The seed that would eventually grow into ELT Press was planted in 1957 when Professor Helmut E. Gerber recognized the need for a journal that would focus attention on late-Victorian and early-twentieth-century British literature. He founded English Literature in Transition, 1880-1920 at Purdue University.
In 1988, ELT Press was founded. ELT Press's 1880-1920 British Authors Series complements the journal by offering book-length studies on turn-of-the-century British writers. In this way, ELT Press fills a void left by other publishers, which readily print titles that feature the names Joyce, Yeats, or Woolf but neglect a host of other important British authors regarded as essential to the study of the Transition era and modernism.
