Long recognized as the supreme reference on world literature, Ben#65533;t's Reader's Encyclopedia is the single-most complete one-volume encyclopedia available for those with a serious interest in the subject.

More than 10,000 entries explore all aspects of literature from around the world: biographies of poets and playwrights, novelists and belletrists; plot synopses and character sketches from important works; historical data on literary schools, movements, terms, and awards; myths and legends; and more.

Completely revised and updated, the fifth edition continues to expand on the diversity of today's canon, with greater attention to traditions from around the globe. In particular, this edition brings new focus to the changing landscape of world religion and culture, as well as to accurate reflection of contemporary reexaminations and interpretations, such as those of the Ottomans, Olmecs, and Umayyads.

For more than sixty years, William Rose Ben#65533;t and the editors who succeeded him have upheld the level of quality that distinguished the original Ben#65533;t's Reader's Encyclopedia. Like its predecessors, this new edition will teach and delight, illuminate and expound, and enrich the pleasure of reading in countless ways.
