"Literature—the most seductive, the most deceiving, the most dangerous of professions."

--Viscount Morely John, (1838 - 1923)

Recommended Resources

  • MLA International Bibliography
    The definitive guide to literary criticism. Articles, books, and chapters in books. From 1920's to the present. Updated 10 times per year. Provides some links to full text articles.
    Go to the advanced search and check "language & literature" from the search screen. Remember, JSTOR only offers older articles from a limited, but quality, list of journals.
  • PAO - Periodicals Archive Online (Full Subscription)
    Like JSTOR, this one only has older articles but contains some valuable stuff.
  • Literature Resource Center
    Be careful with this one. It provides online access to canned criticism -- mainly excerpts from actual journal articles and books. Many profs do not allow you to cite this directly but it can lead you to the real stuff.
  • Academic Search Complete
    The old stand by. Be sure to check the box for "Scholarly 'peer reviewed' Journals" to ensure that you get high quality articles.
  • Early English Books Online
    Contains digital facsimile page images of virtually every work printed in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and British North America and works in English printed elsewhere from 1473-1700.
