Use of Thematic Guide

In order to access the bibliography according to thematic keywords, you need to download both the "authors.pdf" file [1] as well as the "thematic.pdf" file [2].

The authors.pdf file contains a list of all poems, sorted by their authorsī last names. Each poem has been given a number. The thematic.pdf contains a table that lists keywords / categories in the left column and a list of numbers in the right column. These numbers correspond to the ones in the authors.pdf file.

If you are, for instance, looking for poems dealing with "The Prairie", you can see that poems no. 8, 52, 94 etc. employ "The Prairie" in some way. If you check in the authors.pdf file, you will find that these poems are AMABILEīs "Prairie", CAMPBELLīs "Prairie", and COLEMANīs "Prairie Winds".
