Why Can't I Find Literary Criticism with Google?
Using Google for searches is fast, fun and usually gives you tons of results. However, when you are searching for specific critical articles about works of literature, you will discover that using online databases is a better way to find exactly what you need. The State Library of Kansas subscribes to the Literature Resource Center, which previously was only available for a fee.
