Contemporary Literary Criticism™ through Literature Criticism Online assembles critical responses to the works of contemporary authors of all sorts — novelists, poets, playwrights, journalists, philosophers, political leaders, and writers from other disciplines — from every region of the world currently active or active during the latter part of the 20th century.

The series currently covers more than 3,000 authors and also includes numerous entries focusing on literary topics and individual works. Close to 95% of critical essays from the print Contemporary Literary Criticism™ series are reproduced in full in this online version, which combines multiple search and browse options with an engaging format that matches the look and feel of the print originals.

Clear, accessible introductory essays followed by carefully selected critical responses allow end-users to engage with a variety of scholarly views and conversations about authors, works and literary topics. Students writing papers or class presentations, instructors preparing their syllabi, or anyone seeking a deeper understanding of contemporary literature will find this a highly useful resource.
