How do I search for criticism for a particular author or work?

  • For general criticism, search the author's first and last name and "criticism" as subject keyword. All general criticism is listed under [Last name, First name] -- Criticism and interpretation. (For example, Mann, Thomas, 1875-1955 -- Criticism and interpretation.)
  • Criticism on a particular title are listed under the author's name and the original title of the work. For example, for Mann's Magic Mountain: Mann, Thomas, 1875-1955. Zauberberg.)
  • Titles not attributed an author can be searched under SUBJECT (e.g. Nibelungenlied)
  • Also try keyword searches for more hits.
