How do I find critical works about an author?
For books, enter the author's name in the Library Catalog search box and choose "--by Subject". For articles, try MLA International Bibliography (Home Page--Subject Guides--Modern Languages and Literature--MLA Int'l Bibl.), and search on the author's name in "Subject Author". For book reviews from a variety of sources try Book Review Digest Plus (Home Page--Subject Guides--Modern Languages and Literature--Book and Movie Reviews--Book Review Digest Plus). Another good place to look would be the Literature Resource Center (Home Page--Subject Guides--Modern Languages and Literature--Biographies--Lit. Res. Ctr.); search on the author, and then choose the "Literary Criticism..." tab.
