I'd begin with a good Literary Dictionary: The John Hopkins Guide to Literary Theory & Criticism REF PN81.J554 2005. Once you have a definition of "ethical criticism," you can find peer-reviewed articles through several databases available from the our literary criticism subject guide page. You will need your SURF ID and password to access these databases from home.
From the WWW, here is the link to Purdue's Online Writing Lab and some definitions of various literary theories: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/722/1/
I hope this helps, please contact a Reference Librarian in person or on the phone if you need more assistance.
