BC Editions is the upcoming reincarnation of the Beyond Criticism book series, originally published by Bloomsbury and now being taken over by Boiler House Press. The series explores the radical new forms that literary criticism might take in the 21st century.


The series will launch in Spring 2021 with a set of five books, including new works by Steve Hanson, Robert Crawford, and Ansgar Allen, as well as a new edition of the brilliant and now out-of-print Macbeth, Macbeth by Ewan Fernie and Simon Palfrey.

Each book will be accompanied by its own new section of the Beyond Criticism website, featuring an online ‘expansion’ or ‘explosion’ of the book. The exact form this will take will differ from book to book, but may include interviews, reflections, responses, rewritings, additional materials cut from earlier drafts, photographs and music -– in each case a unique concoction of materials, mixing both inspirations for the book and responses to it. If you would like to learn more about BC Editions, have a read of the manifesto.
