Many of them will be in Literature Online (LION), the Chadwyck-Healey
database (at chadwyck.com), to which you must have a subscription, which
many schools do. Check with your college library online folks. One of
their databases is of 200 works of Elizabethan prose fiction, two others
of "all of" English poetry and drama.

Comment:        Re: SHK 10.1508 Online Sources

David Nicol asks,

"I have a question. I'm looking for online e-texts of Shakespeare's
sources, such as Painter, Cinthio, etc. Does anybody know if such things
exist?"

"I haven't found any specific sites devoted to the subject, but perhaps
list members may have discovered a few of the sources tucked away in
corners of the Web."

I have tried our own  SHINE (Shakespeare in Europe) - "Links"-page at
http://www.unibas.ch/shine/SHINE_Links.htm for "16th and 17th Century
English Texts". There are several splendid sites which provide links to
online e-texts of sources and contemporaries, such as:
http://www.luminarium.org/renlit/index.html
http://web.uvic.ca/shakespeare/Annex/ShakSites11.html
http://www.unicatt.it/library/milano/BancheDati/Surfing.htm
http://www.humanities.ualberta.ca/emls/emlsetxt.html
http://www.ipl.org/reading/books/
http://www.library.upenn.edu/etext/furness/

But there is no Painter or Cinthio anywhere. Some hope, though: both are
listed (but not yet available) at

http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/sources.html.
