Critique Resources: Home

A "critique" is a paper that gives a critical assessment of a book or article.

Important Information

Due to renovation, the library third floor and its books are currently unavailable, and offices have been relocated. Please contact a reference librarian if you need assistance.

Welcome!

To critique a piece of writing requires that you be a critical reader. To be a critical reader requires careful evaluation and study of a poem, an essay, an article, or a great piece of literature like The Hunchback of Notre Dame, by Victor Hugo. This guide will identify various sources that will assist you in the process. 

These books, both electronic and print, will assist you in the process of writing a critique
