Find works of History and criticism by geographic area and period by using the subject heading "History and criticism" following your initial search term, i.e English literature--17th century--History and criticism. Find works of criticism by a particular author by adding the subheading "Criticism and interpretation" to the author heading, i.e. Atwood, Margaret Eleanor, 1939- Criticism and interpretation.



Here are a few key databases for finding criticism and theory articles. For more article databases, see the subject guide for English Language and Literature--Find Articles page and the Databases by subject--Literature list on the Library web site.
