Q

Need to write a paper combining some aspect of two works of fiction, William Faulkner's Barn Burning and Shakespear's Hamlet

I need to link a theme from two works I have read for my English class, William Faulkner's Barn Burning and Shakespeare's Hamlet. I am looking at the relationships between Father and son.

Check our Libguides by Subject page, and click on Literature (Links below).  From the Literature tab, you can find information on how to use the Library's literature databases, as well as links to the databases that should be most helpful to you.

I tried a keyword search of 'Fathers sons Barn Burning Hamlet'.  I would recommend splitting those search terms up, first searching for the theme Fathers and sons in the work Barn Burning, then that same term in Hamlet.

As you search, think of other works, father or fathers, the name of the main characters in Barn burning, or at least the one(s) you want to focus on.

I wish you luck with your paper, and if you need further assistance, just let us know.
