ENGL 300W - Writing about Literature

Finding Books

One potentially useful search is to enter an author's name and "criticism and interpretation" as subjects.

Finding Articles about Literary Criticism

A quick search of most of the library’s books, articles, e-books, dissertations, videos, music, and more.

Find literature-related resources by searching the library Esearch. For example, a search for "Shakespeare AND criticism" should provide many results. Use the filters that appear on the left side of your list of results to find the most relevant resources.

Additionally, you may look for articles in databases that are more specific to the field of literature. MLA Bibliography is the most comprehensive source of literary criticism, so it's a good place to start.
