A valuable resource for comparing characters in a story is the database Literature Resource Center. To access the list of databases, go to the LRC homepage and click on Databases, or click here. You will see a list of databases. Scroll down to Literature Resource Center and select it. If you are off campus, you will need to put in a username and a password. Your username is your 7-digit TCL ID. Your password is your first initial of your first name followed by the last three digits of your social secuirty number.
For best results, you may want to use the Advanced Search function, located at the top of the page.
In the three rows select “keyword." Type the names of the characters in the boxes. You may also want to type in a term like "characters." Click "Search."
The results will be grouped by source type. For example, the literary criticisms will be grouped together, the biographies together, etc. Click on a resource in the list to read it or click on one of the blue-hilighted tabs at the top of the page to see other source results.
