Introducing a Unique Way to Interact with Shakespeare

The Shakespeare CoLab is an interdisciplinary digital humanities project working to create a repository of fully-annotated Shakespeare texts on a digitized platform. Utilizing the Folger Shakespeare Library’s digital texts for content, we aim to expand the accessibility of Shakespeare online by providing a resource of digital texts that include explanatory notes generated entirely from original student scholarship. Our mission is to bring Digital Shakespeare and the Digital Renaissance into scholarship, pedagogy, and the public sphere.

"To indulge in something to satiety or excess; esp. to eat or drink to excess."

Orsino intends to overindulge in music as both a purge and cure for his lovesickness.
