ENC 1102: Finding Literary Criticism & More (Dale Mabry): World Literature

Selected websites and library resources for researching works of literature.

World literature: background info

Background info - such as that found in these books and eBooks - provides the basic information about a work, author or literary topic. Background info can give a foundation for reading literary criticism.

Literature and its Times

Profiles of notable American and international literary works, and the historical events that influenced them. These books are online only.

Literary criticism in article databases

Different from background information, literary criticism can be defined as analysis and interpretation of literary works by scholars giving their points of view. These online databases are especially helpful for finding literary criticism articles.
