Literature CRITICAL SURVEYS: POETRY An in-depth resource covering 843 poets throughout history and the world–organized so libraries can select only the topics they want. Critical Survey of Poetry profiles major poets throughout history and the world, and includes an analysis of their significant individual poems or collections. Essays begin with full data on dates and places of birth and/or death, and a list of the poet’s “Principal Poetry.” Next is a brief overview of “Other Literary Forms” and two longer sections, “Achievements” and “Biography.” The longest section, “Analysis,” discusses the poet’s work and examines several poems. The final section includes a bibliography containing up-to-date resources. This edition has the added benefit of being organized into five subsets by geography and essay type: A four-volume subset on American Poets; a three-volume subset on British, Irish and Commonwealth Poets; a three-volume subset on European Poets; a one-volume subset on World Poets; and a two- volume subset of Topical Essays. A Cumulative Indexes volume covering all five subsets is free with purchase of one or more subsets. The poet subsets are arranged alphabetically, and each poet appears in only one subset. A number of helpful resources and indexes appear in the back of each subset including a bibliography, a guide to online resources, a glossary of poetic terms, a list of major awards, a chronological list of poets, a geographical index of poets & essays, a categorized index of poets, and a subject index. • 14 Volumes; 6,778 Pages • 843 Entries • Pronunciation Key • List of Major Awards • Subject Index • Divided into 5 Subsets • 79 Overviews; 22 New • Bibliography • Chronological List of Poets • 1 Volume of Cumulative Indexes • 500+ Photos and Portraits • Guide to Online Resources • Categorized Index of Poets AT A GLANCE 14 Volume Set | January 2011 | Print ISBN: 978-1-58765-582-1 (entire set) | Library Price: $1,295 Critical Survey of Poetry Edited by Rosemary M.
