The Literary Encyclopedia is an expanding global literary reference work written by over 1850 specialists from universities around the world, and currently provides more than 4800 authoritative profiles of authors, works and literary and historical topics and grows by over 60 articles per month. The Encyclopedia offers good coverage of canonical literature originally written in English, French, German and Russian.
Compiled by 275 specialists from around the world, the Guide presents a comprehensive historical survey of the field's most important figures, schools, and movements and is updated annually. It includes more than 300 alphabetically arranged entries and subentries on critics and theorists, critical schools and movements, and the critical and theoretical innovations of specific countries and historical periods.
Containing over 1,000 of the most troublesome literary terms encountered by students and general readers, this gem of a book gives clear and often witty explanations to terms such as hypertext, multi-accentuality, and postmodernism. It is fully updated to include terms that have become prominent in the last few years, including antanaclasis, cohesion, focalization, log-rolling, and raisonneur. Terms from languages and literature other than English are given, as are pronunciation guides for over 200 difficult terms.
