Poetry World Map

The world map (and table) here shows the distribution of poetry on this site. I will try to keep it more or less up to date. Those marked with * aren't truly countries  but are ones that I personally feel are worthy of separation.

The current map is dated 17 January 2019 - click for a larger version.

World map showing number of poems per country

I have tried to include poetry from all around the world on this site, and have at least one poem from every country (I think), except Vatican City as no one is allowed to actually be born there. Note that where a poet is from a former time, I have put their country of origin in modern terms, even though the country may not have been (named) the same in their time. In some cases it isn't possible to pin them down, in which case I have used a more generic country name (e.g. Korea). Finally, some poets were born in one country and lived most of the lives in another - in such cases both countries are "credited" unless they left their birthplace in childhood/infancy.
