From the database homepage, click "Search all criticism." On the resulting page, just to the right of the Subject heading: search box, click "Look up subject heading."

Check the radio button next to the subjects you are interested in, and then click Add to search. Finally, click the Search button to retrieve a highly targeted, relevant list of literary criticisms.
