BPJ - Beloit Poetry Journal

With this website visitors can read selected poetry from the current issue of the Beloit Poetry Journal, which has been published since 1950, but only on the Web much more recently. In addition, in 2006 the full-text archive of all 227 issues of the Journal published since the fall of 1950 was made available online. The editors of the Journal point out "rare texts such as Anne Sexton's first published poem, Langston Hughes' translations of Federico Garcia Lorca's Gypsy Ballads, and a memorial chapbook for William Carlos Williams edited by David Ignatow in 1963 whose list of contributors reads like a Who's Who of mid-twentieth century American poetry." To find any of these highlights, there is an author index which will allow visitors to easily find these texts and many more. For those who like to view the cover art, searching the Archive section provides a browse by decade, with thumbnail images of all the covers, and links to the full text.
