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.
"A peerless series" - Tribune
"The Oxford Worlds Classics... proves all over again that classics only become classics because they are superb reading." - Louis de Bernières
