INDEX

All the items below are to be located in the “Comments and Notes” sections of the three works by Poe according to the letters and numbers assigned to them (that is, according to the paragraph numbers, not by pages) and under the initial letters “H” or “J” or “P”:

H = “Hans Pfaall” (“The Unparalleled Adventure of one Hans Pfaall”)

J = “Julius Rodman” (“The Journal of Julius Rodman”)

P = Pym (Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym)

The capital letters following the numbers refer to the succession of the notes. The letters “tp” or “t” refer to the “title page” or simply “title” on which a note is based for each work, and “Pr” to the Preface of Pym; the letters “MS N” are used after “H” (“Hans Pfaall”) to refer to Poe’s “Manuscript Notes” in forty-two short paragraphs, on which several notes are based; for example:

Harper, Wesley: . . . P tpA (see note A to the title of Pym)

Locke, Richard: . . . H MS N34B (see note B to paragraph 34 in Poe’s “Manuscript Notes” for “Hans Pfaall”)

The name or title in this index can be quickly found in the notes through the changing indicators in the heading of each page. Since the letter designates the work to which reference is being made, it is implicit that each topic is being discussed in the notes chiefly in relation to that work. Please note that the three letters of the works are arranged for each entry alphabetically (“H” and then “J” and finally “P”), not by their place in this volume: (1) Pym, (2) “Hans Pfaall” and (3) “Julius Rodman.” Except for the works of Poe, all publication titles are given under the authors’ names.
