The Modern American Poetry Site is a comprehensive learning environment and scholarly forum for the study of modern and contemporary American poetry.
Started as a multimedia companion to the Anthology of Modern American Poetry (Oxford University Press, 2000), MAPS has grown over the past decade to more than 30,000 pages of biographies, critical essays, syllabi and images relating to 161 poets.
Criticism can be viewed through the classic list of poets and through the new poet search page, where poets can be searched alphabetically, chronologically by birth date, by race/ethnicity, and by group/school of poetry.
