hi everyone,
I'm pretty sure what I'll say is redundant to all of you but!!! Enough i'll say it 'i am new and Ineed your HELP'. I will sit for an exam soon. it will be on either Melville's "Benito Cereno" or Shakespeare's Othello or Woolf's Mrs Dalloway, or wordsworth's poetry. how lucky I am!! I would be extremely grateful if the ones who studied these works would so kind to post me the titles or links where I can find useful and rich critics, essays, ... on these works. especially that of Melville
thanks a lot

No links, unfortunately - they're availabe as Pdfs on college databases - but here are some essays that helped me when I was writing mine:

“Point of View in ‘Benito Cereno: Machinations and Deceptions” - Mary Rohrberger
“The Topicality of Depravity” - Allan Moore Emery
"Follow Your Leader: Knowing Ones Place in 'Benito Cereno'" - Darryl Hattenhauer
“Melville’s Riddle for Our Time: ‘Benito Cereno’” - Theodore L. Gaillar
