Alexander Pope: The Poetry of Allusion
Clarendon Press, 1959 - 368 Seiten
One has to look back to Mark Van Doren's momentous John Dryden for a study of a major English poet which is as ambitious in intention and as convincing in execution.--New Statesman. Will send the reader back to his Pope with an enriched appreciation.--Times Literary Supplement. The
paperback reissue of a long out-of-print classic, this volume examines how allusion works in Pope, allowing the modern reader to feel the presence of Virgil, Horace, and Homer much in the way that Pope and his contemporaries felt it and giving readers a concrete sense of the poetic voices that Pope
heard as he wrote.
