Often in the context of the creative arts, the primary source is the work of art itself. Secondary sources analyze, interpret, and review the primary source. For example, concerning a literature course assignment, the novel you are reading is the primary source, and articles of literary criticism about the novel and/or its author would be secondary sources.
