How I Use It
My students do an in depth analysis of a poem per week. This site has 180 great poems which are accessible yet sophisticated. There is enough here to sink your teeth into but the poetry deals with themes and subjects that are relevant to teenage life.
My Take
Great site. Well organized and simple. The only thing that might make it better would be a tagging system to help organize poetry by theme in addition to chronology.
