The Penguin Group has launched a "Classics" Web site and confirmed that it is exploring potential ecommerce alliances.
Penguinclassics.com is a source of information about literary classics and will carry interviews, research and discussion groups, as well as notes for teachers.
Penguin, a subsidiary of Pearson, said said it is currently talking to a number of potential ecommerce distrbution partners.
"We are creating the modern day equivalent of the old fashioned salon in which the enduring values of the world's greatest literature are discussed, debated and passed onto a new generation of readers," commented Michael Lynton, chairman of The Penguin Group.
The Penguin Classic series now includes over 1600 titles, from the earliest creation myths to the masterpieces of the 20th Century.
