Hi, Leah.  Thanks for your email!  Gale Literary Criticism online is the perfect place to search for what you need.  This database is found in the Arts & Sciences collection of databases and you can do a simple keyword search to get secondary literary criticism resourcces- just type Cheever Swimmer into the search bar and there are at least 23 pieces of criticism that you might choose from.

To review, from Neumann's web page, click on Academics (ribbon across top) and then the Library link (left).  On the Library pages, select "Databases & Journals" (on left), then "Arts & Sciences" (in center), and then scroll down until you come to Gale Literature Criticism Online and click (NOT the index).  Then type in Cheever Swimmer and choose the results you will get back to use in your paper.  Follow those steps or watch the very brief video I created to show you the steps in action: http://screencast.com/t/5qMbMwJF6jlJ

ONE THING TO KNOW: If you are not on campus you will get a prompt after clicking on the Literature Criticism Online database asking you to log in.  Just use your Neumann username and password and then you will have smooth sailing!

Best of luck on your paper and please let us know if we can help with anything else.  Bye!
