Poetry Genius (formerly Poetry Brain) is the literary annotation project launched in 2012 by Rap Genius. Although our library of texts is still located on the main site, we’ve created this blog as a place to share PG-specific news and updates.
Just as Rap Genius explains the universe of song lyrics, Poetry Genius explains and annotates all kinds of literary works, from poetry and drama to fiction and memoir. It provides multiple interpretations of famous passages at a single click. It allows writers to annotate their own work, quickly and painlessly. It’s a whole new kind of library, and we’re building it with your help, line by line.
