Sponsored by Gale Research, this site was constructed in honor of National Poetry Month in April but will remain active indefinitely. The site features biographies and a representative poem from each of 24 authors, including Shakespeare, Yeats, Poe, Frost, and Eliot. Each poem includes a line-by-line explication, as well as links to critical interpretations describing how the poem fits into the larger body of the poet's works. Other features of the site include a timeline of milestones in the history of poetry and suggestions for classroom activities.
