The best place to find articles on works of literature is in our literature databases. Use our Working with Literature guide (see link below) to access the best literary criticism databases. Here are some tips:
- Type Hamlet in the search box and hit search.
- The result list defaults to the Literature criticism, which is what you want.
- On the left column, click on Hamlet (Play) to limit results by subject.
- Now change the Narrow Results by option to Document Type.
- Generally the best articles for your appear will be Critical essays, so choose that.
- You can also limit to peer reviewed publications--these will all be academic journal articles.
Literary Reference Center
- Click on Most Studied Works on the front page, then type on Hamlet.
- Click on Hamlet on the result list, then select Literary Criticism from the left column to get your articles.
And don't forget books & eBooks! They can be a great source for literature criticism.
