Book reviews may not be as analytical or scholarly as criticism, but reflect more immediate reaction to a book upon publication. This page provides Tips and Resources for finding Book Reviews in databases and other sources.
Finding criticism of specific poems or stories can sometimes be difficult. If you're stuck, try searching the full text in the databases or in Google Book Search. These print reference books can also be helpful:
