Experience the New Wiley Online Library and FAQS

Welcome to the Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Literature; a vast library that gives instant access to authoritative and up-to-date scholarship in literature and literary studies. The Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Literature comprises individual titles covering key literary genres and periods. Each title is available individually in print, whilst this online version brings them together into one ground-breaking resource, which is easy to access and use.


A Collection that Grows


The Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Literature is published in parts. Part One, published in December 2010, contains over 1,000 entries and comprises The Encyclopedia of Literary and Cultural Theory, The Encyclopedia of the Novel, and The Encyclopedia of Twentieth-Century Fiction.

Part Two, published January 2012 comprises The Encyclopedia of Romantic Literature and The Encyclopedia of English Renaissance Literature.

Part Three, published in January 2013, comprises The Encyclopedia of the Gothic.

A new part will be published each year, so the collection continues to grow. In February 2015 we added The Encyclopedia of British Literature: 1660-1789 and in August will also be introducing The Encyclopedia of Victorian Literature into the collection.


Easy to Use


The Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Literature boasts powerful searching, browsing, and cross-referencing capabilities, and an easy and accessible user interface. With unbeatable functionality, students, lecturers, and researchers will find the Encyclopedia an invaluable learning, teaching, and research resource.
