Research guide for English1B - Professor Sydney Sims

Literary Criticism

  • There are different kinds of literary criticism.  The Purdue University guide Literary Theory and Schools of Criticism explains different forms of literary criticism. *Each type of criticism has a "Typical Questions" section that can serve as a possible prompt to start writing. 
  • It is not uncommon in literary critiques to see several works of an author discussed, or to see a work compared to the works of other authors.  In other sources, the author's works may be discussed in the context of his or her life. 

  • Give yourself plenty of time to complete your assignment, including doing your works cited page.  Literary Criticism can be more time-consuming than other research assignments.
