News at Eleven: [The Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics is]

a big brick of a volume, almost the size of a child's head, and it may be the last edition of PEPP to take shape as a physical printed book.
The new PEPP adds entries about things that didn't exist in 1993, and it does better by things that got short shrift from professors of literature back then. There's much more on 'the poetry of the indigenous Americas'; there are 'digital poetry', 'poetry slams' and 'American Sign Language poetry', though no 'deaf poetry' (not even a cross-reference), and nothing for British Sign Language poetry.
