Note that 2216 poems have been transcribed and encoded; the remaining 13814 have only metadata, figure descriptions, illustration encoding, and page-images, so you will not be able to find them by searching for text, except within titles, first lines and poem editorial notes. Search filters which apply only to transcribed poems are marked with an asterisk.
If you’re searching for proper nouns, capitalize the first letter; otherwise use lower-case. You can search for a quoted phrase, or use plus and minus signs to specify that a term must or must not appear in the result documents.
