The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing

Mad, bad Lord Byron: poet, rake - and indexer?

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (2021), 39, (3), 283–292.

Abstract

Was the English poet Lord Byron an indexer? Hazel Bell examines the index in the 1926 edition of The poetical works of Lord Byron, which is written in a provocative style that reinforces the opinions expressed in the notes that accompany Byron’s poetry. Sadly, the indexer is not named. Whether or not it was written by the poet himself, it is a fascinating index that has sadly been omitted from a later edition.
