Plays

Open Source Shakespeare

We have a list of plays marked up in XML using a simple schema. For those of you who participated in Culture Hack Scotland in May 2012, this is the same schema which we used to provide the Macbeth markup for that event. All plays have been processed from the data available at Open Source Shakespeare.

Perseus

We also recommend the XML plays available through the Perseus Shakespeare Collection.
These are marked up in TEI, and can be downloaded by following the link to a particular play, and then clicking on the inconspicuous XML version link at the very bottom of the page, underneath the Creative Commons logo.

There are also supplementary Renaissance texts.

These can all be addressed directly using XPath.
