    In comparing my own blog of poetry analyses with your database, I am surprised at how many poets and poems are missing. I could fill a number of your gaps!

    Hi, Just wondering if I need to cite your page if answering a written question for class?

      Your best bet is to ask your teacher/lecturer. If you are unsure always err on the side of caution.

    I love this website! I’m not obliged to “study” any poem as a coursework material. I’m just an Asian-American high school graduate preparing for college and trying to read more poetry in free time. I never formally studied English poetry but enjoy reading the untangled hidden meanings behind beautiful poems. I really appreciate your team’s efforts and I encourage you to spread the love of poetry by analyzing more poems.
