htmlParse with multiple html files

Hey there,
is there any way to use htmlParse with multiple html files? Got a folder with a bunch of files but I´m just getting the file names the moment I´m trying to use my list of files. The code Works fine on a single file.
files<-list.files(path = ".", recursive = TRUE,pattern = "\.html$", full.names = TRUE)

doc = htmlParse(filenames, asText=TRUE)
plain.text <- xpathSApply(doc, "//p", xmlValue)
stri_remove_empty(plain.text, na_empty = FALSE)
cat(paste(plain.text, collapse = "\n"))

You know how to handle one file.
Now create a function fun that does that.
Then use that function on your list html_files by specifying:


The result will be a list with the result of fun 'applied' to each htmlfile from the list.
