A continuous programme of new titles and revised editions ensures that the series retains its breadth and reflects the latest scholarship. Comprehensive introductions, clear explanatory notes, chronologies, and bibliographies support the classic texts. In addition, many Oxford World's Classics include fascinating and useful related material such as maps, glossaries, indexes, illustrations, and appendices.

"[for OWC Zola's Rougon-Maquart Cycle] OUP editions are the ones to read, not only because the translations are infinitely better than anything else I found, but also because the Introductions will add to your enjoyment of the novels and the series." - Lisa Hill, ANZLit Lovers
