified many online repositories of literary texts online, which are grouped here for your reference.
Of course these may not be online forever and we cannot be responsible if they disappear!
The links were checked in August 2015.

Some of these sources have brief reviews from Language teachers in italics.

If you find resources you find useful, please consider adding a review and / or contributing your exploitation ideas to the Project via the Home page.
