Modern Irish Literary Criticism
Articles on Irish language literature are not always easy to find. The most useful online sources are likely to be the MLA Bibliography and JSTOR.
This is an index to articles and books on language and literature. Coverage of Irish language and literature is constantly expanding. The indexing is quite thorough, and so it can be searched using subject keywords. While the Bibliography does not include full text, links are provided if the article is available in full text elsewhere.
This is a database, or collection of journals online. To search, words that appear in the text must be used, but search terms can be specified as occurring in the "full-text", the title, the author's name, or the abstract.
