The Columbia Granger's Index to Poetry in Anthologies
Publisher description: Each edition of Granger's includes title, first line, last line, author, and subject indexes for approximately 400 poetry anthologies on library shelves. 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 authors or on subjects they are interested in. Each edition indexes about 150 anthologies that have been published since the last edition, substituting them for 150 anthologies that have since fallen out of use. The anthologies included in the 12th edition consist of all of the significant titles that have appeared since the completion of the 11th edition in 1997, such as the comprehensive Norton anthologies of English literature, American literature, and world masterpieces; the new Oxford, Penguin, and Faber anthologies; and the new Columbia anthologies of Chinese literature, gay literature, and contemporary American women's poetry. Also included are important new collections of Russian, Japanese, Italian, Latin American, and African poetry; of poetry from minority cultures, particularly women minorities, throughout the world; and of Native American, African American, and Asian American poetry. Granger's continues to index anthologies of religious poetry and children's verse, as well as topical collections on such subjects as popular culture and sports.
