Secondary (Scholarly) Sources

Use the following databases ONLY for the expansion of Essay #2.  

These collections are where published essays and articles by prior critics about our novels might be found. These essays are not mere blogs or articles on the internet, but articles published in professional academic and peer-reviewed journals to which the UT Libraries pay for a separate subscription.  

When it comes to your essays, do not go searching here for starter ideas (you risk, at best, being derivative and, at worst, plagiarism). But eventually turn to these sites for the existing academic conversation about the topic that you have already identified on your own in your essay draft.

For more information about the types of secondary, scholarly sources you may encounter in your searches, refer to the "Types of Secondary Sources" page.
