Title : Facta et verba

Description :
Facta et Verba is an online collection of classical electronic texts, produced by a project that describes itself as 'a laboratory that investigates the automatic processing and presentation of data'. In practice, there is little discussion of the theoretical issues surrounding text encoding and presentation to be found in this website, which acts rather as a page allowing the user to see the results of such encoding. Items featured on the site include: an annotated hypertext edition of Suetonius's Vita Augustus, with links to an English translation; text, commentary, translation of and concordance to Boethius' Consolatio Philosophiae; a concordance to Virgil's Aeneid (Book IV); and an extract (in English translation) from Aeschylus' Agamemnon, with commentary (lines 266-316, the section containing Clytemnestra's famous monologue). At the time of writing this review, the site had not been updated since March 2001.
