Where do I find literature criticism/secondary articles about a novel, play, poem, fairy tale or short story?

Last updated on May 27, 2021    research databases


Many of the library's resources related to literature can be found through the Literature Subject Guide. The databases where students have the most success finding critical essays about works of literature are Gale Literary Sources and JSTOR. For both databases, start by entering the author and name of work as your keyword.
