Guide to resources for the modern languages, literatures, and cultures of Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.


Welcome to the Languages and Literatures Resource guide to information about dictionaries of language, literary terms, and authors. I've also included suggestions for finding literary criticism and primary works of literature. For more detailed suggestions, please check the Resource Guides to Modern Cultures and Literatures, Italian,  Latin American and Iberian Studies, English, and Classical Studies.  I hope this is helpful and if you need assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
