Quotidiana (Research)

Quotidiana, from the word quotidian, is a website dedicated to the essay. Quotidiana includes the writing and teaching portfolios of site creator Patrick Madden, a set of conference papers and annotated bibliographies, a collection of interviews with contemporary essayists, a selection of the “Essayest American Essays,” from recent years, and, most importantly and most substantially, an anthology of hundreds of classical essays, all published before 1923, all partakers of the ruminative, associative, idea-driven form that predates and surpasses the current “creative nonfiction” trend. Although most of these essays are available online elsewhere, some are not, and already Quotidiana is one of the biggest online anthologies of classical essays anywhere.
