Launching 'Sources in Early Poetics' with Brill!

We are delighted to announce the launch of Sources in Early Poetics, a new edition and translation series with Brill! The project has been in the works for several years and we are immensely grateful to everyone who has played a role, not least our phenomenal editors at Brill, Dr Kate Hammond and Dr Alessandra Giliberto.

Send us your proposals and join us for a launch event and roundtable on 16 March, 17:30-19:00 GMT (register through Eventbrite here)!

Sources in Early Poetics publishes primary sources in literary criticism from Greco-Roman antiquity to the Enlightenment. Cutting across established period and disciplinary divides, the series emphasizes both the essential continuity and the inventive range of over two millennia of criticism in the West and its neighbouring traditions. From the Levant to the Americas, from Greek and Latin to Arabic, Hebrew, and the rising vernaculars, Sources in Early Poetics provides a forum for new materials and perspectives in the long, cosmopolitan history of literary thought.

The series publishes editions of single works as well as collections of shorter texts by one or more authors, with facing-page English translations provided for all non-English texts. We also publish English translations of works available in adequate editions elsewhere, but unavailable in authoritative and accessible English renderings. Special attention is given to unpublished, unedited, and untranslated sources, especially those remaining in manuscript.
