The Public Domain Review

http://publicdomainreview.org/about/

Quote:
The Public Domain Review aspires to become a bounteous gateway into this whopping plenitude that is the public domain, helping our readers to explore this rich terrain by surfacing unusual and obscure works, and offering fresh reflections and unfamiliar angles on material which is more well known.

With our curated collection of exotic scraps and marvellous rarities and comprehensively linking to freely distributable copies of works in online archives and from far flung corners of the web, we hope to encourage readers to further utilise and explore public domain works by themselves.

Oh my goodness, those two quoted sentences are just downright painful to try to read!

They do seem a bit forced, don't they?

Maybe that style is for filtering out those who wouldn't be comfortable with pre-1923 literature anyway.

The wording is a tad pretentious but the site is very nicely done IMO. And the intentions are good.

Still it does seem to be aimed at the academia (who should be aware of this content already) and not the hoi polloi like me.

I checked it out and ended up watching some of the short Edison film clips.

The Enchanted Drawing (1900) was cute.

the blurb would be much improved with the insertion of the term 'rich creamery butter'.

those blurbs are what happens when someone that can't write suddenly discovers a thesaurus.

Nah, English majors talk to each other like that all the time.

Actually, I think they were just trying to be amusing.
