So many questions surround the key figures in the English literary canon, but most books focus on one aspect of an author's life or work, or limit themselves to a single critical approach. Alexander Pope is a comprehensive, user-friendly guide which:
* offers information on Pope's life, contexts and works
* outline the major critical issues surrounding his works, from the time they were written to the present
*explains the full range of different critical views and interpretations
* offers guides to further reading in each area discussed.
