Note: Check the Cambridge Collections Online to find anthologies of critical articles and essays relating to specific literary theories.
Tips on searching. Put quotes around pairs of words or phrases. Example: "post colonialism." Go to the left side of the page and click on Literature, under Subject, if applicable, and under Access, mark the box that says "Only show content I have access to."
Below are links to EUREKA records of a sampling of books in our collection on or about literary theories and criticism.
You can search most databases the same way you search a library catalog, by author (last name first), title (journal or article), or, more commonly, by keyword or subject. A keyword search is a broader search; you can type in any word or phrase. A subject search uses controlled vocabulary. In databases, subject headings are often referred to as descriptors or index terms.
These are additional databases that might prove useful for further research.
