The poems of Alexander Pope : a one-volume edition of the twickenham text with selected annotations

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
