The Poly-Olbion Project


"The core purpose of The Poly-Olbion Project, based at the University of Exeter and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, is to produce a new scholarly edition of the text". Poly-Olbion is a unique material object that was published in two parts as a results of the "richly collaborative" partnership between Michael Drayton, William Hole, and John Selden. The Poly-Olbion Project is "committed to bringing Poly-Olbion to a wider audience". The Poly-Olbion Project is still in development but currently available online are extracts of the text that mirror how the entire work will be digitally rendered. These extracts include a brief preface, fully transcribed text, and an accompanying image.
