Gale Literary Resources: LitFinder

Overview and features of Gale's literary databases

LitFinderLitFinder contains literature content from all time periods, and specializes in poems and poem excerpts. It is a useful companion to Literature Resource Center, but whereas Literature Resource Center contains critical essays, work overviews, and other documents related to literary criticism, LitFinder focuses on the works and creators themselves.

Here is where you'll find the full text of Shakespeare's sonnets, every presidential inaugural address, the short stories of Edgar Allen Poe, and so much more.
