Literature Online: an undiscovered gem!

Need in-depth criticism of an author’s work?  Want to find information about an author’s life? What about searching the online text of key works of drama, poetry, and prose from all time periods? Then Literature Online is the database you need.  Much more in-depth information about authors than you can find on Wikipedia, links to full-text journal articles of criticism, and citations to books and book chapters that you can check out from UofL Libraries.  Literature Online even has a multi-media component where you can find audio of 38 of Shakespeare’s plays as well as poets reading their own and other poet’s work.  For the lover of literature, the student trying to finish a literature paper, or a faculty member wanting to do textual analysis, this database has a little something for all!

To access the database, go to the “L” section of the Databases A-Z list and click on Literature Online:
