Poetry is published 3 ways:
Single author book. Search the library catalog for a specific author.
(e.g. Dickinson, Emily)
An anthology. An anthology is a book of selected writings by various authors and it has a unifying theme. (e.g. a particular literary form, or subject.) To locate anthologies search the library catalog with the phrase: Poetry Anthology and combine with a second keyword to refine the search results, for example: Poetry Anthology AND 20th Century
In magazine or journals, for example, from the Booth Library Collection there are the journals: West Virginia History or Poets & Writers Magazine
