To the young man looking for Euripides plays

I just helped a student find plays by Euripides in the OSF stacks.  He had the correct call number (that he got from CLICnet) and was close to where he needed to be when I saw him.  I mentioned if he was looking for a summary or overview of the work, criticism, or author info that he should use Literature Criticism Online.  LCO is absolutely bursting at the seams with literary info.  Here’s what’s covered:

    Contemporary Literary Criticism
    Twentieth-Century Literary Criticism
    Nineteenth-Century Literature Criticism
    Shakespeare Criticism
    Literature Criticism 1400-1800
    Classical and Medieval Literature Criticism
    Poetry Criticism
    Short Story Criticism
    Drama Criticism
    Children’s Literature Review

So if you are taking an English class that requires you to better understand a work of literature, get biographical information on an author, playwright or poet,  find criticism on a work or get a handle on literary themes then LCO is your one-stop shop.  It just couldn’t get any easier.  Or could it?

Maybe you’d rather watch than read. If so, check out Films on Demand where you can watch Medea performed at the Kennedy Center in 1982.  There you can also find a lot of information on Euripides, classical drama, mythology, etc. etc. etc.  It’s pretty cool.
