Literary Analysis: When Worlds Collide

“ In short, as, though it may not be realized, it is strictly true, that a few first-class poets, philosophs, and authors, have substantially settled and given status to the entire religion, education, law, sociology, &c., of the hitherto civilized world, by tinging and often creating the atmospheres out of which they have arisen…” Walt Whitman, Democratic Vistas Using what you know to find what you need to research and analyze literature @Your Library

Consider each book is it’s own WORLD… People….are characters Places, history and even weather…are settings Goals, plans, dreams, fate…are plot Stories, anecdotes…are narrative When you’re holding a book in your hand preparing to critically analyze it, you have a world in your hands. A world that other’s have discussed, explored, considered and wrote about. A good literary analysis is a well documented collision of the actual book, other’s views and your own educated & well researched opinion.

People….are characters

Places, history and even weather…are settings

Goals, plans, dreams, fate…are plot

Stories, anecdotes…are narrative

When you’re holding a book in your hand preparing to critically analyze it, you have a world in your hands. A world that other’s have discussed, explored, considered and wrote about.

A good literary analysis is a well documented collision of the actual book, other’s views and your own educated & well researched opinion.

CONSIDER: Literature is not a closed world, but a whole rich complicated quilt of landscapes.

When researching and writing a literary analysis, do use major literary resource databases. But also, use databases that cover history, sociology, culture, psychology – all the worlds that literature overlaps into and sometimes becomes a part of, comes from or has occasionally influenced.

When researching and writing a literary analysis, do use major literary resource databases. But also, use databases that cover history, sociology, culture, psychology – all the worlds that literature overlaps into and sometimes becomes a part of, comes from or has occasionally influenced.

These are common databases that can be located at academic libraries and some public and school libraries. Gale’s Literature Resource Center includes full text articles from reference books and scholarly journals. Another feature of this database is a link to The Gale Literary Index , which lists more references in print materials. Can limit search to primary source document. Literary Reference Center is a full text database that includes literary criticism, biographies, plot summaries, book reviews, poems, short stories and novels. Humanities Full Text Wilson is a wide ranging database that not only includes literary criticism, but is excellent for finding and researching historical, world view and topical issues in various contexts. Academic Search Complete has broad topical coverage of many topics. Expanded Academic ASAP covers a variety of specific literary journals ( Explicator, Studies in Romanticism, Victorian Poetry …). A majority of journals are peer reviewed. Also covers social sciences and humanities.

These are common databases that can be located at academic libraries and some public and school libraries.

These are common databases that can be located at academic libraries and some public and school libraries. JSTOR is a digital scholarly archive built by and for scholars. It is particularly strong in primary sources and authors from previous centuries. Essay and General Literature is not a full text database. It is a source to find essays and criticisms collected in anthologies. The title of the collection can then be searched in the book catalog. Netlibrary while the library catalog searches the titles, subject and keywords to this eBook collection, the Netlibrary search does a full text search. This online service includes series such as Cambridge Companions to Literature, Bloom's Notes and Cliff’s Notes. While the full text search pulls up many results, this is a great way to find essays, comparisons and hard to find literary references. OmniFile Full Text Mega is a powerful all in one search. Contains Omni Education Full Text, General Science Full Text, Humanities Full Text, Readers' Guide Full Text, Social Sciences Full Text, Wilson Business Full Text.

These are common databases that can be located at academic libraries and some public and school libraries.
