Alexander Pope (1688-1744) was a gifted poet, literary critic and translator of the Augustan Age, whose powerful poetic satire and perfection of the English heroic couplet makes him one of the most famous and respected poets of all time. Pope embodied eighteenth-century neoclassical ideals like order, beauty, sophisticated wit, and refined moral sentiment. Included in this collection is «The Rape of The Lock», a satirical poem that mocks ancient epics, one of Pope's most famous works. Also included is «An Essay on Man», a work that met immediate acclaim throughout Europe upon publication, and is still renowned today. In this work, Pope attempts to «vindicate the ways of God to man» (I. 16). Additionally, «The Major Works of Alexander Pope» also includes «The Dunciad», a work regarded as a literary landmark in satirical writing, personifying Dullness as a goddess and the harm she causes to the kingdom of Great Britain.
Considered the preeminent verse satirist in English, Alexander Pope (1688-1744) brought wide learning, devastating wit and masterly technique to his poems. Models of clarity and control, they exemplified the classical poetics of the Augustan age.This volume contains a rich selection of Pope's work, including such well-known poems as the title selection — a philosophical meditation on the nature of the universe and man's place in it — and «The Rape of the Lock,» a mock-epic of rare charm and skill. Also included are «Ode on Solitude,» «The Dying Christian to His Soul,» «Elegy to the Memory of an Unfortunate Lady,» «An Essay on Criticism,» «Epigram Engraved on the Collar of a Dog,» «Epistle [IV] to Richard Boyle, Earl of Burlington: Of the Use of Riches,» «Epistle to Dr. Arbuthnot; or, Prologue to the Satires» and more.Taken together, these poems offer an excellent sampling of Pope's imaginative genius and the felicitous blending of word, idea and image that earned him a place among the leading lights of 18th-century literature.
