To find literary criticism, go to the library's website, select the Databases tab, click on the Databases by Subject link, and select Literature from the list of subjects. On this page you will see a search box (as shown below). Type the author's name, in this case Rolf Jacobsen, into the search box and click the blue and white button.
This will open a new window or tab with results from our Literature databases. To narrow your results to a particular poem, look for this box at the top of the left-hand column:
Remove the author's name from the search box and replace it with the name of a poem (or short story, play, or novel). Leave the checkmark by "within these results." Click GO. This will bring up a new list of results that are specifically about the literary work you searched for.
Results in these databases are divided up into tabs, as seen below:
The Literature Criticism and Topic & Work Overviews tabs are the best bets for the critiques you are looking for.
