Poets of the twentieth century.

The Faber Poetry Library provides access to the works of the most influential poets of the twentieth century. It contains the works of many of the greatest poets currently read and studied. This is the first time Faber and Faber's most popular writers have been published in electronic form. Students and scholars can now search the full-text of more than four thousand poems by over 40 British, Irish and post-colonial poets. The Faber list includes some of the greatest modern poets from T.S. Eliot (a Faber director and the firm's first poetry editor) to Seamus Heaney, Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath.
