University of Michigan Humanities Text Initiative: American Verse Project

The American Verse Project, a part of the University of Michigan Humanities Text Initiative, is assembling an electronic archive of volumes of American poetry prior to 1920. Full texts are being made available in both HTML and SGML (Standard Generalized Markup Language). Authors include William Cullen Bryant, Emily Dickinson, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and George Sylvester Viereck, among others. HTML versions include scanned images of title pages, verso pages, and tables of contents. Volumes can be viewed in their entirety or by table of contents entries. There is an option for revealing line groupings and line identifications. The entire collection is searchable, with Boolean and proximity searching available.
For SGML versions, you will need an SGML viewer attached to your browser.
