     You might have heard of this one:) but the
Introductory Guide to Critical Theory put out by
Purdue is online and really nice. As a student, I must
say that it is just the swellest thing going because
you can read of some of the very great thinkers of
literature and learn of supplemental reading to be had
that can allow you to increase your knowledge. 

here is the hyperlink...


It covers all of these great folks..

This has been cut and pasted...
The Modules now available are for Sigmund Freud,
Jacques Lacan and Julia Kristeva (under
Psychoanalysis); for Roland Barthes, Peter Brooks, and
Algirdas Greimas (under Narratology); for Michel
Foucault and Judith Butler (under Gender and Sex); for
Karl Marx, Fredric Jameson and Louis Althusser (under
Marxism); for Michel Foucault and Stephen Greenblatt
(under New Historicism); and for Linda Hutcheon, Jean
Baudrillard, and Fredric Jameson (under
This web site...


is just as swell as the other one, but it is far more
academic in nature and not as introductory. it is
really for the philosophy of literature.

the literary encyclopedia...


Has a great many resources. If you look at the portion
of the homepage that says other, there is a link that
says guide...this link has a nice list of terms and
all of that. It is a very nice web site because it is
far less heavy than any huge book!

the London School of Journalism...


Has the motherload of links that are very good for
what you need for your students. I have not checked to
see if every link is working, it is a huge web site!

This is a very basic timeline of British Literature...


It is nice if you are a student and are not very well
read with history, like myself!

A handbook of rhetorical devices is found here...


It is not about the most ancient forms or anything,
but it is fair enough. The main web site, the homepage
for this is here...


The have "reading notes" that are just something I
would not look at! But, their little glossary is neato
and a good spring board for further reading.

I am an undergraduate student and these web sites are
fine to me. Except the "reading notes" on the last web
site, those are silly. Hopefully, this will help you.

Haz el bien, y no mires a quién.   
Death is a commingling of eternity with time; in the death of a good man, eternity is seen looking through time.
