About the Penguin Classics Library

For more than half a century Penguin has been the leading publisher of classics in the English-speaking world. Since the publication of the first 'Penguin Classic' in 1946 - E.V. Rieu's translation of The Odyssey - Penguin's mission has been to make the great books of all time available at a reasonable cost.

To this end, Penguin is dedicated to making sure that these books speak to contemporary readers by embracing excellence in scholarship, translation, and book design. 'The Penguin Classics' list is organic. New books are brought into the series and others are removed as tastes and interest in literature evolve. Penguin's ability to react to the always evolving universe of great literature is one of the many things that has made Penguin the leader in classics publishing.

Now available as the definitive collection for home, office, or institutional libraries, the 'Penguin Classics Library' contains over 1300 titles, ranging through all Penguin's Classic imprints - the greatest works of literature totalling around half a million pages. From Renaissance philosophy to Greek tragedy, from the spiritual writings of India to the astonishing genius of Shakespeare, and from the travel narratives of the great explorers to the literary inventions of the twentieth century there are classics here to educate, provoke, entertain, and enlighten readers of all interests and inclinations.
