Union First Line Index

A brand new and really useful research resource: http://firstlines.folger.edu./

It’s a searchable first and last line index of manuscript poems in the Bodleian Library, Beinecke Library, British Library, Folger Shakespeare Library, Harvard University, Huntington Library, and the University of Leeds, and other places.

It’s a good way of finding out if a poet is drawing on a common motif or responding directly to another poem.

I just did a search (under ‘Advanced’, search term: ‘First line’) for ‘tell me no more’ and it brought up 30 results including Hester Pulter’s poem on her daughter Jane.
