In your ENGU 104 class, you are asked to read two dramas: Much Ado About Nothing and Gem of the Ocean. Both of them are fantastic, but you might have chosen to focus on the more modern of the two. You read the play carefully and start to perform some research in the Leatherby Libraries. Here are some tips to help you find material for your paper.

First of all, as a modern drama, there has not been much written about Gem. Don’t despair. This gives the opportunity to do your own critical thinking rather than just reciting someone else’s. To access the few articles of literary criticism or analysis about the play, start with an Advanced Search in Discover. Use the search terms below.


Since there are few articles, another way to approach the play is to perform research on themes such as slavery, redemption, atonement, abolition, or feminism. After learning about these concepts, you can write about how they are revealed in the play. This takes some critical thinking, so be sure to start your research early.

As always, please ask a librarian if you need further assistance.
