Answer

COM Library's literature databases are the ideal place to find literary criticism articles.  To access them, go to our Databases by Subject libguide and select the Literature tab.  From there you can go to each individual literature database and search each for articles about this work.  Chadwyk-Healy Literature Online, EBSCO: Academic Search Complete, Gale: Literature Resources and GVRL each contain relevant material.

In Chadwyk-Healy, searching for "A good man is hard to find" will retrieve many articles, several of which have full-text access.

In Academic Search Complete, try searching for "A good man is hard to find" (include the quotes).  This will retrieve many articles, but you can limit this to relevant articles through the search limiters on the left side of the screen.  Limit to full-text articles and relevant subject terms.

In Gale, select the 'Works Search' tab at the top of the screen and search for 'A good man is hard to find'.

In GVRL, a basic search for 'A good man is hard to find' will retrieve a relevant match at the top of the search results.
