JSTOR Lives of Literature is a collection of 104 academic journals devoted to the deep study of writers and texts associated with core literary movements.

Key themes include:

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

This resource is a direct response to faculty requests for a deeper and wider set of journal content to enhance their teaching of writers and texts associated with key literary movements. The collection 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 or text—a curricular component at many institutions.
