Emily Dickinson

Welcome to the Research Guide for WRIT 105 / ENG 120: Critical Interpretation.  Feel free to contact me if you need additional help (see sidebar on the right).


Get Started - SuperSearch!

SuperSearch is a great place to start looking for encyclopedia articles (to put an poet and their life into context), as well as journal articles, books, and almost everything else the library has, in one easy-to-use interface.


Limit your search with the options (such as Content Type: Reference) on the left of the search screen.

Biographies and other Contexts


To find full-length biographies of your poet, search for "[poet name] biography". You may also try some of the resources below.
