Resource Focus : The Marandet Collection

Writing about web page

The University of Warwick's Marandet collection of 18th- and 19th-century French plays is a unique resource and one of the most significant collections of its kind in the country. There are over 2000 plays from the period 1700-1830 and a similar number from the period 1830-1900. Most of the plays were acquired originally by a 19th-century French collector, Amédée Marandet, who was himself an actor and playwright. Many of the works and their authors have now been forgotten but the collection is extremely rich in popular drama of the 18th and 19th centuries.

The University is running a number of trial databases. Please feel free to explore and email Steve Barber with any thoughts or suggestions. Titles include Caribbean Literature and Latino Literature.

Caribbean Literature is a searchable collection of poetry and fiction produced in the region during the 19th and 20th centuries. Among the titles selected by our editors are numerous rare and hard-to-find works written in English, French, Spanish, Dutch, and various Creole languages. Future releases will also feature journals, reference works, and interviews with key writers.

Latino Literature brings together more than 100,000 pages of poetry, fiction, and drama written in English and Spanish by hundreds of Chicano, Cuban, Puerto Rican, Dominican, and other Latin authors working in the United States. Among the gems of the collection are nearly 800 items (poems, novels, and plays) that have never been published before.

New Research Pro has arrived!

Writing about web page

Research Pro is a new service available from the Library, and enables you to search multiple databases from a single interface. This new improved service replaces the metafind pages. In addition it offers a clearer presentation of search results, and the ability to print or email search results.

You can use this resource to search subject specific resources from the relevant arts subject pages, or you can select the databases from different subjects relevant to you on the research pro webpage.

Research Pro is a useful resource in obtaining an overview of research on a particular subject area, enabling you to carry out a basic search. However if you want to utilise advanced search options for the resources you will need to search each resource individually.   

For further information about this resource, please contact your Subject Librarian.
