Alexander Pope Selected Poetry, by Pope, A
Publisher: Oxford World's Classics 2008
Alexander Pope is regarded as the most important poet of the early eighteenth century. This collection, chosen from the Oxford Authors critical edition of Pope's major works, includes such important poems as The Rape of the Lock, Windsor Forest and The Duncaid. Pat Rogers's introduction urges us to see Pope as an accomplished practitioner of the poetry of ideas and of satirical reflection on human society.
