In this review we concentrate on one important and neglected aspect of supernova research and discuss the literature concerned with the description, classification, and interpretation of the spectra of supernovae. This literature is very fragmentary and scattered, which no doubt in part explains the confusion that persists in the subject. We hope that this attempt to synthesize what is known about supernova spectra and to compile a bibliography of some of the more valuable contributions in this area will prove timely in view of the recent rapid expansion of observational efforts in this field, It will, of course, also reveal how sadly inadequate observational efforts have been in the past.
