The Hoccleve Archive is a collection of resources meant to advance the study of this fifteenth-century London-based poet and his works. A developing digital humanities project, the Archive hosts teaching editions of all of Hoccleve’s known poems, and is working to build a complete critical digital edition of the Regiment of Princes. To facilitate this goal, the Hoccleve Archive also hosts a large number of resources useful for Hocclevean  scholarship, including digital images of manuscript collation data sheets compiled during the last attempt to produce a complete critical edition of the Regiment of  Princes (see e.g. our old demos), lexical data files that were used in the first computer-aided analysis of Hoccleve’s holograph works, data from new textual analyses of Hoccleve’s works, images of medieval manuscripts of Hoccleve’s texts, and a catalog of the physical materials (both hard-copy and microform) formerly in the collection of Charles Blyth that support this digital archive. The Archive also serves as a repository for digital humanities and pedagogical projects relating to Hoccleve’s poetry.

The Archive is being developed by Elon Lang, Robin Wharton, and other Hoccleve scholars, with help from the Texas Digital Library, the Texas ScholarWorks (The University of Texas Digital Repository), UT LAITS and LAITS Media Development Lab, and our Student Innovation Fellows.
