Additional notes on researching:
PLEASE DO NOT USE GOOGLE. Use the sources in Berkeley College Library Databases.
Web sources: Research in Berkeley College Library Databases to find a critical essay.
Use any of these databases:
Literary Reference Center Plus. Search by story title. Limit results to “Full text.” Narrow results by Source Type: “Literary Criticism.”
Bloom’s Literary Reference Online. Search by story title. Narrow results to select “Criticism.”
ProQuest. Search on the title of the primary source (for example, “Story of an Hour”).
Read a few essays; choose one whose argument you understand and want to write about. Some articles may not have an author. Try to find one with an author.
The essay you choose should be longer than 2 or 3 paragraphs. Make sure the essay makes an argument, and is not simply a summary of the work.
Read and be sure that you understand the main point of the critical essay. See me if you have any questions.
Follow MLA style for in-text citations and Works Cited page.
