Modern and Contemporary American Poetry

Photo, Jack Kerouac

This site consists of hundreds of poems by major and minor figures--from Emily Dickinson to William Carlos Williams and Allen Ginsberg to contemporary artists and writers--hundreds of links to poetry resources, and a "readings schedule" for a course in American poetry. Also offers materials as diverse as audio clips, newspaper articles, and television spots. Although the organization is haphazard, this is a rewarding and eclectic site packed with primary documents and leads for further work.
