About Twentieth-Century American Poetry

Provides full-text poems from modern and contemporary American poets.

Presently includes 36,000 poems drawn from 460 volumes by 217 poets.

Generally, the policy has been to use first editions whenever possible; later editions were selected if they were more inclusive. Where poems appeared in their original dialect in an earlier edition and standardized in a later edition, both forms have been included for comparison purposes. Poems originally published in periodicals have also been included.
