When you study literature you are determining what written works are of superior or lasting artistic merit. Literature is generally understood to be comprised of three genres; Poetry, Drama, & Prose.
If you need to locate a journal in a specific subject area, or if you know the specific title of a journal you would like to search within, begin at York's E-Journal portal. To browse by title simply enter the title of the journal you are looking for, example: Dickens Quarterly, and hit the search button. If you would like to browse journal titles in a specific subject area, example: American Literature or Philology & Linguistics, go to the pull-down menu and select Languages & Literatures, then click on the subject heading of your choice.
