Finding Criticism in QuickSearch

Helpful Hint: Use the subject phrase "criticism and interpretation" as part of your search in QuickSearch.

For example, an Advanced subject "contains" search for:

Saramago, José -- Criticism and interpretation

will only display books about the works of José Saramago, not the works he wrote.

If the author's name is not a common one you will also want to use the basic search to do a keyword search. This will return results where the author is mentioned in the table of contents, but may not be the subject of the whole book. It will also return articles.
