Chadwyck-Healey Editorial Statement: The English Poetry
Full-Text Database comprises the works of c. 1,350 poets from
600-1900. The choice of editions has
been made under the guidance of the Editorial Board. No one single
approach to the whole corpus has been possible, but the general policy
has been to select the more
reliable early and, where appropriate, collected editions. Certain
categories of material have as a general rule been excluded from the
database: translations into English
verse after 1800; hymns published after 1800; works in languages other
than English; poems never published or only published in contemporary
newspapers, journals or
miscellanies; verse dramas intended for the stage. Please note that
the emphasis of the database is on the actual text of the poems rather
than on textual apparatus and
front matter, which are generally omitted. A poet's own notes,
however, are generally included.
The PhiloLogic implementation of English Poetry is based on automatic conversion of the SGML-encoded documents provided by Chadwyck-Healey. The database has 90 million words, 914,000 unique forms, in 4,409 works, listed in the online Bibliography.
