La Cle des procedes litteraires is my main resource for literature courses. This is an encyclopedia of literary genres, figures and ways of expression with examples from famous texts. I recommend it to advanced and graduate students when I assign an "explication de texte". Since there are various ways of using this resource, I would recommend to choose "genres litteraires" to start exploring the site.
