 The Sonnet in American Literature
The American poets of major or minor rank who have not, according to their ordinarily accepted collected works, used the sonnet form at all are not very numerous.
Briefly, then, it is the opinion of the author of this study that once the American sonnet had passed out of its apprentice years and been given the example of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, it became a serious rival, both in bulk and in artistic worth, of its English contemporary.
The American sonnets written in the fourth quarter of the eighteenth century and those written in the first quarter of the twentieth are alike in prosodic execution.

 American Literature Web Resources-Review: Ishikawa's American Lit Resources
Some of the sections are very small, the American drama page featured only six links, but since Ishikawa clearly updates and searches for new content, one would expect the under-represented categories to fill out, eventually.
For example, clicking on "American Women Poets" led me to a page that was about Dexter Wallace (pseud for Edgar Lee Masters) rather than the expected link to a list of American women poets.
The graphic on the site's first page, Grant Wood's American Gothic, leads to an interesting discussion of the painting; however, the directly quoted material is not correctly cited and sets a poor precedent for students who may be learning how to incorporate research into their own work.
