Poets A - Z

We aim to be inclusive rather than exclusive in this directory, giving you access to the wide range of poets published, profiled or interviewed here at About Poetry & elsewhere on the Net, all indexed by name. You can use the index below to find information on a particular poet by name or to browse through our collections & articles in search of a new poet whose name you don't know yet. These pages include poets from every era and area of the world -- if you're seeking poets from a particular time period (including the present) or a certain country, use the Poetry History and Poetry Around the World sections below.
