Critical Readings

Brill’s Critical Readings publications are a one-stop reference resource in English for faculty, students and researchers, presenting high quality scholarship on one subject area assembled by experts in the field. By selecting the best material published to-date from a huge bank of sources, and contextualizing it thematically, the editor creates a unique tool for rapid access not only to seminal works but also to less familiar (and easily overlooked) texts.
Published as multi-volume sets, the Critical Readings publications are fully indexed, and include a comprehensive introduction newly written by the editor placing the selected works in their historical and intellectual context.

The series published an average of 3,5 volumes per year over the last 5 years.
