Finding Sources: Databases

Use the databases below to find sources for your essays.  The best way to search these databases is to use the name of the author, or to use the name of the work.  For more information on how to use specific databases, see "How Do I Conduct Literary Research?"

Note: If you're writing from a specific critical perspective or literary movement, do not use its name in the searches, as literary critics do not announce the perspective they're writing from.  Instead, study the perspective's characteristics and apply them to the text yourself.
