Try typing in the title of the play or character and/or author and a major theme as search terms:
EX: Henry V and Shakespeare OR Henry V and Machiavelli
Articles will come up. Read the first page or two to ensure that the articles are relevant to your chosen theme. Write a paragraph or two explaining why you think these articles are relevant to your paper. Did reading the articles make you change your mind about anything? Do you disagree with the articles at any point?
