Chadwyck-Healey Editorial Statement:
The bibliographic source for the Database of African-American Poetry
is Afro-American Poetry and Drama, 1760-1975 by W. P. French et
al. The general policy has been to use first editions whenever
editions were selected if they were more inclusive. Where poems
appeared in their original dialect in an earlier edition and
standardised in a
later edition, both forms have been included. Poems originally
in periodicals have also been included. Textual apparatus and front
matter to the poems are generally ommitted, except the poet's own
are included in the database.
The PhiloLogic implementation of African-American Poetry, 1760-1900 is based on automatic conversion of the SGML-encoded documents provided by Chadwyck-Healey. The database has 12 million words, 96,700 unique forms, in 100 works, listed in the online Bibliography.
