Literary Criticism focused on Poetry
Poetry Criticism through Literature Criticism Online assembles critical responses to the writings of the world’s most renowned poets and provides supplementary biographical context and bibliographic material to guide the reader to a greater understanding of the genre and its creators. Although poets and poetry are also covered in other Literary Criticism Online collections, Poetry Criticism offers more focused attention on poetry than is possible in the broader, survey-oriented entries in those series. The series currently covers more than 500 poets and authors, and also includes numerous entries focusing on individual works.
Clear, accessible introductory essays followed by carefully selected critical responses allow end-users to engage with a variety of scholarly views and conversations about poets and their works. Students writing papers or class presentations, instructors preparing their syllabi, or anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the genre will find this a highly useful resource.
Poetry Criticism combines multiple search and browse options with an engaging format that matches the look and feel of the print originals.
