H 1155.6  Literary Works Entered Under Author


PATTERN:  Shakespeare, William, 1564-1616.  Hamlet


TYPES OF HEADINGS COVERED BY THE PATTERN:  Uniform titles of literary works, or sections therof, that are entered under author.  Examples:  Dante Alighieri, 1265-1321.  Divina commedia; Tolstoy, Leo, graf, 1828-1910.  Voĭna i mir; Goethe, Johann Wolfgang von, 1749-1832.  Faust.  1. Theil; Hemingway, Ernest, 1899-1961.  Sun also rises.  For subdivisions used under literary works entered directly under title, with no author designation, including anonymous and multi-authored works, see H 1155.8.


CONFLICTS:  Any subdivision listed here can be used as a free-floating subdivision under any heading belonging to the category if it is appropriate and no conflict exists in the subject authority file.  Subject authority records may exist for headings employing variant phrases or subdivisions equivalent to subdivisions on this list.


LC practice:

If an exceptional variant form is to be retained, make a UF reference from the equivalent free-floating subdivision form following the procedures in H 195 if the reference does not yet exist.  Otherwise, submit a proposal to change the variant form along with all bibliographic records requiring correction following the procedures in H 193.


SPECIAL PROVISIONS:  The subdivisions listed in H 1095 as authorized for use under subjects in general, for example, –Bibliography or –Exhibitions, or under individual works (author-title or title entries), for example, –Concordances or –Sources, are also free-floating under literary works.  The subdivisions used under literary works entered under author are closely related to the subdivisions used under names of individual literary authors (H 1110).  For general criticism and interpretation of a work, assign the unsubdivided heading:  [author].  [title].  To bring out any other aspect of literary analysis pertaining to an individual work, assign an additional heading for the author with the appropriate subdivision.
