About Lives of Literature on JSTOR

The Lives of Literature resource comprises four thematic modules.

  • Medieval Authors & Texts
  • Modernist Authors
  • Victorian, Edwardian & Gothic Authors
  • Literary Theorists

This resource supports advanced literary studies and interdisciplinary research on writers and texts critical to curricula in literature and broadens the range of authors and texts covered on JSTOR. And with its focus on journals that use an author or text as a starting place, Lives of Literature also fulfills a scholarly resource need for in-depth study and courses on a single author—a curricular component at many institutions.
