Portuguese resources

4. Virtual resources

4.1 digital works and authors

You can now access many literary works either online or in CD-ROM, often accessible in libraries. The digitization of literature can be a great research tool as it will allow you to do specific searches in the text. For links to online literature, check our section on virtual libraries. There, you will find many of the literary works you are studying available online. To list them all individually on this page would be an infinite task. We have therefore limited our authors' page to a few examples.

Examples of digital authors

Portuguese: Authors & Texts - Romance Languages and Literatures at Harvard
This excellent page in the Harvard University website provides an extensive list of sites dedicated to Portuguese / Lusophone authors - their lifes and their work. Hyperlinks exist to Eça de Queirós, Camões, Lispector, Machado de Assis, to name but a few.

Here are some sites dedicated to specific authors:

Fundação José Saramago
This Institution is devoted to the preservation of Saramago’s estate. It also holds a biannual literary award and several other literary and cultural events throughout the year.

Europeana provides access to over 50 million digitised items - books, music, artworks and more.
