    1. Use online resources such as JSTOR to locate articles on the set authors. You will find their short fiction neglected relative to their novels, but it is worth skimming through criticism of other texts as ideas may well be relevant to their short fiction too.

      Consider reading material relating to feminist literary criticism, women's writing, and Spanish literature in general: deciding the extent to which what you read in these larger categories is applicable to a specific text or author not mentioned in the theoretical writing can lead to intelligent debate.

      Consider reading some of the more famous works by the authors of the short stories (the novels you keep seeing cited in the criticism). It will give you more context for the author and help you to judge the quality of the criticism.

      Use the Senate House Library as well as resources in College. The catalogue there can be searched, books reserved or fetch requests logged remotely. Senate House Library books can be returned to a drop-box on the Royal Holloway campus.

      Organize with others to collect books for you and you return the favour so that trips into town can be made worthwhile and you use your time efficiently.

       

      Be willing to lend and always return books and articles lent by others promptly and your friends will be willing to go on letting you borrow. Everyone gains and nobody loses by such collaboration. Once your essay is returned to you, let others read it and you ask to read their work; you can learn much from seeing work judged better and worse than your own or the same, as it will almost always have got the same mark for different reasons.
