Pope, Alexander


    Alexander Pope, master of the heroic couplet, is the best - known poet of the early eighteenth century. Several of Pope's couplets have been so often quoted that they seem like cliches now, which is an indication of the power and influence of his work.

' Most of us, at some point in our lives, have quoted Pope without realizing it. ;
