By Barbara Barrett. Explore the poetry of Robert E. Howard with this index guide to his verse. The index can be used to locate specific names and places, even obscure words. It contains many categories such as ANIMALS, WEAPONS, TREES, and more so that these words and related subject words can be easily explored. For example, under the listing for ANIMAL are all of the animals mentioned in Howard’s verse, from APE to WOLF, and everything in between. Each word is followed by a list of the poems in which that word appears. The index also contains a list of themes like WANDERLUST and HISTORY for readers interested in a particular topic. The book was designed with THE COLLECTED POETRY OF ROBERT E. HOWARD in mind, but can be used with any of Howard’s verse collections. There’s even a page number guide keyed to the major collections to help locate the poems. All this and more are contained in The Wordbook.
