With contributions from over 100 scholars, the Encyclopedia of American Poetry: The Nineteenth Centry provides essays on the careers, works, and backgrounds of more than 100 nineteenth-century poets. It also provides entries on specialized categories of twentieth-century verse such as hymns, folk ballads, spirituals, Civil War songs, and Native American poetry. Besides presenting essential factual information, each entry amounts to an in-depth critical essay, and includes a bibliography that directs readers to other works by and about a particular poet.

Book News
A reference companion to the two-volume anthology American Poetry: The Nineteenth Century published in 1993. Essays focus on the works in that collection and furnish not only useful facts and dates, biographical background, and information on the provenance of the poetry, but a critical discussion of the formal features, literary-historical significance, and cultural relevance of the verses being addressed. Also covers many more works per author. Entries are arranged alphabetically and presented in a two-column format. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
