The Literature Lover’s Mother-Lode

Are you a short story or poetry fan? Are you searching for short stories by authors such as Thomas Hardy or Charles Dickens for an English class project? Or perhaps sweet poems like “A Thought for Mother’s Day” by Mamie Collins Barry for Mom this Mother’s Day? How about a soothing story about the flowers and birds of spring such as “Buds and Bird-Voices” by Nathaniel Hawthorne?

The LitFinder database from Gale Cengage Learning provides full text access to a wide variety of plays, short stories, poems, speeches and essays. For each item it also lists the title of the book or periodical where it was published. The topics and authors covered by this database range from classics like poetry by Robert Burns to science fiction stories by H.G. Wells.

So, click the link below and discover the literary treasures contained in this wonderful database!

Note: This database is available through BadgerLink and can be accessed for free by Wisconsin residents, including UW-Whitewater students, faculty, and staff, who access it within the state.
