Finding a Particular Work of Literature

To find a particular work of literature, then try to do a title/author (if there is an author) search.  If you're looking for a short work of literature that might be in an anthology, then try the title as a keyword search and it will find it in the table of contents of the book (if it has one listed).

*Try to pick a version of the work that is published by a scholarly/university press.
