Overview

The second edition of The Columbia Granger's Index to Poetry in Collected and Selected Works greatly expands the range of one of the oldest continuously published reference works in the United States. Granger's performs a valuable service for librarians by helping people locate poems when they have limited information about them, and by helping them locate poems by author or by the subjects they are interested in. Each edition of Granger's includes title, first line, author, and subject indexes for over 300 poetry collected and selected works on library shelves.

In total, the second edition includes 315 works, by 266 different poets, locating more than 65,000 poems by title, first line, author, and subject. Included in this edition are the works of many of the major American and British poets of the last thirty years, such as Robert Pinsky, Seamus Heaney, and Paul Muldoon; important twentieth-century American poets, such as Langston Hughes, Dorothy Parker, and Robert Penn Warren; twentieth-century foreign poets in new translations, such as Eugenio Montale and Paul Celan; and diverse poets from all times and places, collected in new editions, such as Cold Mountain, Jones Very, and Guido Cavalcanti. An expanded Subject Index contains more than 4,400 subjects, including many new subjects relating to specific people, places, or events from the history and culture of the twentieth century. Langston Hughes's poems on the Scottsboro case and the Spanish Civil War are as easy to find as Wallace Steven's poems about perception and Yusef Komunyakaa's poems about jazz.
