|This page in a nutshell: Do not add full text works to Wikipedia if they are uncomfortably long or if it is copyrighted.|
Wikipedia is not a mirror of public domain or other primary source material. In Wikipedia articles, quotes of any original texts being discussed should be relevant to the discussion (or illustrative of style) and should be kept to an appropriate length.
