Additional Vendor Information and Help

English Poetry is the most comprehensive electronic archive of English poetry available. On its launch in 1992 (on CD-ROM), it was described by Edwin Morgan as a 'Shelleyan universal anthology waiting to be dipped into by random hands', and since then it has become recognised as an indispensable research tool for scholars and students from around the world.

The collection contains over 160,000 poems, essentially comprising the complete canon of English poetry of the British Isles from the 8th century to around 1900. Drawn from nearly 4,500 printed sources, more than 1,250 poets are represented. For more information visit: https://proquest.libguides.com/englishpoetry
