Welcome to Open Source Classics. 

The purpose of this site is to share great literature online with two goals. First, you'll find not just the translation into English, but also the original language. The other goal is to make these texts available in as free a way as possible. 

For the moment, the texts will focus on European—particularly the Romance languages—literature and the translations will focus on English as the target language. This focus is not out of cultural superiority or the like: it just happens to be that I'm a native English speaker with a strong knowledge of Latin. No more, no less. I hope that as the project evolves that this situation will rectify itself.

Not enough here? We also do tumblr.
