Find eBooks

If you don’t get many results with a search of the author and the name of the story, try a keyword search with just the author’s name and the word criticism. The records of some books will list the Table of Contents of the book, and you may be able to ascertain from the chapter titles whether or not the book refers to the particular story you are researching. If it is not clear from the catalog record, you will need to find the book and look at the Table of Contents and the Index for references to the story
