Advice for finding literary criticism in books

Another source of literary criticism is the literary essays book format. These books are available in the library's reference section, meaning they are for in-house library use only, as well as ebooks you can acces anywhere via the Internet, and books that can be borrowed from the library. Be careful to stay away from plot summaries and biographical information.
