Special Collections: European Literature and Theater

Overview

Because of long-standing faculty interest in European literature and theater, our holdings are particularly strong in this area.  They document the imaginative and intellecutal world of European writers from the classical period through the present.  Works by Dante, Cervantes, Tasso, Goethe, Schiller, and others are available in both original and facsimilie editions, along with substantial collections of play and books by lesser-known authors.
