We have pulled a cart of short story, and poetry books from our collection. These books have sticky note tabs marking examples of Gothic poetry or short stories. Teams may also search the Table of Contents and/or the Glossary for particular terms, titles, or authors to locate additional works.
From our own database collection, you might have success with:
Gale Discovery Collection > Literature > Literature topics, genres, movements. Do searches such as “Gothic poems,” or “Gothic stories,” or specific authors, titles, terms.
Ebsco > Novelist Plus > use similar searches as suggested for Gale.
ProQuest > eLibrary. Search by title, author, or other keyword.
ProQuest > LION > view the Poets on Screen selection. These are living authors reading their own works, and works of other authors who are deceased. OR click on “Literary Works” and do a search for Gothic Poetry or a specific author or title.
