You can find literary criticism of these authors in the COM academic databases.  Follow the link below to our Databases libguide and select the Literature tab to view the available databases.  Choose a database from which you can search for articles.  Below are some suggestions for searching in some of the databases:

EBSCO Academic Search Complete: Begin your search by entering either author's name in the search bar.  After the search has gone through you can narrow the search results down with the options on the left side of the screen.  Limit to full-text and appropriate subject headings.  If you want to search for articles that discuss both authors, combine their names in your search using the word AND (ex. Edgar Allan Poe AND Robert Frost).

Chadwyck-Healy Literature: Select the author tab and enter the author's name in the find author search bar.  After selecting the author entry, click on the criticism option to view the literary criticism articles for the author.

Gale Literature Resources: Select the person search tab and enter the author's name.  If you want to find articles that are about both authors, select the advanced search tab.  Then enter one author's name in the first search bar and the second in the second search bar.  Make sure that each search bar is specified at either "keyword" or "person-by or about" and that the "And" operator is selected from the leftmost drop down list.

GVRL eBooks: Enter the database and select one of the four available books; Poetry for Students would be a good place to start.  Search for one of the author's names.  If you want to find articles that may discuss both authors, after doing the search for the first author, enter the second author's name in the "search within results" bar on the left side of the screen.
