Studies In Comparative Literature
Legenda book series
Studies in Comparative Literature are produced in close collaboration with the British Comparative Literature Association, and range widely across comparative and theoretical topics in literary and translation studies, accommodating research at the interface between different artistic media and between the humanities and the sciences.
The British Comparative Literature Association aims to promote the scholarly study of literature, across languages and borders, national or other. We explore literature in relation to other disciplines and translations between languages and media. BCLA's primary interests are in literature, the contexts of literature, and the interaction between literatures.

History. Studies in Comparative Literature is one of our largest and longest-enduring series, having begun in 1997 when Malcolm Bowie, Legenda's founder, was also President of the BCLA. Legenda was at that time a new venture and the distinguished scholar Siegbert Prawer placed great faith in us by offering us his major book on Thackeray to become the debut title, SICL 1. The series was successively chaired by Peter France and Stephen Bann before passing to Duncan Large in 2011, but mention must also be made of Elinor Shaffer, an energetic editor throughout the series's development.
