Alexander Pope; Tradition and Identity
Harvard University Press, 1972 - 241 Seiten
The author's main concern is the interaction of Pope's growing sense of his own identity with his admiration and emulation of great writers of the past. He sympathetically portrays basic biographical facts that contributed to Pope's identity as man and as poet, among them his physical deformity, his constant illnesses, his subjection to anti-Catholic bias, and his political alienation.
