MLA International Bibliography

MLA is the main database for literary criticism and allows for very specific thematic searching combined with individual authors and works (e.g., Carr, Marina and By the Bog of Cats). Or search for thematic  topics: Irish and drama (subjects) and violence (keyword). However, literary criticism may be harder to find for very contemporary authors, even more so for women and/or ethnic authors.  Articles + (above) will link to news publications as well as to journals.
