Literature Criticism Online

Over 1200 volumes of literary criticism from the famous reference sets Contemporary Literary Criticism, Twentieth-Century Literary Criticism, Nineteenth-Century Literature Criticism, and Shakespearean Criticism are now available 24/7. These are the reference books that teachers have recommended and required for years for literature research papers. Now scanned page by page and available electronically, everything is keyword searchable so very specific themes and topics can be located quickly. This database is provided through funding from the Ocean County Library.
