    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.

    "It is a fine reference book to be in the stock of any good reference library. It is also a special book for anyone who has love for poetry, and a joy in celebrating the human condition at its best." UK Library Association Record

    "This excellent Encyclopedia is brilliant in a way so many intellectual projects are not: it is readable... The scope of this book is truly amazing: it gives evidence not only of the tremendous explosion in scholarly 'recuperation' that has taken place in the past three decades, but also of the great effort of editing and compilation in these areas necessary to bring into being works such as this Encyclopedia...This creative and learned book is more than useful: it's stimulating."
