The University of Warwick's WikiOmeros project ran for two years, and was intended to supply an online commentary to Derek Walcott's poem, Omeros.

Owing to persistent technical issues, the project was not able to attract further funding for maintenance and has therefore been suspended for the foreseeable future. The commentary to-date can still be accessed in the downloadable pdf version and accessed directly on the WikiOmeros blog.
