Answer

I actually did not find a whole bunch on this poem, but did find a few sources. If this isn't enough, you might want to ask your instructor about reselecting.

Go to the Databases by Subject LibGuide below, then select the Literature tab. Click on the GVRL eBook link. Once there, type your title in quotes "a dream within a dream". The first result is definitely good, and the 2nd article might have good info.

From the Literature tab also try Gale: Literature Resources from Gale. Type in your poem name in quotes, select the full text option, and hit search.

I didn't find anything in EBSCO: Academic Search Complete or the other databases.

You can also go to the EBSCO eBooks link below and run your search (again, the title in quotes). Once you have a result list, click on the Subject: Thesaurus Terms to expand. Put check marks in the boxes next to literary criticism and poems (there will be a few). This will help narrow your results.
