Classic British and American Essays and Speeches Online

Classic British and American Essays and Speeches

I saw this at Grammar & Composition. Available free online "from the works of Francis Bacon and Daniel Defoe to those of Virginia Woolf and Martin Luther King, Jr., are more than 150 of the greatest essays and speeches composed by British and American writers over the past four centuries."

Each are easy to copy and paste - great reading and copy work examples for students learning essay writing.

~ Of Studies, Francis Bacon (1561-1626): "Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man."
