Models of clarity and control, they exemplified the classical poetics of the Augustan age. This volume contains a rich selection of Pope's work, including such well-known poems as the title selection-a philosophical meditation on the nature of the universe and man's place in it-and ""The Rape of the Lock, "" a mock-epic of rare charm and skill. Also included are ""Ode on Solitude, "" ""The Dying Christian to His Soul, "" ""Elegy to the Memory
