The primary purpose of this project, therefore, is to get my own past and future reading into some sort of perspective. I had tried various computer data-base bibliographies before, but never found them really convenient. Having found hypertext a likable way of flipping through sources, I decided to put my bibliographies together using Netscape. As I started to do so, I realized that, in other web documents, I have referred to some of these materials -- hyper linked references. I also realized that I have, on occasion, either had students ask for, or have wanted to offer, suggested reading. Finally, I have, in my work on Syntax in the Schools, received requests for bibliographies. Because they will not take up much web space, and because I can put them there in a matter of minutes, I decided to add these files to my course web site.
Because these are working bibliographies, they are a mish-mash of styles (PMLA, APA, etc.) There are probably also some errors in these bibliographies. They have been complied from a variety of old programs, some of which left codes in the text. As errors are found, I will do my best to correct them. If I have the information, I indicate my source for the bibliographical citation. You will also find indications that I have read some of these works. These are simply reminders to me that, yes, even though I do not remember it, I read it. (There are many works that are not so marked, but which I have read.) There are also, for whatever they are worth, short (or long) annotations. [I'm thinking of actually including passages from some texts that I may want to quote in the future. That way, I can simply cut and paste. Technology is a pain, but it is also wonderful.]
