Over time we will be adding more prose from manuscripts, notebooks, diaries, and annotated print volumes.

Search tips

  • Leave the search field empty to retrieve all records
  • Use quotation marks to search as "a phrase"
  • Use "+" before a word or phrase to make it required (otherwise results matching only some of your terms may be included)
  • Use "-" before a word or phrase to exclude it
  • Use "OR", "AND", and "NOT" to create advanced boolean logic (use parentheses to disambiguate your expressions)
  • Truncations and wildcards ("*", "?") are supported, except in phrase searches
  • Add "~n" (where n is 1, 2, 3 etc.) to any search term to enable fuzzy searching (i.e. allowing for n insertions, deletions, or substitutions)
