Macbeth Goes Digital: Folger Shakespeare Library Launches Digital Texts

“This past Thursday, the Folger Shakespeare Library launched Folger Digital Texts, a platform with easily searchable digital editions of 12 of the Bard’s best-known plays. While Shakespeare’s work has been in the public domain for the past few centuries, The Folger Library, according to a press release, hopes that this digitization will “significantly advance digital humanities research into the works of Shakespeare and other writers of his time.” Folger’s new platform allows users to download both PDFs of the plays and the source code of the texts. The goal here, like that of other new programs such as Rijksstudio, is to allow users to reuse and remix.”
