The literature list publishes around 120 titles a year, with titles on topics spanning the whole range of literary activity in the UK, North America, Europe, Asia and Australia, and from Anglo-Saxon times to the present day. The books themselves range from monographs to teaching texts, and from Cambridge Histories offering authoritative overviews of major subjects, to the more accessible approach of our Companions and Introductions. The New Cambridge Shakespeare Edition spearheads our world-class Shakespeare list; and major editions of other writers include the works of Ben Jonson, Jonathan Swift, Joseph Conrad, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Virginia Woolf, and the letters of Samuel Beckett and Ernest Hemingway.
