Tips for Finding Articles About Literature

If you have trouble finding articles, try these tips:

  • Try searching a different database or journal. Each one contains different articles.
  • Don't just search for the author's name or title of a book. Try searching these along with the name or title:
    • Time period or culture of one of the author's books
    • Genre
    • The author's other works
    • Literary elements, i.e. metaphors, plot points, etc.
    • Themes in the work you're researching
