The Palgrave Literary Dictionaries are a new series of reference books which will provide readers with concise and reliable guides to individual authors or groups of authors. Entries will be arranged alphabetically and will include topics and issues on literary works, fictional characters, place, historical, political and social contexts, intellectual influences, genre and critical traditions. Entries will be cross-referenced as appropriate. Each Dictionary will include a practical introduction, bibliography of recommended further reading and a chronology of key events.
The Palgrave Literary Dictionaries will be aimed at students, teachers, scholars and the advanced general reader. We are currently looking to commission titles on: Austen, The Brontës, Milton, Early Modern Women Writers and Poets of the First World War. We are, however, open to alternative suggestions.
