Encyclopedia and Companion Series

The companion and handbook genre is a publication type that has flourished in the last decade.  The goal is for leading scholars to provide a thorough description of the subject matter of a field while also giving the most current interpretations of key questions.  Each essay in a companion reflects an important subject facet and identifies the books and articles which are crucial for a greater understanding.   Companions for English include:

Cambridge Introductions – 29 titles

Oxford Companions and Handbooks - 68 titles         

Blackwell Companions to Literature & Culture - ~94 titles  

Cambridge Companions to Literature - ~200 titles
