Finding the Poem

To find a particular poem in the catalog, do an Author search to see if the library has a collection of poems by that author.
Also try WorldCat and search for the title of the poem.  You will find books that contain it.  If the UAH library has that book, you'll see that information.

Sources of Criticism

An individual poem may not be a subject of an entire book or article. In these cases, it would be better to search for a criticism of the poet’s work in general.

Recommended search terms:

   Poetry History and Criticism

   Author's name and (Criticism and Interpretation)

You can also search by the broader terms of:

   English Poetry

   American Poetry
