Ward's Shakespeare Statue, Central Park, New York

Welcome to the Perseus Garner, the latest collection in the Perseus Digital Library.

The Garner is a gathering of primary materials from the early modern period in England (commonly called the English Renaissance) and selected secondary materials from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Begun with an electronic edition of the complete works of Christopher Marlowe, it now includes the works of William Shakespeare, important historical sources from the period, and a variety of secondary reference works. Our goal in assembling this collection is to provide scholars, students, and general readers with free access to important documents from the early modern period, many of which are difficult to find outside large research libraries, and to supplement them with helpful scholarship and criticism.
