Poets House Launches New Online Public Access Catalog
Poets House is pleased to announce the launch of its online public access catalog, making its comprehensive collection of poetry searchable by readers and writers across the globe. The culmination of many years of work, the new catalog provides poets and poetry readers access to the Poets House collection—more than 50,000 volumes of poetry—in a way that was not possible before.
Poet Lee Ann Brown discusses the poetic movement that started at the experimental Black Mountain College in the 1950s and 1960s, including a focus on Charles Olson and Robert Duncan, as well as their collaborators.
Poet Martín Espada addresses the political poetic tradition of Puerto Rico, from Julia de Burgos to three major poets—Clemente Soto Vélez, Juan Antonio Corretjer and Francisco Matos Paoli—who were imprisoned for their “seditious” words and ideas.
