Supported by the Academy of American Poets, Find a Poem offers free access to the full text of more than 1,200 poems. In addition to poetry, this resource also provides author biographies, essays, and links to other related websites. Poems included in the archive reflect great variety, ranging from poetry for the very young to more mature pieces written by both traditional and contemporary poets. Poems may be located by searching for key words or lines of text from specific poems or by browsing for titles or first lines. The website features many enhancements including a Listening Booth, which links users to selected poems read by the author or other poets. By registering, users may also create a personalized online notebook of poems, biographies, and audio clips selected from the website. (author/ncl)
