English Poetry Full-Text Database

Description: The English Poetry Full-Text Database contains electronic editions of 165,000 works from over 1,250 authors. The database spans from the Anglo-Saxon period to the close of the nineteenth century. The basis of the database was the New Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature (Cambridge University Press, 1969-1972). The texts have been encoded in SGML preserving line numbers, original page numbers, typographic emphasis as well as other structural elements. Texts can be copied and printed with or without the SGML markup. The database is fully searchable by words, phrases, collocations, and various combinations using Boolean operators or command line searching using the SGML tags. The English Poetry Full-Text Database forms part of Chadwyck-Healey's Literature Online service.

Requirements: PC running Windows 3.1+ with at least 8MB RAM. Multiple CD-ROM drives are recommended. Access through Literature Online: Internetworked computer with a graphical Web browser.
