This resource provides biographical information on authors from Scribner's Authors Series and Contemporary Authors, in-depth literary essays from Twayne's Authors Series and Gales' extensive Literary Criticism Series and in-depth journal reviews from Gales' One File magazine collection. In addition, LitFinder provides a wide variety of poetry, short stories and essays titles in full-text. Literary Criticism from Gale is a great source for high school and college students researching literary criticism on poetry, short stories and novels.
