Literature in English collection

Main content


The Literature in English collection encompasses works of and commentary on fiction, poetry, and literary prose from around the globe. While the collection is strongest in American and British literature, Penn has increasingly collected literature from the international English-speaking community, including from India, English-speaking African nations, Canada, and Australia.
