  • Going back fifteen centuries, the Encyclopedia covers the authors of novels, short stories, poetry, plays, criticism, social commentary, feminist manifestos, romances, mysteries, memoirs, children's literature, biography, and other genres. In signed entries, experts in the field examine writers' lives and achievements, comment on individual works, place artistic efforts in historical context, and provide insights and analyses
