Cambridge Companions are a series of authoritative guides, written by leading experts, offering lively, accessible introductions to major writers, artists, musicians, philosophers, topics, and periods.
The first two titles in the Companions series were the Cambridge Companion to Shakespeare and the Cambridge Companion to Chaucer, which were both published in 1986 and have since been updated with new editions. Now Cambridge Core hosts the online version of the printed series and includes over 600 Companion titles (over 4,000 essays), as well as bibliographies and further reading. The collection is fully searchable by author, title, topic, or theme. Content is available as a complete collection or in subsets for institutional acquisition.
The subscription period is January 1 through December 31. Subscriptions may be started at other times during the year, but will be prorated.
