|Corpora & Literary/Historical texts|
Not exactly an archive per se, this site has a list of links to sites with corpora. Some literary corpora are represented along with links to transcripts and samples of ordinary spoken language, representing a variety of dialects and eras. The site is organized by language with links to texts in English, French, German, Russian, Spanish and more.
