Volume II of the Works of Goethe: title page with illustration
While original language texts by both classical and very contemporary authors represent the majority of the Research library’s foreign literature collection, a significant proportion is taken up by critical studies, study days, concordances, symposiums, bibliographies, and academic works.
The Reference library offers corpora by foreign authors as well as a large number of French translations. Like the Research library, the Reference library monitors current events in literary publishing.
Manuscripts by major authors such as Heinrich Heine and Miguel Angel Asturias are held in the Manuscripts Department at the Richelieu Library (Site Richelieu).
