Your Free Poetry Website. With over 140,000 full text poems, PoetryExplorer is the largest collection of classic and contemporary poetry in any medium. And it is FREE to all users! Poems are analyzed for subject content and for similarity and possible connection to other poems in the collection. As a result, PoetryExplorer provides several unique and important uses:
1. Subject access. Over 10,000 distinct subject headings can be searched. Searches for individual subjects can be made in the box on this page adjacent to Subject of the Month. In the tab Subject Discovery, specific subjects are arranged in general categories so as to facilitate “drill down” searches. For example, tap People on the top level which produces a long list of secondary general groups, including Military Figures; tap it and you will get poems for over 260 military personages.
2. Poems of possible interest. Each searched poem result will list other poems in the collection which are relevant.
THERE is no doubt that the many people are firmly convinced that they do not care for poetry. They have no use for it, they tell you. Either it bores them, as a fantastic, high-flown method of saying something that, to their way of thinking, could be better said in plain prose, or they look upon it as the sentimental nonsense of the moonstruck, lovesick young; a kind of intellectual “candy.”
There are many who really love poetry without knowing it, many who think they do not care for poetry, — either because they have contracted a wrong notion of what poetry is, or because they have some time or another made a bad start with the wrong kind of poetry.
