Eighteenth-Century Poetry Archive

Poets and poetry enthusiasts will delight in the Eighteenth-Century Poetry Archive, "a peer-reviewed, award-winning digital archive and research project devoted to the poetry of the long eighteenth century." Expanding on versions of text provided by the Text Creation Partnership from Gale's Eighteenth Century Collections Online, this archive has two main aspects: a digitized poetry catalog and research and analysis of these texts. The "Take the tour" button in the top-right corner is a great place to begin, providing a "10-step (2 min.) quick tour of the core features on any of the poem pages in the Eighteenth-Century Poetry Archive." From there, readers can browse all collection pieces (cataloged alphabetically) on the Works page. More than 3,000 poems from nearly 320 authors are featured. The site also offers "built-in digital tools" and helpful resources. University of Oxford Digital Librarian Alexander Huber founded and edited the project, which was conceptualized and completed between 2006 and 2019, with some ongoing updates.
