The Literary Encyclopedia is an expanding global literary reference work written by specialists from universities around the world. It offers a highly sophisticated digital environment which you can navigate using the menu bar above and the options list which appears top-right in any article. In terms of functionality, we like to think of ourselves as the I-Pod in a world of dinosaurs.
