One thought on “Epic Poems You’ve Never Read 4: Alexander Pope’s The Rape of the Lock

  1. Thank you! It was delightful to read about “The Rape of the Lock” via your blog. I remember memorizing all of the editions, changes, revisions, etc. when I was in school. How I admired Pope’s ease in writing and his wit: I love the description of Belinda’s toilet stand with its “puffs, powders, patches, bibles, billet-doux” and the ultimate apotheosis of the lock.
