This collection of love poems, spanning four centuries of literature in English, has been taken from our English, American and African-American Poetry databases. The poems were selected by consulting anthologies of love poetry with further items being identified by conducting specific searches on key terms. Some major authors which appear in the main databases have been omitted for copyright purposes.
The poetry databases form part of Literature Online (http://lion.chadwyck.co.uk or http://lion.chadwyck.com), a much larger site which combines hundreds of thousands of texts with reference works, bibliographies and catalogs, and provides hypertext links to relevant resources on other websites, both commercial and free.
Literature Online is a subscription service which is of particular value to academic libraries, teaching centers and research institutions. Institutions are welcome to apply for a free trial subscription to the service.
The LionHeart site and Literature Online have been created by Chadwyck-Healey, an international group of publishing companies with offices in the USA, the United Kingdom, and Spain. It publishes reference and research publications for the academic, professional and library markets in a variety of media, including electronic, microform and print. Chadwyck-Healey was a pioneer in the use of CD-ROM and is recognized as a world leader in the creation of large full-text and bibliographic databases from printed sources.
