Keep in mind:
The MLA International Bibliography, the Gale Literary Criticism, and the World Shakespeare Bibliography Online normalize the spelling of authors' and subjects' names; e.g., Shakspear, Shakespear, Shackspeare, and Shakspere (etc.) are indexed as Shakespeare. The preferred form of the name is given in "name as subject" at the top of the page in the MLA International Bibliography and as "Person -- by or about" in the Gale Literary Criticism.
The Cambridge Collections Online, JSTOR, and Project MUSE are excellent indexes but also include much material that is not literary. You may have luck adding to your search an additional term such as literary or criticism.
