The Clarissa Project


Just had a very interesting conversation with Martha about a project idea that has languished for a year or so, but which I definitely want to pursue with her now–The Clarissa Project, a Pepys’ Diary-like concatenated distribution of Richardson’s behemoth, that can be used in the classroom on multiple occasions. Maybe a WordPress version, each letter released as a post over the fiction-time of the novel? The benefits of this would include its portability via WP–and into other platforms. It could be exported/imported/re-released by individual professors teaching the novel at later dates. Here’s my public announcement of a commitment to Martha’s exciting idea!
