The best place to find articles on works of literature is in our literature databases. Use our How To Use Literature Databases LibGuide (see link below) to access the best literature databases and get step by step instructions. You may need to use all three databases to find enough articles, depending on your assignment and the specific author or work you have selected.

Here are some tips:


  • You can limit to Academic Journals under Source Types
  • It's also a good idea to take a look at limits available under Subject and Subject: Thesaurus terms. A good one would be CRITICISM.

Chadwyck-Healey Literature Online (LION) Reference Edition

  • Limit to articles on the Criticism search page. 
  • Type Macbeth in the subject field to search. 

Literature Resources from Gale

  • Select name of work after typing in Macbeth. 
  • Limit to Literature criticism under content type. 
  • You can alos limit to peer reviewed publications--these will all be academic journal articles.
