For many years, English majors were required to buy a printed literary handbook for use in their classes at Winthrop. However, in this electronic age, the Department determined that many of the resources in a print literary handbook were already available on the Internet, making a print version less necessary to students. At the same time, electronic resources can also provide a wide range of supplements to a print handbook, allowing students wider access to information they may need in their studies. Therefore, the Department in 2008 moved to an "Electronic English Major's Handbook" of resources for our students. This tool is required for all English majors beginning with the 2008-2009 catalog and is strongly recommended for all English majors, period. We encourage you to try out these links, let us know if they are useful to you, and suggest others. We want this to be an interactive and up-to-date resource for your needs as you pursue your degree in English at Winthrop University.
Here's what you'll find in the Electronic Handbook:
Tools for Literary Analysis
Tools for Writing about Literature
Tools for Literary Research
Tools for Your Future
Other Useful Tools
