Allston Burr’s index will be most useful to that large number of Scott enthusiasts who have often wished for a quick guide to the numerous short poems imbedded in the novels and in the longer poems and dramas. The references are to the Cadell (1829-1833) edition of Scott’s Collected Works. The book is divided into five parts: titles of short poems, with first lines; short poems used as chapter headings or otherwise in the novels; short poems in the dramas; short poems in the long poems; and an index of all the short poems arranged alphabetically by first lines.
