ENGL105 - Locating Literary Analysis: Finding the texts

These links will help with the Unit 3 "A Companion to..." assignment.

Finding short stories online

There are many web sites for online collections of literary fiction, many of which include short stories. Below is a small selection from what is available. Also, a Google search may turn up online versions of a short story (e.g., Faulkner and Barn Burning). However, as with all free web sites, it may be difficult to determine the accuracy and authenticity of the material.

Finding short stories in books

Searching the catalog for short stories:

  • Change the drop-down menu at the top from "All Fields" to "Author"
  • Search for your author's full name
  • On the left sidebar, find the "About Topic" filter
  • Click on more, and select "short stories"
