    Most students in my classes may find these links helpful:
    The Cal Poly Pomona Web.
    Writing resources, courtesy of the University of Michigan Gayle Morris Sweetland Writing Center. This contains everything from the MLA handbook (which you'll need) to helpful hints on writing well in general. And a tip of the hat to UMich (where I used to work) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Writing Center, listed in the Resources and of which I am a proud alum.

    The University of Wisconsin Writing Center. Great people, amazing handouts. Look here if you want a few simple answers about MLA style, how to write a literature paper, etc.

    Drama Resources

    (For specifically Shakespeare resources, see the Shakespeare Page.)

    Skenotheke. This site from the University of Saskatchewan includes links to many major sites having to do with Greek and Roman drama, including a lot of images. Don't miss the reconstructed theaters.

    Roman Theaters--University of Kansas. Lots of pictures and diagrams here.

    The Records of Early English Drama page. Very scholarly, with a link to --

    The Poculi Ludique Societas. Out of U of Toronto, these folks put on big productions of medieval plays like the York Cycle. If you want to see pictures, this is the site.

    Steve Wright's site at Catholic University of America, with about 100 photographs of the York Cycle, produced in Toronto in 1998.

    Web page on commedia dell'arte. This Italian drama was a big influence on Shakespeare and later comedy. The page has information about stock characters, masks, and plenty of bibliography.

    Restoration drama.

    Costume history in more detail than you could ever imagine.

     

    Henrik Ibsen.

    Incredibly large site on Anton Chekhov, with lots of links.

     

    Medieval and Renaissance Sources

    The Labyrinth. Incredibly detailed virtual "library" of manuscripts and information. Scholarly but accessible.

    Luminarium. This site contains links to biographies of Medieval and Renaissance authors, essays, facsimile manuscripts and texts.

    Ok, this isn't Renaissance, but it sure helps--a site on Greek mythology. It's a little simplistic, but it will get you started, and links to some more complex sites.
