Complete collections

The complete works are available all at one time in two separate formats.

One is a named list, where each entry is a named character vector. The name of the vector is the name of the work, and the contents of the vector are lines of the associated text file (all lines are <= 70 characters).

The other is a data frame with a column for the name of the work (repeated as many times as there are lines of content) and a column for the content of the work, where each cell in the content column is one line of text.
