"DigitalDonne is the online component of The Variorum Edition of the Poetry of John Donne (8 vols. Indiana UP, 1995-) a collaborative work drawing on the labors of over 30 scholars from the United States and abroad". The aim of the digital edition is two-fold: "to produce a newly edited critical text based on exhaustive analysis of all known manuscript and significant print sources of Donne’s poetry and to present a complete digest of critical and scholarly commentary on the poetry from Donne's time to the present". The DigitalDonne project began in 1980 and in 2005 the online component was "substantially expanded" in order to accommodate a wide array of analytical and bibliographical tools. Recently, the project has expanded again to include "the most important of the early editions and manuscripts upon which the Variorum is based".
