Literature Resource Center puts literary criticism all in one location! For high school and college students, this serves as a goldmine. It provides a vast amount of information about famous and contemporary writers, poets, philosophers, and other literary figures.
After searching for your author, choose the category of information you are seeking: biographical, literary criticism, topic & work overviews, reviews & news, primary sources & literary works, and multimedia.
You can find an extensive amount of criticism by major scholars, journals, and magazines, and most conveniently the citations for the critical essays are formatted for easy transfer to bibliographies.
Another tiny feature that avid readers will enjoy about this database is that it provides recent news on writers, such as their newest releases or what they are currently working on.
