Founded in 1998 The Literary Encyclopedia intends eventually to provide a
description of all literary and cultural texts of scholarly interest in the
English-speaking world, and to provide informed guidance to critical
reading, cultural topics and the historical context of cultural production.
The publication is collectively owned by its editors and authors (1600+ and
constantly increasing), most of whom are current or recently retired
university teachers. The Literary Encyclopedia has already published over
4100 articles and has 870 commissioned for publication in the next 12
months. It is supported financially by institutional subscriptions from
literature departments and by individual subscribers.
