Gale Literary Sources allows searchers to discover and analyze literary content.
Use the Advanced Search tab to search for articles on a theme or topic and select subject from the drop down menu. See example below. There are other approaches under the drop down box that you also may want to use, e.g., Person-by if you're looking for information on a particular author or Name of Work if you're looking for information on a particular short story or novel.
Includes the databases: Arts & Sciences II, Arts & Sciences III, and Language & Literature, with content primarily from academic journals. Topics covered include archaeology, art, architecture, classics, economics, film studies, folklore, history, literary criticism, music and religion.
Use the Advanced Search screen in JSTOR to search for themes and topics. Select Abstract in the drop down box to limit your search to the summary of each article and find the more effective results. In this database, if you want to find articles about a particular author or title, also use Abstract in the drop down box because in this case, author refers to the author of the article, not the author about whom you are seeking information. Similarly if you are looking for information on a particular story or novel, also use Abstract, because title in JSTOR refers to the title of the article, not the title of the story about which you are seeking information.
