Nonfiction: 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.

Literary criticism in article databases

Different from background information, literary criticism can be defined as analysis and interpretation of literary works by scholars who are writing for an academic audience. These online databases are especially helpful for finding literary criticism articles.
