To begin, narrow your topic. Be specific in your thesis statement.

You can narrow your topic by focusing on a particular author or particular work by that author.

You should also consider narrowing your topic by focusing on a specific type of literature, either by nationality (British, American), era (20th century, 19th century) or type (novels, plays, poetry). 

Below are several databases that provided resources for your paper but you will need to need to refine your topic so you aren't overwhelmed by the results.  These databases are featured in the Literary Research LibGuide, a one-stop place for resources on this topic.

If you have any further questions or help refining your topic please stop by or contact us at the Reference desk.
