  • Coverage Dates: 1901 - 1997

The American Poetry 2 full-text database contains modern and contemporary American poetry from the early twentieth century to the present. It includes 12,000 poems drawn from over 130 volumes by over 100 poets, including Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, Denise Levertov, Wallace Stevens, Langston Hughes, and Cathy Song.

American Poetry 2 is a growing collection of poetry written by the most important and influential poets of the 20th century. Many contemporary writers of America's 80s and 90s, who have gained recognition through national poetry awards or inclusion within leading print anthologies, are also represented. The works of selected poets have been included when the publisher of the printed work has granted Chadwyck-Healey electronic rights.

American Poetry 2 aims to include as full a collection of the published works of each poet as possible. When available, a poet's collected edition has been keyed. Exceptions are for poets whose collected editions are not yet in print or complete. In most cases, the editions have been provided by the publishers. In general, only a single version of each poem has been included, and when available, the most recent and complete version of each poem has been keyed. As well, every poem has been indexed within its edition's table of contents. Where Chadwyck-Healey has not secured electronic rights to publish the full text of an individual poem or series of poems within its respective edition, Chadwyck-Healey has provided a statement to this effect where the full text of these poems would normally be displayed.

The entire text of each poem has been included. Any accompanying text forming an integral part of the poetry, such as dedications, notes, acknowledgments, prefaces, introductions, and epigraphs, is generally included, provided Chadwyck-Healey has secured electronic rights for the material.
