    Dear colleagues,

    We are pleased to announce the re-launch of our much expanded and revised
    Thomas Gray Archive website at:


    The Thomas Gray Archive is an interactive hypermedia repository for the
    study of the life and work of English poet Thomas Gray (1716-1771). The
    Archive consists of two major sections, the Primary Texts section and the
    Materials section. The former contains searchable electronic editions of
    Gray's English texts, extensive collaborative commentary, a concordance,
    and the digital library of important editions. The latter comprises
    secondary resources such as a biographical sketch, a chronological table of
    Gray's life and works, a select bibliography of printed materials, a
    picture gallery, and links to related online resources.

    The new Archive website offers Gray's complete English poetry online, an
    online concordance to the English poetry, and an evolving digital library
    of important 18th-century editions of Gray's works. In addition, the
    bibliography has been updated, many new items have been added to the
    picture gallery, and an Archive FAQ is now maintained as part of the help
    pages. The website is updated on a regular basis. Feedback on the new
    website and its added features is highly appreciated, please see the
    contact details below.

    Yours sincerely,

    Alexander Huber.
