[This e text comes in three forms: Unicode (UTF 8), Latin 1 and ASCII 7. Use the one that works best on your text reader.

If "oe" displays as a single character, and apostrophes and quotation marks are "curly" or angled, you have the UTF 8 version (best). If any part of this paragraph displays as garbage, try changing your text reader's "character set" or "file encoding".

Apostrophes and quotation marks will be straight ("typewriter" form). Again, if you see any garbage in this paragraph and can't get it to display properly, use: The ASCII 7 or rock bottom version. All necessary text will still be there; it just won't be as pretty. Note that in the Introduction to "Agnes de Castro", the name "Constança" has a cedilla and "Peñafiel" has a tilde.

In the printed book, all notes were grouped at the end of the volume. For this e text, they have been placed after their respective stories.

Where appropriate, cross references from other volumes of the Complete Works are quoted after the Notes... Continue reading book >>
