Access Vital Literary Research Information

Literature and language researchers thrive on finding new angles to inspire their research, but sifting through document archives—and hoping they contain all issues, with no editorial or images ripped out—consumes time that could be spent in creative thought and inquiry. ProQuest’s tailored research environments include access to 350,000 complete and pristine primary texts, criticism, and reference works authoritatively curated for deep textual analysis and reliable citing. Important and rare early modern works facilitate the study of Europe’s cultural heritage. See our Arts and Literature catalog.
