How It Works

To see how a Newly Annotated E-text works, take our audio-video tour:

For an overview of components in one of these e-texts, see the list below.

Key Components

Table of Contents Clicking a title in your account takes you to the Table of Contents for that Gleedition. This is the landing page and navigation instrument to all parts of the Gleedition.

Title Page Besides listing the scholars involved, the title page sets the scene with an image suited to the literary text.

Literary Text The central component is an academically approved edition of the complete literary work.

Annotations for Seven Elements Every Gleedition is annotated for seven literary elements: Vocabulary, Voice/Point of View, Setting, Plot, Characters, Style, and Themes/Issues.

Checkboxes On literary-text pages, you can check any number of active literary elements in SHOW toolbar at top. Elements remain checked from page to page until you uncheck them.

Highlighted Lines A checked box at the top of the page triggers 1) highlighting in the literary text below and 2) an accompanying annotation heading in the right-hand margin.

Annotation Headings Click the down arrow () in the annotation heading to open the annotation; click the up arrow () to close the annotation. Click the close icon () to delete the annotation box altogether.

Portable Annotations If annotations overlap, just move an annotation box to a clear area in the right-hand margin. To move, simply hover over the annotation heading until your icon changes and drag.

Saved Annotations To store an annotation for future use, click Save in the lower right-hand corner of annotation box. To access the item, click "My Saved Annotations" in the toolbar at the top of each page.

Specific Searches Each Gleedition has a Search Tool and an Index. Use the Search Tool to locate words in the literary text, the Index to find examples of literary elements at work in the text. To quickly locate a division (chapter, scene, etc.) of the text, use the Table of Contents.

Definitions For word meanings, use an e-text's vocabulary annotations or its Glossary of Literary Terms. Also provided for select novels is a dictionary of words and phrases.
