About

Overview

This new eBook edition of the indispensable Princeton Encyclopedia assesses 106 national poetries, with coverage of "every significant poetry tradition in the world." Updated for the times, gone are such entries as "Negro poetry American"; "Afro-American poetry" takes its place. Many entries such as "sonnet" are virtually unchanged from the earlier edition; others, such as "Feminist poetics," are brand-new. This is an essential purchase for any library supporting the study of poetry.
