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: Do not use the name of the critical perspective or literary movement in the searches, as literary critics do not announce the perspective they're writing from. For this assignment, you are expected to study the perspective or movement and apply it to the text yourself.
