Cambridge Companions Online


Cambridge Companions are lively, accessible introductions to major writers, artists, philosophers, topics and periods. All are collections of specially commissioned essays, shaped and introduced to appeal to student readers. Together the chapters add up to a systematic critical account of, for example Plato, Luther, Jane Austen, Tom Stoppard or Stravinsky, the French Novel or Jewish American Literature, and each title is supported by reference features such as a chronology and guide to further reading.

Addressing topics and figures as diverse as Gothic Fiction and Arabic Philosophy, WB Yeats and Martin Luther, the online collection contains over 4000 downloadable essays, taken from 485 Cambridge Companions to Literature and Classics (263 volumes), Philosophy, Religion and Culture (165 volumes) and Music (57 volumes).

Five new Companions have been added as part of the May 2012 update. For more details, please see our News page.
