This is one of several semantic repositories that contains and publishes RDF linked data and co-reference information, forming the underlying distributed storage model behind the RKB Explorer initiative.

There is a lot of text in this store, so you may want to avoid doing free text searches on things like "Shakespeare" and "people"!

This repository contains data processed by Hugh Glaser as a birthday present to Ian Davis.

It is a very quick and dirty job of processing the data provided by Project Gutenberg from A Short Biographical Dictionary of English Literature by John W. Cousin.

Please feel free to get the raw data in n3 and do anything you like with it, such as choosing a decent ontology, etc.. If you then want me to publish it instead, that would be fine.

Also, it would be great if someone felt like doing linkage to other sources - I have run out of time to do any more work on this.
