With more than 400 entries, the Encyclopedia of American Poetry: The Twentieth Century explores a broad range of individual poets and poems, along with many articles devoted to discrete topics, schools, or periods of American verse in the century. In order to capture the abundance and diversity of twentieth-century American poetry, the entries fall into several categories. Poet entries provide biographical and cultural contexts for the author's career, with critical evaluation of the most significant poems or volumes of verse in her/his development. Articles on individual works offer closer explanations of the most resonant poems in the twentieth-century canon, while topical entries present analyses of a given period of literary production (i.e., the Harlem Renaissance), a formal rubric (Free Verse), a school or a distinctive mode of expression, a more thematically constructed category, and other verse traditions that historically have been in dialogue with the poetry of the United States (Canadian Poetry, Caribbean Poetry).
