Lives: main window

The lives main window is headed by the person's name, their dates of life and death (if known) and a brief description of their nationality and occupation.

There are four components to the main window of the lives page:

  • biography tab — containing a biographical note on the person;
  • correspondents tab — a list of their correspondents;
  • letters tab — a list of the letters they wrote and received;
  • works tab — a list of works available as full-text in the Oxford Text Archive.

Correspondents tab

The correspondents tab gives you a list of all the correspondents of the person you are viewing. Clicking on the name of a person in the list takes you to their lives page. Clicking on the pen icon allows you to view a list of the correspondence between the two people.
