The Wordbook by Barbara Barrett

   Posted by: Rob Roehm    in News

wb-coverExplore 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 Howard mentions in his verse, from APE to WOLF, and everything in between. Each word is followed by a list of the poems in which that word appears. Many words also show descriptive adjectives that highlight Howard’s impressive ability to create powerful images. 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 is contained in The Wordbook.
