The easy way to do it is find the elements or topics of a novel that you would like to focus on first. There are a few databases that you can use to accomplish this task. Bloom's Literature is a good one. With Bloom's Literature, you can search by 'authors'. 'works', or 'characters'. At the result page, above search results, you will see different tabs. 'Topics and themes' is one of them. Results under that tab are articles discussing themes and topics of that particular novel.
