Alexander Pope (21 May 1688 – 30 May 1744) is regarded as one of the greatest English poets, and the foremost poet of the early eighteenth century. He is best known for his satirical and discursive poetry, including The Rape of the Lock, The Dunciad, and An Essay on Criticism, as well as for his translation of Homer

One of those old-fashioned theory-free bios; gives an vivid picture of the best and worst of Pope's nature, with passages informing the whole of Stephen's apprehension of him. Beautiful prose. Briefish, so good for seminars on Pope.
  • MisterQweene
An intelligent short "life and works" of Pope from someone who clearly dislikes him and can find only a little to admire. I am not competent to evaluate Stephen's claims of nefarious duplicity on Pope's part in the specific cases adduced (though it is clear enough that there is controversy about each of them even if some charges are generally accepted), but when it comes to evaluations of the poems themselves, I do know an "ex cathedra" assertion when I hear one. Stephen seems to be attempting to be fair (or at least he admits counter evidence when it is obvious) but I cannot escape the sense that Pope just didn't fit his notion of what poetry is or what the correct feelings and attitudes of a person should be. If I were a serious student of Pope, I would supplement this with Maynard Mack for the life and Samuel Johnson for the critical evaluations. (That is, someone with access to the full evidence about the life and action of the man and someone not reading the poet backward from a Romantic attitude toward art and society.)
