This study of Alexander Pope, the dominant figure of 18th-century literature, traces his poetry from the early Pastorals and his brilliant mock-epic The Rape of the Lock, through the Essays and verse Epistles and on to his final satire, The Dunciad.

The targets of his ire - the dumbing-down of literature, the corruption of politicians, the rise of City money-men, and society's obsession with trivia - show that his views are as relevant in our day as they were in his.
