Anne SavareseExecutive Editor (Literature)
I acquire books about literature, including literary criticism and literary history; primary and biographical work, such as Living on Paper: Letters from Iris Murdoch, 1934–1995; and new translations or editions of classics, such as The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm: The Complete First Edition. I am particularly interested in books on modern British and American literature, comparative literature, poetry and poetics, folklore and mythology, and language and media history. I like books that combine new ideas and research with clear, accessible writing and a broad scope, as well as books that put literature in conversation with other disciplines such as intellectual, cultural, and social history and the visual arts. I also acquire the occasional literary reference work or practical book on writing, research, or teaching, and selected volumes of poetry through the Lockert Library of Poetry in Translation and the Princeton Series of Contemporary Poets.
