The EServer (founded in 1990 at Carnegie Mellon as the English Server), attempts to provide an alternative niche for quality work, particularly writings in the arts and humanities. Now based at Iowa State University, we offer fifty collections on such diverse topics as art, architecture, race, Internet studies, sexuality, drama, design, multimedia, and current social issues. In addition to short and longer written works, we publish hypertext and streaming audio and video recordings. Our collections grow as increased membership has new works to publish with us, and as we teach new members how to publish works to the Web and to the more than two million readers who visit our site per month. According to Alexa, this makes us the most popular arts and humanities website in the world.

The Will (1633)
Before I sigh my last gaspe, let me breath, Great Love, some Legacies; Here I bequeath Mine eyes to Argus, if mine eyes can see, If they be blinde, then Love, I give them thee; My tongue to Fame; to’Embassadours mine eares; To women, or the sea, my teares. Thou, Love, hast taught mee heretofore By making mee serve her who’had twenty more, That I should give to none, but such, as had too much before. My constancie I to the planets give; My truth to them, who at the Court doe live; Mine ingenuity and opennesse, To Jesuites; to Buffones my pensivenesse; My silence to’any, who abroad hath beene; My money to a Capuchin. Thou Love taught’st me, by appointing mee To love there, where no love receiv’d can be, Onely to give to such as have an incapacitie. My faith I give to Roman Catholiques; All my good works unto the Schismaticks Of Amsterdam: my best civility And Courtship, to an Universitie; My modesty I give to souldiers bare; My patience let gamesters share. Thou Love taughtst mee, by making mee Love her that holds my love disparity, Onely to give to those that count my gifts indignity. I give my reputation to those Which were my friends; Mine Industry to foes; To Schoolemen I bequeath my doubtfulnesse; My sicknesse to Physitians, or excesse; To Nature all that I in Ryme have writ; And to my company my wit. Thou Love, by making mee adore Her, who begot this love in mee before, Taughtst me to make, as though I gave, when I do but restore. To him for whom the passing bell next tolls, I give my physick bookes; my writen rowles Of Morall counsels, I to Bedlam give; My brazen medals, unto them which live In want of bread; To them which passe among All forrainers, mine English tongue. Thou, Love, by making mee love one Who thinkes her friendship a fit portion For yonger lovers, dost my gifts thus disproportion. Therefore I’ll give no more; but I’ll undoe The world by dying; because love dies too. Then all your beauties will bee no more worth Than gold in Mines, where none doth draw it forth; And all your graces no more use shall have Than a Sun dyall in a grave. Thou Love taughtst mee, by making mee Love her, who doth neglect both mee and thee, To’invent, and practise this one way, to’annihilate all three.John Donne [1572–1631]
