Ideas for finding sources

How you might think about sources:

  • Biographical or autobiographical information about the author(s) 

  • Literary analyses of works

  • Historical events

Maybe this is oversimplified, but it's often the case that your thesis will invovle historical events that may have shaped an author's life, biographical accounts of the author's life, and critical responses to the author's work.
