For a shelf-browsing, call number approach, use the 2008 edition of the Library of Congress Classification for PR, PS, and PZ, located adjacent to the Library of Congress Subject Headings on the green cabinet beneath Shakespeare's portrait on the library's seventh floor. It is an extremely detailed listing that can locate books on specific topics more precisely than can the LCSH, which is useful for locating books on broad subject areas.
The classification for the entire class P of language and literature can be found here:
