Abstract:

Web Feet summary: In its original incarnation, the Perseus Project focused almost exclusively on the classics of ancient Greece and Rome. It has exploded in size and scope under the direction of Gregory Crane, its editor-in-chief, and is now known as the Perseus Digital Library. The site covers not only ancient Greece and Rome but also Egyptian and Ptolemaic papyri, the English Renaissance, and memories of early America. Despite its enormity, this is a site that should not be overlooked because it contains perhaps the largest collection of ancient Greek texts that is to be found anywhere.

The site, a creation of the Classics Department at Tufts University, has within its archives the texts of such classics as Homer's Odyssey and Aeschylus' Agamemnon in both English and the original Greek, as well as special exhibits that help us to understand what life was like during the period in which these classics were written.
