On Figures of Speech
  • The Forest of Rhetoric, silva rhetoricae — Browse a thorough list of rhetorical terms, with examples and explanations. Similar terms are cross-linked assiduously, so if you know one name for a figure of speech, but I have used another, this would be the place to check both of us know what we’re talking about. (And then call me out for making a mistake.)

More to come, even though the link above is plenty.

Free online
  • Ebooks: Project Gutenberg — In their own words: “Project Gutenberg offers over 53,000 free ebooks: choose among free epub books, free kindle books, download them or read them online.”
  • Poems: Poetry Foundation — In their own words: “The Poetry Foundation, publisher of Poetry magazine, is an independent literary organization committed to a vigorous presence for poetry in our culture. It exists to discover and celebrate the best poetry and to place it before the largest possible audience.”
  • Everything: Open Culture — In their own words: “Open Culture editor Dan Colman scours the web for the best educational media. He finds the free courses and audio books you need, the language lessons & movies you want, and plenty of enlightenment in between.” And when I say everything, I challenge you to find a type of educational material they don’t have. Expect to get lost in the maze of their links; expect to be educated; expect to be entertained.
