English Major Central


Hey :)
I am an English major here in Austria and I'm currently in my freshman year.
We recently started to interpret Shakespeare's sonnets in our Literature class.
There is only one problem: we have to use the OED in order to get the proper meaning for the words, the problem is that I can't access the online version of it here from my home computer.
I don't have the original copy so I can't use this one either.
my question is: do you know any other websites where I can get the (original)meanings for the words used in his sonnet? (sonnet 97 that is)

thanks in advance

The OED really is your best bet as it is a difinitive source, and it sounds like it's a requirement to use it. If you're not able to get access from home, you may need to wait until you're on campus.
