  1. Beowulf (composed c. 750/ manuscript source c. 1010) Benjamin Slade's edition
  2. Geoffrey Chaucer Canterbury Tales (1386-1400). Virginia e-text (you may try to read the Shipman's tale with a translation into modern English).
  3. Sir Thomas Malory, Le Morte Darthur (1471/1485) EEBO, Marteau esp. Caxton's preface and book 5
  4. William Shakespeare, King Lear (1608). EEBO
  5. William Congreve, The Country Wife (1675). ECCO
  6. Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe (1719). ECCO, Marteau

  8. T. S. Eliot, The Waste Land (1922). Wikisource
  9. Edward Bond, Saved (1965)

Die Liste hat bislang drei Texte aus dem Mittelalter, wobei das 500 Jahren Spannbreite sind, drei aus dem 17. Jahrhundert (einer davon ein Shakespeare, einer ein Gebrauchstext), zwei aus dem 18. Jh., drei aus dem 19., drei aus dem 20. - von der Chronologie geht das. Mit Mary Shelley und Harriet Beecher-Stowe sind zwei Autorinnen dabei. Optional könnten wir Congreve Country Wife gegen Behn Rover austauschen, ist aber vom Text nicht ganz so prickelnd.
