This collection of Alexander Popes poetry showcases his genius and brilliancy as a satirist. He portrays the foppishness and absurd attitudes of that era. His trademark heroic couplets combined with the brilliant use of language mesmerize and exhilarate. This poetical collection has all a Pope-fan would want to know and enjoy. Marvellous!

Alexander Pope was born in Lombard Street, London, on the 21st of May 1688-the year of the Revolution. His father was a linen-merchant, in thriving circumstances, and said to have noble blood in his veins. His mother was Edith or Editha Turner, daughter of William Turner, Esq., of York. Mr Carruthers, in his excellent Life of the Poet, mentions that there was an Alexander Pope, a clergyman, in the remote parish of Reay, in Caithness, who rode all the way to Twickenham to pay his great namesake a visit, and was presented by him with a copy of the subscription edition of the "Odyssey," in five volumes quarto, which is still preserved by his descendants. Pope's father had made about £10,000 by trade; but being a Roman Catholic, and fond of a country life, he retired from business shortly after the Revolution, at the early age of forty-six.

Excerpt from The Poetical Works of Alexander Pope, Vol. 1 of 4: Memoir of Pope, With Extracts From His Correspondence The present volumes are designed to supply what the Publishers conceived to be wanting in our poetical litera ture - an edition of pope that should contain the latest biographical information, and occupy a middle place be tween the elaborate and expensive annotated editions of Warton, Bowles, and Roscoe, and those ordinary reprints in which no attempt is made to illustrate the text, and from which most of the author's own notes are excluded. It must be admitted that facilities now exist for accomplishing such a work, which were not accessible even when Mr. Roscoe undertook his editorial labours. The publication of family papers has of late years thrown much light on the domestic history of this period, and most of them contain direct reference to Pope and his friends. Among these may be mentioned the Suffolk correspondence, the Marchmont papers, Lord Wharnclifi'e's edition of the works of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, part of Horace Walpole's unri valled collection of letters, the correspondence of Lyttelton and' Chesterfield, and Lord Hervey's Memoirs of the Reign of George II.

The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars. Western literary study flows out of eighteenth-century works by Alexander Pope, Daniel Defoe, Henry Fielding, Frances Burney, Denis Diderot, Johann Gottfried Herder, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and others.
