Index [[M-Z]]

The Index is arranged alphabetically not only as to the main heads, but also within the heads, so far as the principal items are concerned. Minor page references follow these in order of pages. Then come letters from and to individuals. Letters to and from Poe are placed under “Poe, Edgar Allan,” and letters concerning Poe under the writers’ names. Volumes by Poe are in capitals and small capitals; all other volumes and all periodicals in italics, and all poems, stories and criticisms in roman type quoted.

Notes:

Although the contents and formatting of this subject index generally reflect what appeared in the original printing, changes have been made for the sake of the reader and due to formatting for hypertext. The entry titles in the original, for example, have been rendered in bold here, with the label terminating with a colon. (There is no such distinction in the original printing.) The original does indicate references to a footnote by the presence of an "n" following the page number (such as “119n”), but it does give the actual footnote number (such as “119n5,” for footnote 5 on page 119). (These numbers have been added in part because the desired footnote will not necessarily appear at the top of the screen when the link is selected. Also, where the original index has a reference to a set of related footnotes on a page, these have been expanded here so that there appears an index entry for each individual footnote.) Erroneous references have been corrected, and some additional entries inserted, as appropriate. (As one of many examples, a reference in the original index under “E. H. N. Patterson” actually belongs under “S. D. Patterson.” Also, there was no entry under “Mary Starr” because her real name was unknown when Quinn wrote this biography.) The introductory comment from the original has been reproduced.
