The Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Literature aims to map, over time, the world's entire landscape of literary expressions and criticism, bringing together the various fields and approaches that make up literature in its broadest sense. Updated monthly, the Encyclopedia is one of 20+ works in the ongoing Oxford Research Encyclopedia (ORE) initiative. It will eventually include multi-media features embedded in articles, links to digital archives, and cross-referenced links to related content.
