Beloved AND The Bluest Eye = results will have everything that has those two words, but not appearing in a resource individually.
Allegory OR Allusion = results will include everything that includes the words together or individually in a resource
"literary theory" NOT psychoanalysis = results will include all literary theory, but not psychoanalysis.
