Though critical opinion on Alexander Pope has frequently been divided, he is now regarded as the most important poet of the early eighteenth century. An invalid from infancy, he devoted his energies towards literature and achieved remarkable success with his first published work at the age of twenty-one. A succession of brilliant poems followed, including An Essay on Criticism (1711), Windsor Forest (1715), and his masterpiece, The Rape of the Lock. A second period of great poetry was begun in 1728 with the appearance of the first Dunciad. All these works--which exhibit Pope"s astonishing human insight, his wide sympathies, and powers of social observation (displayed to greatest effect in his talent for satire)--are included in this selection of his poetry. It has been compiled by the distinguished Pope scholar and editor Pat Rodgers, who also provides an indispensable introduction that offers a new interpretation of Pope"s poetry, and the philosophical ideas behind it. "Good notes, especially on esoteric terms, concepts, [and] items endemic to the 18th century."--Mary Norton, Western Carolina University "This is an excellent classroom text for a course in major 18th century poets. I would not hesitate to use it or recommend it to others."--Robert D. Spector, Long Island University "An absorbing and erudite study."--John Marillo, North Carolina State University "The cleanest text of all Pope anthologies combined with the most helpful notes make this the most accessible collection of Pope"s poems available to students."--Jerome Donne, University of Central Florida
