Nineteenth Century Poets
The South Carolina Poetry Archives at Furman University serves to highlight the contributions of 20th and 21st century poets to South Carolina literature. However, Special Collections and Archives at Furman also maintains a small collection of works by 19th century South Carolina poets. Aside from their intrinsic historical value, these works allow researchers to better trace the evolution of poetic form and content in South Carolina over time.

Poets for which the archives have published works are filed in alphabetical order by author.
