Poetry Awareness Month & University Libraries

The creativity of an author who creates a literary piece that is an: “. . . imaginative awareness of experience in language chosen and arranged to create a specific emotional response through meaning, sound, and rhythm. . .” (as defined within the pages of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary) can be considered a poet.

In honor of those who write ballads, epics, haiku, lyrics, odes, sonnets, or concentrate on another literary form (along with their readership) are recognized this January as part of Poetry Awareness Month being celebrated across the globe.

The University Libraries features several thousand first-hand works, critical studies, and reviews of poetry written between the 15th century and the present day. A starter list of titles found within our SetonCat holdings catalog found via the following link.

In addition, we have various interdisciplinary Library Research Guides and specialized English Databases to aid with finding authors, titles, and various styles of expression for study.
