This Critical Survey was originally published in 1983 and 1984 in separate English- and foreign-language series, a supplement in 1987, a revised English-language series in 1993, and a combined revised series in 2003. The Fourth Edition includes all poets from the previous edition and adds 146 new ones, covering 845 poets in total. Altogether, the writers covered in this set represent more than 40 countries and the history of poetry from antiquity to the 21st century. The set also offers 72 informative overviews; 20 of these essays were added for this edition, including all the literary movement essays. In addition, seven resources are provided, two of them new. Author portraits are included as available.

For the first time, the material in the Critical Survey of Poetry has been organized into five subsets by geography and essay type: a 4-volume subset on American Poets; a 3-volume subset on British, Irish, and Commonwealth Poets; a 3-volume subset on European Poets; a 1-volume subset on World Poets; and a 2-volume subset of the Topical Essays. A Cumulative Indexesvolume covering all five subsets is free with purchase of more than one subset.

The result is flexibility for libraries, allowing them to select the material most needed for their poetry reference collections and build the larger set over time. Subset details are listed below:
