Houghton Mifflinís commitment to poetry spans well over one hundred years.
In the nineteenth century, we published the verse of Amy Lowell, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, John Greenleaf Whittier, James Russell Lowell, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Henry David Thoreau. In the twentieth century, we published such distinguised poets as Elizabeth Bishop, Anne Sexton, and C. K. Williams, among others. Today, Houghton Mifflin continues this proud tradition, publishing the work of modern masters such as Galway Kinnell, Mary Oliver, Michael Collier, and Donald Hall, the nationís fourteenth Poet Laureate.
