What is a good research site that has citations in it?

Asked by troubleinharlem (7976points) March 29th, 2010

I’m looking for a good website with literary criticisms (preferably Wuthering Heights) and analytical essays. I’ve been searching online for about an hour, and I keep getting essays that are used for cheating… anyone have any sites that I can use?

@janbb knows a lot about research and literature. It’s a holiday evening for her, but I will send her this, and maybe she can tell you tomorrow.

I got a bunch of hits on google using:
“Wuthering Heights” criticism .edu. Can’t
say if it helps.

When are you kids going to do your own homework? We had to actually go to the library and read actual books. You can type in a few keystrokes and come up with billions of bits of information. You have tools that most of us never even dreamed of having.
Use them and stop being lazy.

@SeventhSense Unless you’re kidding, that seems unfair to me. What she’s asking for is help winnowing out the shit sites from the productive ones, and that’s actually a very good question to ask.

Your best bet would be to use a data base provided by your school or public library. Sometimes you can access these from home . A few to try would be; literary resource center and literature research center or Jstor. Try looking at your library’s homepage and see if you can get to one of these. There is also a website called victorianweb.edu that should help and the library should have a set called 19th Century Literary Criticism that would be very useful. On the web, look for sites with an .edu extension. Good luck! Oh – also try searching “Google Scholar.”

Yes suppose I was hasty. My apologies to @troubleinharlem, she’s more conscientious them I’m giving her credit for. I guess it was a knee jerk response.

@SeventhSense : I had done that, but I was at home when I posted this and wasn’t able to get back to the school library. Besides, it was closed. Furthermore, I was searching online for essays, but it gave me essays that were supposed to be bought, and that would be cheating. But thank you for apologizing. (:
