Product description

Cambridge Companions is a series of authoritative guides, written by leading experts, offering lively, accessible introductions to major writers, artists, philosophers, topics and periods.

The first two titles in the Companions series were the Cambridge Companion to Shakespeare and the Cambridge Companion to Chaucer, which were both published in 1986 and have since been updated with new editions.

Now, over 700 titles have been published with the intention not only to offer comprehensive overview of their chosen topic, but to display and provoke lively and controversial debate.

Cambridge Core hosts the online version of the printed series and includes over 700 Companion titles, over 4,000 essays, as well as bibliographies and further reading. It is fully searchable by author, title, topic, or theme. Content is available as a complete collection or in subsets for institutional purchase and lease. If your institution doesn't have access to Cambridge Companions, you can recommend these by selecting the title you are interested in, and clicking on 'Recommend to your librarian'.
