The database consists of nearly 2000 texts, ranging from classic works of French literature to various kinds of non-fiction prose and technical writing, including works by Voltaire, Moliere, Camus, Balzac and many others. The eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries are about equally represented, with a smaller selection of seventeenth century texts as well as some medieval and Renaissance texts.
