The Index of Middle English Verse (IMEV) is a bibliographic index of poetry in Middle English. Its first print publication, in 1943, was an extension of Carleton Brown's Register of Middle English Religious & Didactic Verse, augmented by the inclusion of secular verse. This edition, edited by Brown and Rossell Hope Robbins, contained entries for over 4000 Middle English poems in more than 2000 manuscripts.[1] In 1965 the index was supplemented by Robbins and John L. Cutler.[2]
