Literary Criticism

Literature Resource Center is the library's best resource for English, fiction, poetry, film, and other creative writing analysis. To find peer-reviewed sources, use the Literature Criticism tab. This will retrieve critical papers that analyze a particular author or written work. While other kinds of sources—such as biographies, topic summaries, or book reviews—can be helpful, they generally do not offer the in-depth analysis your instructors will be looking for.
