As might be expected there is a Shakespeare Concordance as well as studies on works by Byron, Johnson, and Emily Dickinson. The Freud Concordance was first published in 1980, an event which did not receive appropriate notice in these columns but was recognized in the analytic press as a significant contribution to psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic scholarship.
