Modern American Poetry Site (MAPS)

An excellent resource for better understanding poetry, MAPS provides in-depth analysis for poems that can be conveniently found in the Oxford Anthology of Modern American Poetry as well as biographical information and additional information on the various poets.

Although the poems themselves are not included (unless quoted in one of the essays), one can reference most of the corresponding poems online at places like http://www.poemhunter.com. For example, when reading the James Presley essay for Langston Hughes’ poem “Let America be America”, one can find the corresponding poem at http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/let-america-be-america-again
