Index

Nothing is indexed under Edgar Allan Poe. All his stories and poems, as well as his more noteworthy essays and miscellanies, are indexed under their titles. Works by others are generally listed under the authors’ names. This index is intended to be comprehensive, but not exhaustive. It does not include all the names and titles in the text, only those likely to be of significance to researchers; and these are often indexed selectively, excluding references which seem tangential or redundant. Individuals mentioned only once — briefly and casually — may be omitted if they appear to have had no demonstrable bearing upon Poe’s life or intellectual development. All magazines and newspapers mentioned in the text are included, and the listings for those to which Poe contributed have subheadings for his contributions. There has been no attempt, however, to give the titles of all the fillers and other minor pieces which Poe wrote for periodicals. His book reviews are entered under the names of the authors considered; but books which would seem of slight interest to most researchers — e.g., treatises on gardening or medicine — are not cited, either by author or title. Information on Poe is also indexed under pertinent locations (England, France, and the American cities he lived in or visited), the educational institutions he attended (University of Virginia and West Point), his proposed journals (Penn Magazine and the Stylus), and the following topic headings: alcoholism, athletic ability, ballooning, cats, childhood illnesses, cholera, coffee, copyright, cryptography, daguerreotypes, Episcopal High School, financial difficulties, foreign languages, Germanism, Greece, honorary memberships, income, insanity, Junior Debating Society, Junior Volunteers, lectures and readings, literary criticism, mesmerism, opium, painting, Philadelphia Custom House, phrenology, physical appearance, plagiarism, portraits, power of analysis, religious concepts, Rutgers Female Institute, schools, slavery and abolitionism, street pavements, tailors’ bills, teaching, Thespian Society, Transcendentalism, and U. S. Army.
