Bloom's Literary Reference

This is a great source for literary criticism, analysis, and author information. Titles for specific articles are not always informative - making it difficult to quickly identify the best article in the results list. However, opening the article and browsing often reveals very useful articles. Also note, words typed in the search box (including theme keywords) will be highlighted in the entries when they are opened.  

Gale Lit Crit Online (Gale LCO)

This SUBSCRIPTION DATABASE provides access to a multitude of literature criticism for literature throughout the ages as well as drama, poetry, and Shakespearean criticism.
