LRC includes author biographies, selected criticism, and other helpful information. Search by author's name or by the title of work you are studying.
Search Google Scholar
Sadly, the web remains a terrible source for serious literature criticism in short form. The only source I can recommend is Google Scholar. Be sure to display the "Find it at CSUSB" button or link. Instructions here: Google Scholar and Pfau Library.
Limit your search to scholarly journals only (an option on the main search screen). Lit crit is almost never published in popular magazines.
Article Search Tips
If looking for criticism of a specific work, do a keyword search for the title. If the title is a common word, add the author's name to the search.
If looking for criticism about a theme or idea, use a keyword describing that theme (like "characterization" or "discourse theory"). Add the work title or author's name if you need to narrow the search.
