Primary Sources

Questia’s collection of primary sources in literature and nonfiction includes some of the most important and historically significant texts. By presenting a firsthand view of an event or a time period, these sources provide a referential perspective while acting as the subject of subsequent study and research. These can include historical documents, original philosophical writings, religious texts, works of poetry, interview and speech transcripts, manuscripts, and autobiographies.
