The British Authors archive compiles some 150 texts, images, and photographs, related to famous writers of the United Kingdom, notably Jane Austen, Oscar Wilde, Virginia Woolf, and Mary Shelley. A follow-up to the American Authors project conceived by MIT lecturer Wyn Kelley of Literature, this archive was designed to support Introduction to Fiction, a course that investigates the uses and boundaries of fiction in a range of novels and narrative styles. Students can access a variety of multimedia materials that provide context for the authors’ works, including an audio interview with Virginia Woolf and original authors’ notes.
