One of the most fascinating – as well as ENORMOUS – repositories of poetry on the Internet is a vast, rambling, straggling site called The Hypertexts. The link here will take you to a listing of hundreds and hundreds of good poets, ancient and modern, well-known and obscure, formal and free, with and without expositions by the site’s creator, poet Michael R. Burch.
Want to read William Blake? Or Ronald Reagan’s (surprisingly competent) verse? They’re both here.
Want to read poems on the Holocaust next to poems on the Nakba, the Palestinian Catastrophe? There’s a whole section on it.
Ancient Greek Epitaphs and Epigrams? Anglo-Saxon Riddles and Kennings? Walt Whitman? Wit and Fluff? Everything you could hope for, with more being added all the time.
Truly one of the greatest resources in the world for lovers of poetry!
Thanks for the good review! (Hopefully it was earned.)
We’ve had many compliments from formal-minded poets over the years, and free verse poets as well. If any cares to read other reviews, they appear on our About page.
