His large oeuvre, written over a thirty-year period, encompasses satires, odes, and political verse and reflects the sexual, moral, and cultural issues of his time. This is the first overview to analyze the full range of Pope's work and to set it in its historical and cultural context. This volume will be indispensable not only for students and scholars of Pope's work, but also for all those interested in the Augustan age."--Jacket

Grub Street: studies in a subculture by Pat Rogers( Book )

20 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1972, this is the first detailed study of the milieu of the eighteenth-century literary hack and its significance in Augustan literature. Although the modern term 'Grub Street' has declined into vague metaphor, for the Augustan satirists it embodied not only an actual place but an emphatic lifestyle. Pat Rogers shows that the major satirists - Pope, Swift and Fielding - built a potent fiction surrounding the real circumstances in which the scribblers lived, and the importance of this aspect of their writing. The author first locates the original Grub Street, in what is no

The Alexander Pope encyclopedia by Pat Rogers( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alexander Pope (1688-1744) was the most important English poet of the 18th century, as well as an essayist, satirist, and critic. Many of his sayings are still quoted today. His Essay on Criticism shaped the aesthetic views of English Neoclassicism while his Essay on Man reflected the moral views of the Enlightenment. He participated fully in the critical debates of his time and was one of the few poets who supported himself through his writing. This reference conveniently summarizes his life and works." "The encyclopedia also provides a chronology and concludes with a selected, general bibliography. Because of Pope's central importance to the Enlightenment this book is also a useful companion to 18th-century literary and intellectual culture."--Jacket
