Dear members of community!
Please help me to make a request for google and other search engines. I need to find several lexemes in English literature (poetry, romance, belle-lettres) but i don't know how to get rid of other sources using logical operators. For instance, the word needed is lion. What should i put into the search?

And the second question. I also use these corpora - http://corpus.byu.edu/bnc/ and http://www.americancorpus.org/
i want to find other corpora containing English and American literature but of earlier time periods - 14-19 centuries.
I will be very grateful for your prompts and help!
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!
