Poems by Alexander Pope( Book )

114 editions published between 1963 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This presentation of Pope's poems, excluding only his translations of Homer, is the only one-volume edition that can lay claim to completeness and accuracy of text. It presents the corpus of Pope's poetry as printed in the highly praised Twickenham Edition, except for the 1712 version of The Rape of the Lock and other early versions of phrases preserved in the critical apparatus of the six-volume work. Pope's notes to his poems are included, as well as a generous selection of the copious annotation in the Twickenham text. This reduced version of the unsurpassed standard edition of Pope -- one of the great achievements of modern English scholarship -- will be essential to both students and scholars. The publishers are surely right in claiming that this should for long remain the standard one-volume edition of Pope's poems. The Twickenham edition, now pausing for breath before plunging into the Homer translations, has been a splendid achievement, and Professor Butt's distillation of the long labors of his fellow editors is most commendable. - Back cover

Candide : or, Optimism by Voltaire( Book )

35 editions published between 1937 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,088 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was the indifferent shrug and callous inertia that this optimism concealed which so angered Voltaire who found the all for the best approach a patently inadequate response to suffering to natural disaters such as the recent earthquakes in Lima and Lisbon no to mention the questions of illness and mand made war. Moreover as the rebel whose satiric genius had earned him not only international acclaim but two stays in the Bastille, flogging and exile, Voltaire knew personally what suffering involved
