The Literary Encyclopedia is an all-new reference work written by university teachers around the world. It is also a unique digital environment designed to integrate current knowledge of literature and culture and facilitate understanding of historical contexts and connections. Searches are possible by author, title of work and reference group (eg Arthurian literature, Confessional poetry). There is, as yet, no historical fiction heading. A subscription is required but snippet views are provided for authors and works.
