Literary Theory Research

For research on Literary Criticism, check out Bloom’s Literary Reference (under Library Resources> MPC databases) and the Literary Reference Center (under Library Resources > Catalogue, Encyclopedias and Databases >Databases).  Also search the Gale Virtual Reference Library, where a number of online books can help you in your search for good quality information  (under Library Resources > Catalogue, Encyclopedias and Databases >ebooks).

The following websites are also useful:

Introduction to Modern Literary Theory

Dr. Kristi Siegel’s basic overview of many literary theories.  Also links to other professors’ sites.

Literary Resources on the Net

This page features a collection of links curated by Jack Lynch, a professor in the English department, of the Newark campus of Rutgers University, specializing in the English literature of the eighteenth century and the history of the English language. It is no longer maintained, but some of the links are excellent.

Literary Theory and Schools of Criticism

This is the site from Purdue University’s Online Writing Lab (OWL) – fairly in-depth articles.  Bonus – just a page away from all the writing and citation help you’ll ever need! (Has ecocriticism)
