Open Book Classics

Open Book Classics present lucid, accessible and free to access translations of literary works including our prize-winning multilingual edition of Denis Diderot’s influential Rameau’s Nephew, the multilingual anthologies The Idea of Europe: Enlightenment Perspectives and Tolerance: The Beacon of the Enlightenment, which was featured in The Guardian, Times Higher Education and elsewhere. These fresh and informative translations recover texts that have not recently been revived, or do not exist at all in a critical edition in English. Including cutting-edge interactive and multimedia resources, the literature is brought to life using musical recordings, hypertext annotations and vivid illustrations.
