that I think will be of interest to
my readers. Links to poets' sites are given on their individual pages. – Editor
(In alphabetical order)
The Able Muse: http://www.ablemuse.com
The Able Muse is an online magazine which features poetry, art, articles, interviews, book reviews, and contests. It also has a popular poetry forum called Eratosphere, although caution is advised: a group mentality exists on the critical boards which can be unconstructive. Excessive use of java scripts in the magazine section can crash your browser.
The Academy of American Poets: http://www.poets.org/index.cfm
The AAP maintains an extensive list of poets which includes biographical segments, photos and/or paintings of each poet, as well as a small selection of poems by many (but not all) poets in the list. Both traditional and modern poetry is featured. Admittedly, I have not explored this site at length, but it contains other useful information.
Alsop Review: http://www.alsopreview.com
The Alsop Review is an online literary journal which has articles, poems and other good stuff. Their online poetry anthology is larger than this one.
Bartleby.com publishes entire books of poetry on the internet, but only those books which have fallen into the public domain.
Bob's Byway (Glossary of Poetic Terms): http://www.poeticbyway.com/glossary.html
This is the personal site of Robert G. Shubinski. He maintains an excellent glossary of poetic terms.
Expansive Poetry & Music Online: http://www.n2hos.com/acm/
This is an online journal devoted to formalist poetry and music. It is administered by Arthur Mortensen, who also runs Somers Rocks Press. The site has articles, reviews and announcements. Some good articles can be found, especially those by guest writers, but beware their resident critic, Dr. Joseph Salemi, who seeks notoriety by attacking other poets.
The HyperTexts: http://www.thehypertexts.com
The HyperTexts is a small online anthology of metered poetry, somewhat similar to this site. It also has quotes from various writers, some song lyrics, some art, and a poetry contest.
Poets' Corner: http://www.theotherpages.org/poems/index.html
Named after the Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey, this site is possibly the most comprehensive poetry anthology on the internet. It is maintained by four poetry lovers. However, it includes only poetry which has fallen into the public domain (meaning poetry published before 1923), and typos abound.
