The articles in this reference book provide a complete survey of the poetic history and practice in every major national literature or cultural tradition in the world. Thus the book gives full coverage of Indo-European poetries (all the major Celtic, Slavic, Germanic and Romance languages, as well as more obscure ones like Hittite), the ancient Middle Eastern poetries (Hebrew, Persian, Sumerian and Assyro-Babylonian), subcontinental Indian poetries (the widest linguistic diversity), Asian and Pacific poetries (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Mongolian and others), continental American poetries (all the modern Western cultures and Native Indian in North, Central and South American regions), and African poetries (ancient and emergent, oral and written).
