Allow me to introduce you to Literature Criticism Online. Don’t be shy. This little database wants to help you write the best papers possible.

literature criticism online,

What it is: a database that compiles tons of criticism on literature and breaks it down by genre (poetry, short fiction, etc.); author (Melville, Shakespeare, Eliot); and text (The Grapes of Wrath, Beloved, The Wasteland). Use the subheadings and search bars to get to relevant criticism faster and revel in the full-text sources. For more information and to check out the database click here.
