Info: The Poetry Foundation, publisher of Poetry magazine, is an independent literary organization committed to a vigorous presence for poetry in our culture. It exists to discover and celebrate the best poetry and to place it before the largest possible audience.
Upon receipt of a major gift from philanthropist Ruth Lilly, the Poetry Foundation was established in 2003, evolving from the Modern Poetry Association, which was founded in 1941. The Poetry Foundation is one of the largest literary foundations in the world.
The Poetry Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law. The gift from Ruth Lilly has provided the Poetry Foundation with the opportunity to expand and enhance the presence of poetry in America and has established an endowment that will allow Poetry magazine to exist in perpetuity.
The Poetry Foundation works to raise poetry to a more visible and influential position in American culture. Rather than celebrating the status quo, the Foundation seeks to be a leader in shaping a receptive climate for poetry by developing new audiences, creating new avenues for delivery, and encouraging new kinds of poetry. In the long term, the Foundation aspires to alter the perception that poetry is a marginal art, and to make it directly relevant to the American public.
Comentario: Cuenta con una larga selección y archivo de poemas de acuerdo a su autor, tema y periodo. Tiene una pequeña introducción para cada autor y cuenta con un buscador que facilita la identificación de los versos.
