Webliography for English Studies

Since the earliest days of the web, Professor of English Eric Nye has been compiling links to online resources that may enhance the work done by students of literature within the department.  The links are grouped in a category table for ease of access.  

This web-bibliography, or Webliography, serves as the staging page for Professor Nye's courses.  Students of English are encouraged to visit, and users are welcome to notify Professor Nye of additions or deletions when they find new sites or dead links by emailing
