About this title

Synopsis:

This series provides an in-depth analytical reference guide to the major writers of poetry, allowing readers to look at the characteristics which mark an author's work.

From Library Journal:

This major revision of the original edition (Salem Pr., 1982) includes articles on 368 English-language poets and 22 essays on periods and critical approaches. Twenty-seven entries are new, 44 are "rewritten entirely," and dozens of such minor poets as Thomas Bailey Aldrich and Hartley Coleridge have been dropped. The entries average about ten pages each and include sections on principal works, achievements, biography, and analysis. The articles provide more information than those in most encyclopedias yet are short enough to serve immediate reference needs. Although most entries have not been changed from the earlier edition, all the bibliographies have been updated and, better yet, annotations have been added. The set might have been more accurately entitled Critical Survey of Poets , since its focus is on the poets rather than the specific poems already covered in Magill's Masterplots II: Poetry Series ( LJ 7/92). Still, this is an excellent revision that should prove very useful to collections serving students of poetry.
