One More Voice


Lost Voices from the British Empire's Archives

Book-Length Published Works



Overview  top

One More Voice helps contextualize the critically-edited archival texts published by the site by providing an extended list of Victorian-era, book-length published works by non-European authors (mostly Anglophone). The length of these works makes full-scale critical editing impractical, but the extended list connects nearly every entry to an open-access, digitized version of the original book. Such digital repurposing extends the minimalist development ethos of One More Voice, while also enhancing the research and teaching value of the project as a whole. Links to corresponding Wikipedia pages and other fairly reliable biographical sources are also included when available. However, because the One More Voice project can not vouch for the quality of third-party items such as Wikipedia entries and digitized books on external sites, users are urged to apply critical caution when consulting these items.
